the most frequently asked question concerning the
I.F.V.C. is whether or not we have access to production
equipment. Yes...and no.
I.F.V.C. is not directly affiliated with any one university
department and therefore does not have access to departmental
equipment. However, being a group of individuals interested
in film and video, many of us own personal cameras,
tripods, lights, etc.
we are friendly with the folks and facilities at WYOU
(public access cable channel 4) where both production
and post-production equipment can be found. In addition
to WYOU's post-production facilities, all UW students
have access to a some frightfully underutilized computer
editing tools housed in the second floor computer
lab of the H.C. White Library.
a passionate and poor student group, our strength
lies in pre-production since the creation of ideas
remains relatively affordable and incredibly valuable.
We get an idea on the table and then pool together,
rustle up, and chase down the necessary material resources.
Film and video production is a primary goal of the
I.F.V.C. - it simply requires a fair amount of low-cost
- (Spring 2000) a four minute, 8mm short film.
- (Spring 2001) an 8mm short, currently in production.
