There will be schedule changes all week, before you go to your assigned venue, check in at the Boulder Theatre first. (If you go to the St. Julien Hotel, they may not know who you are and if they do, they will send you to the Boulder Theatre.)
We Need Help on Thursday Morning for Load In – We could use some help on Thursday loading and unloading gear and getting the production office set up at the Boulder Theater.
We Need a Thursday Morning Production Crew – Do you want to have the first video out there? We need a small crew to shoot some of the set up and advance the festival before things get underway. One crew member is also helping with the event set up, but could use some production assistance.
We Need Editing Stations – We’ll provide two MacBook Pros with Final Cut Pro 7. Bring your laptop editing systems if you use others.
Updated NewsTeam Schedule – The crew calls will be posted here and updated as changes occur.
If you’d like to be a part of the BIFF that is largely unseen and very interesting, behind the scenes experience inquire within! For the most part, you do need to have particular expertise and experience with news, but we can always use more Production Assistants willing to learn by observation and diving into a project.
Our BCM reporter was on the red carpet with Oliver Stone.
The schedule won’t be released until later in February, but we’re getting the word out so you can make plans around classes, work, and other commitments. Check out the BIFF News Team Production Call facebook page to keep up with the latest information.
BCM uses a “transmedia” approach where we produce news in a variety of forms:
Editors – copy editors and video editors
Writers – news gathers to go along to events
Still Photographers – for all activities
Video Photographers – for all activities
Producers – if you want to produce, you should also have at least one other skill, have at a minimum a still camera and a strong back to schlepp gear.
Social media – update facebook pages, tweet pix and experiences
Website updates and maintenance
BCM generally runs at least two crews at any given moment, which means each crew has a producer, a video camera operator, a still camera operator a reporter on camera and a reporter off camera. In most cases, our news crews will be the only ones covering these events, many are newsworthy and your stories, images and video will be pushed out to the wire.
BCM will provide video cameras and tape for field work. BCM will have a MacBook Pro with Final Cut 7 available. We are inventorying assets and also let me know what kind of equipment you may be able to provide:
* video cameras etc. (they can be solid state and consumer grade, tripods, lights)
* still cameras (pocket cameras to DSLR cameras – do they have video capabilities)
* lap top computers (pc or mac and editing systems – Premiere, iMovie, FCP, movie maker)

Boulder Community Media (BCM) and GoPro Cameras are presenting a 48-hour 3D filmmaking contest in conjunction with the Boulder International Film Festival Feb 16 – 19. Teams will be using the new 3D fixed-lens camera system and the Cinemark 3D editing software.
BCM seeks 10 teams who will be issued equipment and an editing software orientation prior to producing a 90-second movie. The best film will win a GoPro Hero camera and the top three will be looped on a 3D TV and viewable with RealD passive glasses at the Boulder Theater on Sunday February 19th.
