FILM MAKING IS A PROFOUND MEANS OF COMMUNICATION

This campaign is about organizing a Student Film Contest for Engineering Majors with deep collaboration from Liberal Arts majors. The contest will help engineering students master public communication and audio-visual story telling with empathy and passion through their unique lenses as only they can tell.


FILM MAKING CAN "SAVE" ENGINEERS

A solid education experience in the arts and humanities is absolutely essential for engineering majors to be effective agents of change through the innovations they will operate or design in future. There is a need to dispel a myth that engineers cannot tell stories about how engineering makes a difference to the fabric of our lives through personal experiences that matter. By organizing a film contest for the students every two years (the inaugural one has already taken place in March 2017), we plan bring the engineering students closer to liberal arts & sciences majors and appreciate the value of arts and humanities in engineering.



IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO MAKE GOOD FILMS

This campaign builds on a parallel effort from UW Student Technology Fund where we have requested 22,000 USD for mobile and on-site video footage storage and on-site video editing through portable platforms (macbooks) for the student contestant teams. This crowdfunding campaign is aimed at covering incidental expenses such as video editing software (Adobe Premiere), logistics of the film contest event, training student contestants in story boarding etc. The lead of this campaign has been involved in running student film courses, contests and film making since 2007. His recent productions like "Feeding Asia: Mainstreaming Smart Ag Technology" and "Cotton Fields from the Ivory Tower" is a deep collaboration between engineering and the arts and is currently raising awareness of issues at the grassroots level.


THE NEXT OSCAR EVENT FOR ENGINEERS

The next contest is scheduled for 2019 (March). Announcement for the 2nd Student Film Contest (open to all engineering majors with collaboration from arts/sciences major) will go out early 2018. Once teams are formed, the fun will begin, just like the first contest (check out the student made films above and below)!
