Hey! I forgot to tell you that this whole thing is being run by humans, not by a faceless corporation or a weird robot. Say hello to the CFC staff! Not only are we nice and stuff, but we’ll help you make your movies. Remember to enter the challenge so you can meet us all at orientation on April 9th. See you there!
