Alyssa Woolard
Senior, President,
Hi everyone! I’m Alyssa, and I’ll be the SCG President for this year. My focus is Narrative Filmmaking and Creative Industry Management, with aspirations of becoming a producer. Outside of Student Cinema Guild, I’m involved with Theta Nu Xi, the Multicultural Greek Council, and Kelley Learning Media. Going into my third year as an officer of this club, I hope to bring my past expertise and merge them with this team’s new ideas!

Samantha Gee
Senior, Secretary, 

My name is Samantha Gee and I’m a senior here at IU. I study Cinema Arts and Media Production, with a focus on narrative filmmaking. I’m also pursuing a minor in creative writing! Though my goal has always been to hone my skills in storytelling, I’ve discovered interests in cognitive science, Jewish history and figurative pottery through my time at IU. This year, I hope I am able to foster even more creatively educational experiences as the Student Cinema Guild’s secretary!

Max Weger
Senior, Treasurer, 

I’m a senior at the Kelley School of Business majoring in Finance and Supply Chain Management. I’ve been involved in the Cinema Guild for 2 years, this year proudly serving as Treasurer of the club. I worked for the Learning Media team for 3 years in Kelley, and have been working with video for an additional 2. I am excited to help in the production this year!

Sam Wichhart
Sophomore, Equipment Manager,

Hello! My name is Sam Wichhart, I’m a sophomore at IU and an Advertising major with a minor in Narrative Filmmaking.
