21 members present


Minutes: Passed


President: Nothing really to report except that Film Board is getting confirmations about the movies that were ordered; K-19 was just confirmed so Film Board is looking good.


Vice President: Not present but the sign up sheet is going around the room.


Secretary: I added the new members to the email account and also sent out an updated a fall Film Board membership list to the list.


Treasurer: For the Fastlane Preview we sold $26.50 in Concessions
For Undercover Brother, we sold 291 tickets and made $183.75 in Concessions.
There is currently about $3,300.00 available in the account, OOOOOhhhhh


Equipment Supervisor: The movie “Insomnia” will be put together on Wednesday night around 7:00pm and then shown around 8:00pm unless Brian states otherwise at the Tuesday meeting or in an email Wednesday afternoon or evening.  Brian has a conflict so another projectionist will be showing the movie, same time same place.

The shipping on “Insomnia” will cost a lot of money since Warner Brothers shipped it early, with shipping costs amounting to $80.00 or so.  We need to make a list of any Warner Brothers movies that Film Board will be ordering in the future to avoid such costs.


Web page: The web page has been updated and some pop ups have been added.


Publicity: Not present


Concessions: No report


Advertising: The slides were put to the test last weekend and while some of them look good, others do not.  Advertising will be going through the slides and deciding which ones to keep and which ones to remove; problems arose do to problems with contrasting backgrounds and some other errors, etc.  If anyone sees any problems with the slides please refer them to advertising for correction or comment, they would be greatly appreciated.


Advisors: Not present


Old Business: It appears that WMTU is going to partake in a joint advertising venture with Film Board; good relations are always good to find.  As described in the minutes last week Film Board will show a WMTU slide they design and in return WMTU will broadcast what movie Film Board is showing on a weekly basis.


New Business: Very Important: Advertising for the movie “Red Dragon” was passed out at the meeting tonight, so if you were not at the meeting there is a lot of publicity in the office that can be picked up this weekend.  If you come in to work a show or just want to stop by, feel free to take some posters and put them up around campus.  There are a lot of regular size fliers that can be hung up, some bigger ones that can go up in the popular spots, and then there are some marquee posters too.  There will also be a sign up sheet for “Red Dragon” next week if anyone wants to work that show and or sell concessions.

Next Wednesday the regular preview may take place after the “Red Dragon” showing in which the “Borne Identity” will be the double feature for Film Board members only.

NIGHT has contacted Bryan about doing some sort of murder mystery dinner and a movie thing in conjunction with Film Board.  In the discussion it was mentioned that perhaps the hall across from Fisher 135 could be used and a 16mm movie could be shown but that would mean getting speakers from SLS, plus spending Film Boards time, money, and resources.  If NIGHT want to pay the bill for SLS, the movie, and projectionist fees, they are almost better off showing it on there own over in UN115.


Meeting Adjourned: I wasn’t watching the clock, I was eating pizza, meeting ended sometime in the P.M.


Dutifully Submitted,

Daniel J. Weir
