The University Police have been informed that an unknown person is videotaping females while walking on Campus without their knowledge. This in itself is not a Crime if you are in Public property, however it is still not known if any of the videos show inappropriate images of the person that is being followed. Some of the video images have been posted on various websites. The UCF Police is asking anyone with information or feel they are a victim of a voyeuristic act to contact the Police at (407) 823-5555. We are also asking anyone who sees anything suspicions in nature to contact the Police immediately.

Christopher Harris’s films still/here (2000) and Reckless Eyeballing (2004) employ formal abstraction in order to explore the intersection of history and memory in ways that unravel conventional tropes of race and identity. A powerfully melancholy film about the blighted cityscape of St. Louis’s north side, still/here articulates the disturbing relationships of people with place. Reckless Eyeballing (2004), a short film using recycled images from The Birth of a Nation, Black action heroine Pam Grier, and ‘60s activist Angela Davis, unravels long-standing narrative tropes of the outlawed Black body and its threatening gaze.
Exhibited internationally at festivals and cinémathèques throughout North America and Europe, including Rotterdam, Vienna, Paris, and Berlin, Harris's experimental work has been the subject of scholarly inquiry and is included in the permanent collection of the Film Study Center at Yale University. Harris is Associate Professor of Cinema Studies at the University of Central Florida, where he teaches experimental film, film theory, and Black Cinema.
Monday, February 25 8:00 p.m., Cole Cinema
still/here, Reckless Eyeballing
Free and open to the public

The screening happens February 22-28, 2008 at the Premier Cinema 14 at the Fashion Square Mall. Lloyd is expected to be there on Friday and Saturday (maybe Sunday also). If you've never had a chance to hang with Lloyd, I highly recommend it. He's not only hilarious, but he's also been successful for more than three decades thumbing his nose at the power elite of Hollywood. He's got a lot to say about everything.
Lloyd will also be doing a book signing at Coliseum Comics and presenting one of his "Make Your Own Damn Movie" master classes at Full Sail. The master class is on Monday, Feb. 25 at Full Sail.
For any Troma fan who can't make the in person, stuff, catch the flick at these times:

The Doorpost Film Project is a contest for short films that has already begun and will culminate with a September 10-13 finalist film screening in Nashville. We're offering a grand prize package of $100,000 (USD) and an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles for the winner to meet with film developers and other industry professionals. The second place winner will receive $30,000 (USD) and the third place winner will receive $20,000 (USD). The grand prize is the largest ever for an online-based short film contest, making the Doorpost an unprecedented opportunity for filmmakers.
The Doorpost was created to recognize, honor and equip emerging filmmakers whose work explores themes central to life, its struggles and its ultimate purpose. We believe that there is profound meaning in the things we say and do, and that the human imagination comes from somewhere beyond our reason. It’s our desire to meet your needs as a filmmaker and see your imagination at work in film that opens hearts to possibility, wonder and truth – without resorting to common, formulaic expressions that only aim to manipulate emotions. So we’re giving you a canvas – bring the paint and show us what life looks like.
The Doorpost Film Project - unique.creative.you. www.thedoorpost.com
BTW - be sure to read the rules of Doorpost carefully. As far as I can tell, they require World Premier status for your short and if you win the first round, they require you to sign assign them all copyrights for your film.
A total of over $5,000.00 in judged awards will be presented in 11 categories including Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Animation, Best Short, Best Documentary, Best Cinematography, Best Student Film, Best Non-English Film, Best Comedy/Farce, and Best Film About Amelia Island or of Local Interest to Northeast Florida & Southeast Georgia.
Go to www.AmeliaIslandFilmFestival.org to download the application. The festival will take place from September 25, 2008 until October 1, 2008.
