Tonight the BFC had it's first meeting of the year, and what a meeting it was! We broke tradition by sitting in a circle and introducing ourselves to the group. Next, we voted in the new Member at Large: Tyler Henker.

We're still looking for PAs for Thursday, September 20th-Sunday, September 23rd.

Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I've updated the site (school's been crazy for me lately). But enough excuses, make sure you come to tonight's club meeting at 7 pm, after TV class. Don't forget, it's Crazy Hat Night! Whoever has the craziest hat wins a prize! Also, see our Student Life Representative Ashley Benton for "We Can Win" raffle tickets. Remember, the majority of the money made from these tickets goes directly to the club!

Sorry for the lack of updates, it's been a busy time! Well school's back, and so are Broadcast and Film Club meetings! The first meeting of the semester is Wednesday, September 14, 2011. We encourage all newcomers to come to meetings! It's a great way to meet people in the department (plus, you get a T-shirt and free food!) Dues for the year are only $10, so whether you're a returning member or a newcomer we hope to see you next Wednesday!

Madonna's 5th PAH-Fest Motown 2011 came to a close tonight, and what a week it was! We got to watch some videos from Madonna alumi and students alike on Tuesday (after an amazing barbecue!) We had some awesome kids from Vanguard CDC participate in our contests (and they even won a few!) There were three panels with experts from the film industry, giving out invaluable information. Biker Cat even made his first appearance in Motown! It was a great week, for veterans and newcomers alike! If you missed the closing ceremonies, check them out on USTREAM!

PAH-Fest Motown 2011 is nearing an end. This has kept all of us busy, but thankfully we had "The Gray Zone" to vlog the events throughout the week! The closing ceremonies, as always, will be held in Kresge Hall at 7 pm. Come join us to watch the winning films, where recent Madonna graduate Sara Simnitch (now a member of the Channel 9 & 10 News team) will be our MC! If you would like to watch the films in advance, click here!

The BFC made its debut at the Livonia Spree, and we managed to make quite a splash!

Top right-Walid Jaward, BFC Member and Director of "Clayman",     Bottom right-Jeff Fleshner, TLS Department Employee)


Between filming patrons at the Spree, to unofficial "karaoke", we definately spread the word around, both about Madonna and the BCA department!


(The line of tents, set up just outside of the Eddie Edgar Ice Arena)

We plan to do this tent every June when the Spree comes around, so make sure that you volunteer to help out with the tent if you're interested in getting involved with the BFC, promoting Madonna, and having a good time!

This year, the Broadcast and Film Club will have its own booth at the Livonia Spree! For those of you who don't know, the Livonia Spree is an annual carnival here in Livonia, located at the corner of Farmington and Lyndon. It is only about a 5 minute drive from Madonna, so it's right nearby!

The booth will be open:
Saturday, June 25th. 10 AM to 5 PM
Sunday, June 26th. 10 AM to 5 PM

We will need BFC members to help man the booth. Contact Paula Wilson (pwilson606@my.madonna.edu) or Kary Feick (kfeick@my.madonna.edu) if you would like to volunteer! Volunteers would work in pairs and shifts would range from 2-3 hours. But any time you can donate at all helps! Please wear a BFC shirt if you have it, or a Madonna shirt. This will be a great opprotunity to promote both the Capstone class's upcoming film "Clayman", as well as PAH-fest Motown and Madonna in general. Hope to see you there!
