At the start of the Fall and Spring semesters the Film Program at the UCF School of Visual Arts & Design hosts a Production Meet & Greet to help student filmmakers find crew members for their upcoming productions. It is like a job fair for UCF student film projects. This event also serves as a great opportunity for students to meet new friends and similarly minded individuals to collaborate with on future creative projects.
How to Participate
Students Who Want to Volunteer as Crew
Any and all students are eligible to volunteer as crew members. Come on down and see what the details are for each project and find a shoot that works for you. These projects will need all kinds of help, so don’t be afraid to try on different hats and take on new challenges. This is a great way to gain some experience!
Student Film Productions Looking to Recruit
If you wish to participate and recruit crew members (hand out flyers about your film needs, have a sign-up sheet to collect info on interested students, display a poster, etc.) please email Lisa Peterson [Lisa.Peterson@ucf.edu] with the information requested in the Meet & Greet Project Information form. There will be folding tables set up for you to use as a “booth.” We will hold a spot for you if you send Lisa the form.
It is strongly recommended that you create a handout – you can use the Meet & Greet Information form as an example if you want – so that each potential volunteer crew member has something to take away with all the important contact information and details about your project. You should also have a way to keep a record of the names and contact info of any students who want to work on your shoot. You can use the Crew Contact Information form to do this or make your own.
All UCF undergraduate and graduate students are welcomed to attend the Production Meet & Greet; but only UCF/SVAD Film Program students are able to setup recruitment stations at this event.
The next Film Production Meet & Greet has been scheduled for Friday, January 26th, 2018 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm in the Film Sound Stage | NSC-181A.
