As Chair, I am the first port of call for liaising with the Student's Union and the committee. I chair our regular meetings, and generally keep an eye on what everyone in the committee is doing. My main responsibility is to lead the team, support everyone and ensure Film Unit is moving in the right direction
I am responsible for any financial aspects of the Film Unit, such as monitoring the budget. Essentially Smaug guarding the Film Unit gold hoard
I ensure that Film Unit is accessible for anyone and also plan socials for members to help build a sense of community within the volunteers
Along with Jon, it's my job to make sure we always have front of house staff for the screenings - without them, we can't run the films! We do everything from recruitment, to training, to writing references (I love a bit of admin!)
Sharing duties with Sukayna, it's my role to recruit individuals, make sure all screenings are covered by staff and to oversee training. We do some admin, including log sheets and references, as well as organise Give It A Go sessions throughout the year
The aim is to make sure every screening is kept to the highest standards to ensure the best viewing experience for the audience. This involves making sure there is someone to project every screening, preparing every movie for screening and dealing with problems that affect the projector
It's my job to ensure all showings (including special showings) have a person allocated to them, and are run smoothly. Also entails keeping everyone updated with any changes to the cinema
In charge of organising trailers for upcoming films (sourcing and editing), coordinate ads, making sure they are in place, responsible for DCPing slides and trailers
Ensuring Film Unit gets publicity!
I make lots of Facebook posts
Along with Kaitlyn and Liam, I make sure that Film Unit is well-advertised by various means, including social media and flyering.
I will be organising film unit events such as Eurovision, a special horror movie screening on Halloween and lots of other exciting things!
I help make sure all people outside of uni can be involved in Film Unit too!
