Cinema Supercollider V-Fest

As our listeners know, we love us some bad movies.  One of our favorite things to do every year is go to B-Fest, a 24-hour film festival that shows b-movies and cult films at Northwestern University. One of our other favorite things to do is host livetweet events for our listeners where we watch a “virtual screening” of a movie and riff it, 140 characters at a time.  So we’ve put together our very own virtual film fest chock full of all the best badness we can stream for free on the internet.

HOW TO WATCH V-FEST
THINGS YOU NEED:  Something you can watch YouTube videos on, a time piece of some sort to synch up with the schedule, and a device with Twitter on it
THINGS YOU MAY WANT:  Snacks, comfy loungewear, booze, friends, caffeine laden drinks, GrubHub account

You have two options on how to watch V-Fest.  Choose how you will be watching and then go to the corresponding set of instructions.  If you have questions about how things work, just email us and we can help clarify things.

OPTION 1:  I’M WATCHING THE WHOLE (OR MOST OF THE) THING START TO FINISH
Great!  Here’s what to do:
1.  Open YouTube on your device of choice and locate the Cinema Supercollider V-Fest playlist.  Click here for a direct link to the full playlist.  If you are using a device that can’t click the link, enter “Cinema Supercollider V-Fest 2017” into the search field of YouTube to locate the playlist. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND SAVING THE PLAYLIST TO YOUR CHANNEL LIBRARY SO IT IS EASY TO FIND ON THE 6TH. The icon to do this appears at the top of the playlist page, it looks like a few horizontal lines with a plus sign.
2.  Make sure that “autoplay” is activated on your YouTube app.  This is what will advance you automatically from video to video in the playlist.
3.  At 1pm Central Time on May 6th, start the playlist at the first video, “Tammy and the T-Rex”.
**3B** If you will start watching the festival at some time after the first movie, follow the same steps 1 and 2.  Instead of starting at the first video of the playlist, find the movie scheduled closest to the time you wish to join in on the list of videos in the playlist (schedule is posted below).  At the scheduled time for that movie, start playing that video in the playlist.
4.  Once the video has played, it will advance you to the next item on the playlist until there are no more movies to watch.
5.  If you would like to livetweet or watch the livetweet on Twitter while the festival is going on, use or follow the #cscmovie hashtag. (It stands for CinemaSuperColliderMovie)

OPTION 2: I’M WATCHING SOME OF THIS THING BUT NOT ALL OF IT
Great!  Here’s what to do:
1.  Open YouTube on your device of choice.
2.  Check the movie schedule listed below on this page for the start time of the movie you’d like to watch. Each film in the schedule has a direct link to the corresponding video.
3.  At the start time of the movie you want to watch, push play on the corresponding video.
4.  If you would like to watch additional movies on the schedule, repeat steps 2 and 3.
5.  If you would like to livetweet or watch the livetweet on Twitter while the festival is going on, use or follow the #cscmovie hashtag. (It stands for CinemaSuperColliderMovie)

PLEASE NOTE:  We’ve programmed in some weird videos during the breaks between movies on the playlist for your enjoyment in case you don’t want to get up and stretch or whatever in between films. Their run time is almost as long as the full break time, but we left about a minute or so of padding because YouTube likes to show you 15 second advertisements sometimes. If the break videos run out before the exact time to start the next movie, just hit pause on the playlist until it catches up to the schedule.

I HAVE QUESTIONS
Hopefully, we have answers.  Email us with any specific questions about the festival or for clarification on how things work.  We want you to have fun and enjoy a full day of movies with us!
