Several years ago, the NCECA board began asking the membership how we, as an organization, should commemorate our 50th anniversary. Subsequently, for the last two years, we have had multiple task forces exploring and developing the most popular ideas. One of the projects in development a video project, which has taken the form of a series of sequential videos unfolding the marvelous story of our organization.
Last year during the conference, we began pre-production of this project, by capturing conference footage, video interviews, conversations, exhibitions and more. (We even used some of the captured footage to put together a short “commercial” for our conference…check it out below!)
We are excited to announce that we will be conducting additional group interviews this year. We are looking for folks from all areas of our membership, whether you are a first time attendee, or if you’ve been coming since 1966, and whether you are a professor, student, studio potter, part time potter, administrator, manufacturer, supplier, publisher, gallery owner, K-12 teacher, retired individual, or anything I forgot to list. We are interested in hearing YOUR NCECA story – when you joined, why you joined, why you come to the conference, what NCECA membership means to you, what your favorite memories of NCECA are and so on. Interested? Interviews will be done in groups of three. So find a couple of friends (or let us match you up with other members) then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re interested!
Want to be even MORE involved in this project? NCECA is also looking for a producer/creative director. Details are included in this Video Producer Call PDF.
