Is there a Steven Spielberg or Kevin Smith secretly hiding in your soul? Do you harbor a desire to be the next Morgan Spurlock of MLA (minus the french fries and happy meals)? Or do you just like to take videos?
If the answer is yes, then you will want to consider becoming an MLA’12 videographer. Read the post from Medlib-l below and if it sounds like something you would want to do then apply.

Don’t remember what happened at MLA last year? Want to relive the unfettered joy of seeing your library colleagues? Wish that when someone asked, “Have you seen the latest viral video on zombie medical librarians taking over Seattle,” that you could pipe up and say, “That was me! I shot that sweet footage!”
Apply to join the MLA ’12 Official Videographer Team!
Last year, videographers focused on casual conversations in and around the meeting. This year our intrepid videographer team will use their own smart phones to capture on the spot interviews and will focus on all aspects of the conference. Videos will be contributed and vetted, then posted to the members-only MLANet conference site, and after the conference to YouTube. No editing of video will be required, so anybody who can take video on their phone can easily participate! Additionally, AHIP points will be awarded—1 AHIP point/video submitted up to maximum of 3 AHIP points per videographer.
Applications will be accepted until 5 pm ET Friday, April 27, 2012. Official videographers will be announced Wednesday, May 2, 2012. Apply here:

After logging in (have that 2011 badge handy!), select “View Presentations”, then “Posters and Video Shorts”. At the end of the electronic wall you will find the videos from MLA 2011 in Minneapolis.
