I hope you all enjoyed last night's first meeting. Even though it was mostly information, I am sure it was info everyone was excited to have. There are two very important things that I need to tell you now in anticipation of next week's meeting.
1) We WILL BE VOTING next week on all three movies that SOI will screen this semester, one each for the months of October, November, and December.
Last year for the sake of saving time the officers selected a few movies each for the group to vote on. This year we want this process to be more democratic, so we are asking each of you to submit ONE movie suggestion. The movie that you nominate can be live-action or animation, but must have some kind of relevance to art and/or illustration, whether in theme, content, production, or even if it is just an excellent animated film. Here is what I need from you:
- E-mail me the name of your film and a very brief description of it. (In case neither I nor the other officers have seen it already.)
- Deadline for suggestions is noon next Wednesday, the 12th. (This way there can be a master list ready prior to the meeting.)
Voting will be held during our meeting. Each member will choose three films that they would like to see this year. The three films with the most overall votes will be selected, and the officers and I will choose their showing dates and announce them shortly after the meeting via e-mail.
Now on to the second item:
2) 2 weeks from today, submissions for Illustration 24 logos will be due.
We will give you the exact final presentation specs next week, but we encourage you to start sketching NOW. The logo must include "Illustration 24" and the sub-header "and 24-Hour Draw."
The last bit of news is that a permanent meeting location is in the works. I will be e-mailing you all our new room number very soon, so keep checking your inboxes!
Thanks and I hope to see everyone at the Ice Cream Mixer in a half-hour!
