Hamptons International Film Festival

This weekend we will be volunteering at the Hamptons International Film Festival in East Hampton. If your application was sent in early enough you should've received a phone call but I'll post up a note tomorrow for any students who are unsure if they were accepted or not. The big film this year is the premiere of Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus which is Heath Ledger's final film which has Heath, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law all playing the same role (due to his death). Remember to dress appropriately and enjoy the films! I'll see you out there (I'm sure you can find me at Starbucks on Main Street if I'm not around).

* An update to any of my students who are waiting to hear about volunteering out there- last I heard is that they are full so if you didn't receive a phonecall there is likely no room- if you are going to head out and give it a try anyway I suggest buying some film tickets in advance so you can at least grab a seat for a film and try to make the Master Cinematography class which is free and open to the public.
