First AIA Sustainability meeting for 2014‏

A friendly reminder of tomorrow evenings first meeting of 2014 and a little more inspiration for the budding filmmaker within…
 
 
The first AIA sustainability meeting is in one week – Wednesday 12th Feb at 5:30pm
 
This time it’s different:
You will recall we have an exciting new direction for 2014.  Accordingly we need you to be ready for something different at our first meeting.

As you know we will be making short video clips on the topic of sustainability and the built environment through the year. We aim to make three. Their success will be how widely they will be forwarded and we aim for a viral vid.  We aim to elegantly capture an idea and communicate it. For a great overview, have a look at: www.epipheo.com
 
The first sustainability meeting for 2014 is Feb the 12th and at this meeting will be starting our ‘pitches’ – this is where we each get a maximum of two minutes to pitch an idea to the rest of the group about what video we make this year. 
 
How do I pitch?:
There are lots of ways to do this and, in short, there are no rules.
–     you could read a script as though you were a narrator
          you could describe what we would see
          you could write a paragraph of text
          you can present still images/PowerPoint to help structure it
          you could describe the issue with a loose idea & see if the group wants to pursue it
          you can throw minties and promise us all fame and wealth
 
How will we choose?
We are nothing if not democratic, and accordingly we will vote.  Your pitch(es?) idea(s) need to be on the topic of sustainability, to be memorable, to encourage people to forward it and to be do-able.  Too easy!
 
Examples?
there are heaps of examples… many bad, some good.  see the list below
 
What now?

We need everyone to come with a minimum of ONE IDEA, so start thinking + writing down your thoughts.  We will have a laptop available for any e-presentation pitches (bring yr USB).  Bring your best ideas,ready to pitch on Wednesday Feb the 12that 5:30pmatTusculum.

When: Wednesday, 12 February 2014, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Where: Tusculum, 3 Manning Street. Potts Point
