What To Do In Advance

Find up to three reliable friends/classmates that you think would work well together.
Remember these are the people you will be splitting prizes with, so choose wisely!
Also note, you may use more talent and resources than those registered.

Going home for Spring Break?
Bring back any video gear you might need!
Step Three: Attend the GIFF Pre-Event!
April 3rd 2013, 5PM Brodie 239
This year CIT and DML staff will be holding a GIFF Pre-Event to help orient teams' expectations for the GIFF.
This orientation will be held in Brodie 239. Teams are encouraged to attend for a chance to meet other teams,
the event coordinator, ask questions and receive T-shirts.
Step Four: Plan The "Who - Do - What"
Who will be your writer? Who will be your on-screen talent?
Who will shoot your video? Who will edit?
Be sure to play to everyone's strengths.
Step Five: Front-load Your Sleep and be Ready to Rock
Make sure that you are well rested come 5:00 on Friday. You're gonna need it!
Also, come by Brodie 239 to work on your project and drink some coffee.
