I have just completed my second year as a film student at Temple
University. I am organizing a traveling student film showcase featuring
exclusively the work of my fellow temple students. We are undertaking this
large effort as a means to promote ourselves and also raise money for
future school projects. We have a list of 15 potential locations and it is
on a path from Harrisburg, PA to Philadelphia, happening between July and
the commencement of the new school year. The Allen Theater in Anneville
has expressed its interest in participation and the Middletown Area Arts
Collective just outside of Harrisburg has been booked for our kick-off
screening on July 9th.
I emailing you to inform you we undertaking this project and are hoping
for the support of our department. We believe that though our film school
does not hold the reputation of being prestigious, it certainly should be
respected. We appreciate the opportunities and education our department
and school provides for us. Not many schools can brag about the fact that
freshman can be shooting film by their second semester and they could be
shooting on the Red One digital cinema camera just months later. The
concentration of Temple students working in the industry right out of
college is also extremely high.
Would you be willing to pass this along to some of the members of the
faculty? We would love it if some of the faculty in the film department
would be willing to travel with us to some of the locations and speak to
the audiences and share the limelight of our efforts.
I am going to be emailing Ms. Kozen to send out a message over the
listserv for students that would like to submit their work. We are try to
fill a block of two hours with exceptional material.
