The week before our study trip to Paris. The excitement and fervour grow, but not in the festival’s favour. With all the tasks done for Communications, I decided to take advantage of this opportunity and “bond” with my new team. I had previously spoken to the manager of the Social Media team, and she added me to their Wechat group.
Last Thursday before Paris, we had a meeting because Social Media had a plan, and I wanted to be part of it. The group seems to be communicating very well, and are prompt for their meetings. With all the behind the scenes filming and preparing, and with all teams already in their places and with a plan (hopefully), it seemed a great idea to give our Facebook followers a glimpse of what we are doing in the form of a short 1-2 minute video of different group members presenting their team and their work… and of course promoting the festival. We started with a member of the Creatives. We struggled a bit to find the perfect place to film it, stopped more than a few students to pass, filmed it a couple of times, but finally succeeded. With everyone so busy with deadlines and packing, it was pretty hard to find available members, and as I am a part of Communications as well, I used this advantage (if more work could be called an advantage) to do the mini-interview as a representant o Communication.
Social Media’s manager is now to get the approval from the head of Social Media, East Winds co-director, Andreea Dascalu, and then release the videos on the world wide web, well actually here: https://www.facebook.com/EastWindsFilmFestival/?ref=br_rs
During the next week, we are planning to film the presentation videos with the rest of the teams and to have them done before the study leave.
We watched the first film, a horror from Thailand, but it’s still a secret so shh… We (as in Communications we)will probably have to review it at some point and I am looking forward to that.
