The newest club on Samford is already making its presence known by competing in Beta Theta Pi’s Halloween Horror Film Festival this Thursday, October 5.
BEA Club, or the Broadcast Education Association Club, is now active after being on probation for a year, which is the protocol for all new organization on campus.
Donovahn Wyatt, the president of BEA Club at Samford, said, “I’m looking forward to helping this club grow and giving more students the students more opportunities to network and meet with professionals for a variety of broadcast work, whether it be TV, radio, podcasting, sports media, or creative filmmaking– that’s what I’m looking forward to.”
Beta Theta Pi‘s Horror Film Festival is being held this year, aiming to get campus organizations to submit a 7-10 minute film they produced themselves. The event is specifically geared toward Greek organizations, though BEA Club’s participation as a non-Greek organization stands out.
With Halloween around the corner, BEA decided to compete in the competition against Alpha Tau Omega, the Samford Deltas and Chi Omega.
BEA’s film is a psychological thriller called “Deadline.” Nick Hairston, the creator of the film, said, “The movie I made is about a character who struggling to come to grips with reality. He seems to be lost in his own sense of depravity, and he’s really an evil guy.”
“Deadline” is available for viewing at Beta Theta Pi’s Horror Festival this Thursday, October 5, at 7:00pm.
