Who are the producers of the show?
The Technical Producer for the show is: Rob Ryan email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
How are projects selected for the show?
Space and equipment will be in high demand and it will not be possible to take all submissions, so projects are judged by the following criteria:
- Project is from a class in the current semester
- How well will the project show in this venue. Not too big (space), not too long (time), not too much equipment
- How far along is the project, is it likely to be finished?
- Projects from foundation classes usually do not get in, but are considered at the last minute if space is available
I'm in a group project; who should sign up?
Your group should select a point-person to be the primary contact responsible for the show.
This person should:
- answer all equipment and space questions
- sign up in the online signup, and
- stay with the project through the entire show.
How many projects can I have in the show?
Each student can have one individual project and one group project in the show.
Equipment and Space
- Equipment is dispensed from ITPs resources pulled from the labs, gallery and equipment room. Under ITP Resources Help Page you can find lists of equipment in these areas.
- If you have a special need and you want to communicate the need or problem, email the helpdesk at email@example.com -- Rob can let you know if what you need is feasible
- Equipment is allocated based on your project submission so make sure to add equipment and space requirements by clicking on add/edit equipment in the Projects Database
- Do not use the notes sections to itemize your equipment needs - use those areas for technical and setup notes to the producers
- If you are looking for staging space before the show please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Be long on flexibility and organization and short on entitlement.
- Maintain a sense of humor. No matter what happens, it'll be alright in the end.
- Plan more time than you think you need.
- Keep contact with teachers and staff; things change quickly.
- Get proper sleep, and eat properly.
- Maintain concern for your fellow students, staff and faculty; we'll need each other's support to make the show work. The show is a privilege, not a right. Anyone exhibiting rude behavior during the show process may be removed from the show.
How many projects are there in the show?
As many as the floor can fit. Typically the floor can fit about 70 projects comfortably, 80 if we're stuffed to the gills.
I've got a project that I want to put in the stairwell/lobby/roof/mars. What do I need to do?
The building management staff, who would make that decision, frowns on us putting projects in odd places. We can ask, but your chances are slim. Blocking the stairwells is illegal, for example, and putting things in the elevator blocks traffic and introduces a security risk. If you're planning anything off the floor, talk to the producing faculty before you start, at least one month in advance.
Will there be signs for the projects?
The sign will be located next to your project. It will be made from the information you submit in the online signup, so make sure you fill it out in full. Make any final corrections by Friday April 27.
I want to include my thesis project in the show. What should I do?
Sign up like other projects. Add the venue "Spring Show 2007" to your project. Your project will be considered along with all the other projects submitted. Whether it's accepted or not will not reduce your responsibilities to your thesis class or thesis week.
