Camera rolling... action! The OCC Productions film club was created for students who
have a respect for film and the passion to create them. Whether it's in the pre-production
phase (writing, planning, storyboarding, etc.), the production phase (shooting, lighting,
directing, acting, etc.), or the post production phase (editing, screening, etc.).
Just as important as making films we also screen films and videos for entertainment,
inspiration, and aesthetic awareness.
Jack Cronin - Advisor
This organization serves to establish a bond between the Hispanic/Latinx students,
faculty, and the general community to promote the development of educational opportunities

forum for the open dialogue of political, spiritual, cultural, economic, social and
academic conditions in the Hispanic/Latinx community.
