Radio, Television and Film
Welcome to Spring Semester 2013!
We hope your semester is progressing along nicely. Lots of good things are happening in RTVF. For example:
Congratulations to Dr. Drew Todd who's article, "Marked Woman (1937) and the Dialectics of Art Deco in the Classical Gangster Genre" recently appeared in the peer-reviewed, online journal Film, Fashion & Consumption (1.3, December 2012). For details about this, go to the RTVF Blog at www.sjsu.edu/rtvf
Some RTVF screenwriters also won awards at the Broadcast Education Association competition (we will post the details—with photos—in a few days).
Next week begins the Cinequest Film Festival (www.cinequest.org) to check out the schedule and mark your calendars to attend the event SPOTLIGHT ON SPARTAN FILMS
March 5th, 9:30p.m. at the San Jose Rep (big blue building across the street from campus near the Fairmont Hotel). For more information click here.
Here are some VERY IMPORTANT things you need to do immediately:
1. BOOKMARK THE RTVF BLOG (or set up your digital feeds)
If you have any information you would like posted to the blog or Web site, please email Kimb Massey (Kimb.Massey@sjsu.edu) with the information. Thanks!
2. DECLARE YOUR MAJOR/MINOR
If you are an RTVF major or minor, make sure you have declared your major/minor. Our course schedule (and the number of courses we are allowed to offer) are determined by the number of students we have.
3. SEE YOUR ADVISOR
Dr. Kimb Massey has completed her assignment as Interim Director so she is now available again for advising. And we welcome our newest faculty, Harry Mathias, into the fold.
RTVF Advisors are assigned by the first letter of the student's last name.
4. JOIN THE RTVF GOOGLE EMAIL GROUP
To improve communications, the RTVF PROGRAM has set up an email Google group for RTVF majors/minors. Please join the group for up-to-date information: http://groups.google.com/group/rtvf-info
If you have difficulty joining the group, let Kimb Massey know and she will assist you.
