Hello everyone!

We hope you all had a wonderful winter break! For those of you who are abroad, have great time in far off lands, and for those of you returning from abroad, we’re so happy to have you back with us! We have some big things coming up:

Red-Eye Film Festival: This Saturday, January 10th starting at 9:00 AM, we will begin the 24-hour Red Eye Film Festival. You and a group of friends will have 24 hours to write, film and edit a short 10 minute film in a randomly given style. You will likely be given your own camera equipment, but phones will also be sufficient for recording. Here are the rules:
Show up at 9:00 in Runnals Lobby with a group of friends (around 4-6 people). Or, just come alone and find a group when you get there!  This will be your Red Eye team.
You will be given a film genre, a location you must use, a prop you must use, and a quote you must include in the film.
You and your team will spend the next 24 hours writing, recording, and putting together your film. Please, try to keep it around 10 minutes long.
Someone from your team must come into Runnals at 9:00 AM the next morning and turn in your film on a flash drive (they will likely be too big to email to us).
The films will all be shown at 7:00 on Sunday night in Lovejoy 100. Awards and prizes will be given out to all the groups, and we’ll see which group had the best movie!
Tell all your friends about it!

The Vagina Monologues: We are now accepting applications for our production of The Vagina Monologues. To all women: if you would like to participate, please fill out this form and and email it to the board by next Tuesday, January 13, by 6:00 PM. The monologues are very low key. You will all be assigned coaches to work with you, and you will be reading your monologues onstage from index cards. Men (and women), if you would like to be a coach, or want more information on what a coach does, please contact the board by email also by next Tuesday.

The Vagina Monologues are Friday, February 13th. We would also like to get a lot of non-P&W members involved, so try to get all your friends to submit.

Thanks for reading all of that! Have a great Jan Plan!

Love,
Your Board
