Great River Film Initiative January Meeting

We will be meeting at the Carnegie Stout Library in the Lacy Boardroom on January 13th.

During this month’s meeting we will discuss where we would like have the meetings going forward.

Here are some of the possible options:
– Carnegie Stout Library meeting rooms
– Mines of Spain auditorium
– The River Museum
– University of Dubuque Library meeting rooms

If you have any other location ideas feel free to post them in the comments of this post and we will discuss them at the meeting.

Also, if anyone has some projects to show please bring them! I think the Lacy boardroom has a projector that we can use 🙂

Here are the meeting notes from this past weekend’s GRiFIn meeting…

Library Book Donation / GRiFIn Knowledge Base Project:

  • Tricia Behnke gave a detailed update about how the library donation project is going and asked the group if they had any ideas for donations.
  • Lori Ollendick has some cool books to donate that her daughter is done using.

GRiFIn Logo/Rebranding Project:

  • Watched a video that John Swift put together about the progress being made on the current GRiFIn logo
  • The group made suggestions for refining two of the logos

The Lounge:

  • Josh Dill showed a couple of clips from the final night at the lounge

The Faust:

  • Clint Heiberger showed an intro clip from his short “The Faust”

Also at the meeting, Garrett Schroeder showed some clips of some experimental short movies and animations that he has been working on.

One last thing we talked about is possibly shooting a quick video on a Sunday afternoon using tools in the Maker Space sometime in Mid-February – at the next GRiFIn meeting we will talk more about it!
