just a couple of things to take care of (preferably) asap:
a) if you have not sent me your Banner ID number, please do so by the end of this weekend so that we can get you the required course overrides.
b) if you have not yet registered for this blog, please do so asap by going to watsonblogs.org/signup/class and follow the instructions there.
c) courtesy of Phil Gara, we will be offering two fantastic nights of Final-Cut Pro tutorials. these are not required, but are highly recommended... particularly if you plan on doing any videoblogging, etc. the dates for those are: Thurs. Feb 7 after 6pm and Tues. Feb 12 after 6:30pm. each session should last around an hour. we will update as we learn of final locations and other details. but any questions about the FCP labs should be directed to phil at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
d) if you still have to complete the entry assignment, copies of the Roland Barthes essay are sitting in office 205 at the Watson Institute (111 Thayer)
e) screenings: it seemed like a lot of people are unable to make the proposed Tues. 3:30-5:30 screening time. while we will hopefully have most (if not all) of the films available online for you (more updates on that in the future), we'd also like to have group screenings. I know classes run until 3:50 on Tuesdays--would a 4pm start time make it easier for people to attend? in the comments below, please let us know what times work for you.
f) if you'd like to receive a kind of "digest" for the blog, please sign up on the right side of the screen under "Notify Me." it will send you a fairly regular email containing all of the latest blog posts. again, however, we encourage all of you to check the blog frequently for updates, changes and reminders.
thanks and have a great weekend,
