    Bright Family Screening Room

    Directed by George Miller, narrative (sci-fi/action), US, 120 min, 2015, DCP.

Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa is a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Faculty-led discussion to follow.

  • Bright Lights: BOSCPUG Filming MAD MAX: FURY ROAD with Michelle Pizanis AC

    9/10/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Get out to meet & mingle with fellow filmmakers in the Bright. Enjoy a great night of networking, engaging screenings & conversation: swap stories and business cards, discover talent and crew for your next project, and interact with members of Boston's Production and Post community.

    Then, join us for an industry reception featuring Refreshments + Networking next door at SALVATORE'S.

    Michelle started her career in film after 11 years as a successful stills photographer. On Mad Max: Fury Road, Michelle was the camera coordinating AC, working with Academy Award winning DP John Seale. While shooting a number of scenes in Sydney, Australia, Michelle and John used Blackmagic Cinema Cameras EF for some of the film's key scenes, including an exciting escape scene and a large, climatic action sequence involving exploding trucks and cinematic mayhem. The scenes were shot in RAW, which allowed the team to capture as much detail as possible within each shot, giving the VFX artists a huge amount of data to work with.

    We're thrilled to have Michelle with us for a special conversation on filming with Blackmagic Design Cameras on Mad Max: Fury Road, her role in working with DP John Seale on the film, and her experiences in working in the industry.

  • Emerson College Police Bike Lock Give Away

    9/11/15
    12:00 am - 5:00 pm
    Little Building
    Police Department

    The Emerson College Police Department will be giving away Bike U locks!!

    Emerson College Police has identified that the majority of bicycles that are stolen from campus are either not secured or are secured by an easily defeated chain or cable style lock. When used properly, a "U" style lock can dramatically decrease the risk of bicycle theft. Bike theft continues to be an issue on and around campus, and we need your help to deter thieves. Don't become a target. Lock up your bike with a high-quality U-lock. They are more difficult to defeat than cable locks. In the 2014 fall semester there were 5 documented thefts of bicycles from Emerson Community members.

    This week, we will be awarding multiple Kryptonite/OnGuard U-locks.

    Check out the Emerson College Police social media pages where we offer crime alerts, crime prevention tips and other safety information you should know.

    How to win:

    • Facebook/Emerson College Police Department: Leave a comment on our U-lock giveaway post describing why bike theft prevention is important to you.
    • Twitter/Emerson Police Department: Send a tweet describing why bike theft prevention is important to you.
    • The contest will run from August 31, 2015 thru September 11, 2015 at 5:00 pm. We'll select random winners from both Facebook and Twitter, and award the locks the following week. You must be a current Emerson Community member to be eligible.
    • Don't forget to register your bike with your local police department. If it's stolen and later located anywhere in the United States, you'll have a better chance of it being returned to you.

    Useful hints:

    • Lock your bike to an authorized bike rack.
    • Consider using two locks to lock both the front wheel and frame, and rear wheel and frame.
    • Keep a copy of your bikes serial number and take a picture of the bike
    • Hide your name and contact information inside the bikes frame.
    • Take your seat with you when you leave.

    This event is not open to the public.

  • Advanced Screening of SUFFRAGETTE (Emerson Community only)

    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Seating on a first come basis. Doors open at 6:30.

    This is a drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality—their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

    This event is not open to the public.
