Making Movies On a Deadline

Have you always wanted to get involved in movie production, but haven’t felt like investing millions of dollars and years of your life? Well the Student Film Organization’s 4 Day Film Festival just might be your thing.

On January 20 at 6:30 p.m. the festival will kick off in Carnegie Cinema. Groups of 2 or more will be given the guidelines for the films and will then have the next four days to complete production.

All the films will be shown on Sunday in Carnegie, and the film that most successfully follows the guidelines will get 4 free tickets to the State Theater.

While four days doesn’t seem like a lot of time to make a film, you’d be surprised what the added pressure can do for your creative process.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
