About Us

The CMU Filmmaking Club, founded in 1994, is a student organization of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. The mission of the organization is to produce and promote student filmmaking, both at Carnegie Mellon and in the greater community. Each semester, the club generally produces at least one short film or video project, which utilizes the technical and creative abilities of its members. There is also usually at least one “improv” shoot at the beginning of each semester, where small teams work to create a short narrative video in a few hours; this activity allows new members to get acquainted with the basics of our equipment and is always a lot of fun.

Jeremy Wheeler & Jordan Sucher (Co-Presidents)

Chris Compendio (Vice President)

Max Harlynking (Shot for Shot Festival Coordinator)

Suvrath Penmetcha (Fundraising Chair)

A note about CMU TV: We share an office on Margaret Morrison street with our friends from CMU TV. However, we are unaffiliated. The main difference between our two clubs is that CMU TV is purely about documenting full events such as concerts or meetings, and Film Club makes films, shorts, promos, music videos, etc.
