Hey Mon! Volunteers Needed!

Sunday night, April 18 from 6-10:30 pm at the Austin Reggae Festival at Auditorium Shores benefiting the Capital Area Food Bank. We added an extra night this year, and it’s impacted the number of folks we need. Responsibilities include manning the entry/exit gates, backstage area, information booth, etc.

Folks can sign up by going to http://www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/58-6221066681 and registering for our activity, or email me at volunteeraustin@gmail.com for additional info.

This event is one of the largest fundraisers for the Food Bank. Anyone volunteering at least two shifts over the weekend (also need help Saturday PM shift) or even just the Sunday PM shift gets a free tshirt, snacks, and the chance to hear some really great music!

We will also be having a volunteer appreciation party in May, so please help if you can!!

Final VideoCamp Austin madness….

Whew! It took a ton of volunteers and hard work to get to this point but we are ready for VideoCamp Austin in less than 24 hours! Here is the final roundup and how to get there tomm. Please Note: We are completly Sold Out at 250 people.

Hey Campers,

I just wanted to make sure you had these details in case you haven’t been following the blog, twitter, or facebook feeds. If you have any questions, please ping me at tal.boyd@gmail.com or me at david@lightscamerahelp.org

VideoCamp depends on your participation:

We want you to speak. Video people talk about video, marketing people share your marketing knowledge…. If you decide to speak at VideoCamp, please arrive a little early and put your name and topic on the big board. Did I mention we want to hear what you have to say?

We start at 10:00 AM. Sessions begin at 10:30 and run 50 minutes each. Bring your laptop or presentation on a USB. Prizes and wrap up begin at 3:30. We’re done at 4pm.

We have wireless:

But please do not download bittorrents or music – the university will pull the plug. The University has strict rules on downloading content and we want to respect them.

On a Saturday, parking at all the standard city meters will be free, however Orange meters on campus are owned by UT and require payment 24/7, so avoid those at all costs. They also only allow for 45 minute parking.

Past that, there is a pay lot and several pay garages around, they will be 10 dollars for a whole day, and West Campus surface street parking as well is available.

Big Prizes:

We’ll be giving away some really cool stuff. You’ve got to stick around till 3:30 to get it.

- 5 copies of Get Seen by Steve Garfield

- 3 Kodak Zx1’s

- 400 feet of Kodak 7201 film.

- The Acton MBA will have loads of schwag for you too.

Volunteer for a ticket:

Got a friend who wants to come but missed the deadline? Have them volunteer. We’d love to have you help out with video and general administrative work. Shoot Weston a line at bigmanweston@reelsocialmedia.com
