SIGGRAPH / Flash Indianpolis Collaboration Meeting


I hope your summers went well! This semester is starting off with a bang! If you remember briefly about a project I mentioned at the beginning of summer, I was working on a non-for profit / Indiana design competition website with the President of Flash Indianapolis Mark Grossnickle.

We would like to have a dual-group open forum next week on the 27th to go over our vision, ideas, and get input from both groups as we move forward. Whatever is decided, Mark and I will take the brundt of the responsibilities to get this thing moving forward and will hopefully be working with a CGT 411 capstone team or New media group of students to see it through fruition. We would like all of your feedback and talk to those of you that would like to help further!

The meeting is next Thursday evening 6:00-7:00p.m. in Campus Center CE 268.

Things we would like to go over:

- Competition name
- How often will the competition occur? (Yearly, Semester-ly, Monthly, etc)
- Will it cost money to enter or Sponsored by Gifts?
- Will we categorize the competition (by discipline, experience, team vs solo) or will we lump it into one big group?
- Will it be themed? Mad-Lib style for Humor or Driven by a Purpose?

We will also be discussing a possible Microsite, branding/logo ideas, and requesting help with recruitment and PR.

We will go out to eat/drink afterwords! I hope to see all of you there!

All the best,
