The APOGEE English Press caught up with Saranya, the coordinator of MATRIX (the club of film and literature enthusiasts), for a chat on the usual – their upcoming events and views on APOGEE 2012.
This time around, Matrix will be conducting 3 events during APOGEE:
How It Should Have Ended :
This is an online event in which the participants will be allowed to give alternative endings to famous books and movies like Harry Potter and Inception. 5 movies, 5 books and one TV series will be given for the participants to choose from. One can enjoy the feeling of being in the shoes of their favourite authors and directors.
Comic Writing :
We all spends hours on 9gag. Matrix gives us an opportunity to use all that experience by conducting a comic writing contest. To all the witty folks out there don’t let this one pass.
Mythology Quiz :
A traditional quiz among the plethora of quizzes that is conducted every APOGEE, ‘Mythology quiz’ has carved out a niche for itself over the years. Owing to its theme and the quality of questions, every year it is a crowd-puller. Matrix promises not to disappoint this time around either.
A satisfied coordinator, Saranya said that she was quite happy with the enthusiasm shown and that work was progressing as planned. She was pleased with her workforce of about 30 people (of whom 15 are first-yearites), and claimed that every one of them was contributing to make their events a grand success. She also had no complaints what so ever about the budget granted to them. In fact she was quick to point out that it was more than sufficient since they were conducting only three events.
Saranya is confident of a successful APOGEE though there are a lot of concerns regarding this year’s fest, mainly due to the construction work going on in the campus. She believes that the quality of events will either remain the same or go a notch higher this time around and it’s only the logistics one has to worry about. She signed off by urging all the BITSians to attend as many events as possible.
