CET Film Production at FAMU: Narrative

Join Cameron Ruscitti in the Keefe Campus Center Theater to learn more about the newly approved program based at FAMU, the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague.
With state-of-the-art facilities, inspiring faculty mentors, and a jaw-dropping roster of famous alumni, this is the school for aspiring filmmakers. This is one of the only programs that allows you to learn old-school film production techniques—16mm or 35mm. Working in these media means that planning is everything and every shot counts—lessons that come in handy when you switch back to digital after the program.
The film is approximately 15 minutes long and will run three to four times during the hour with a Q&A time.

Diversity@ Bain: Networking Ice Cream Social

Join alumni representatives from Bain & Company, shortly before their larger information session that evening, for an ice cream social (catered by local favorite, Flayvors) and discussion regarding Bain’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Diversity is key to Bain & Company’s mission of building extraordinary teams that deliver unparalleled results for the firm and its clients. They’ve found that the best solution to a complex problem often comes from a different perspective or a fresh point of view. For that reason, Bain strives to recruit people with exceptional talent and ability—and to celebrate their differences, develop and train them, and then give them the opportunity to be the best they can be.
Attend this informal networking event to learn more!
