It's that time of year again! Go check out the Kickstarter site for the Film School MFA Thesis fundraiser. They did this last year with pretty good success. Their goal this year is to raise $18,500 to help fund the thesis films for the film school students. These films are vitally important and act as a student's "calling card" when applying for jobs. They also serve as great publicity for FSU in the film/public relations community. There is a great video made by the students that explains it all on the site.
They have to raise all this money by January 26th or they get $0...nada...zip (those are the rules for Kickstarter).
