What to do with that Super 8 footage of the Gasson takeover
Boston College has commissioned a filmmaker to create a documentary history of the University.
To prepare for this project, the University is seeking footage in any format—film, videotape, or digital file—that captures campus life.
If you have footage you think might be of interest to the filmmakers, please contact Boston College media producer Brock Dilworth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether used in the film or not, material accepted for the project will be copied for preservation in the University Archives, and the originals returned to the donor.
