UM students make independent film

Independently written and produced by University of Miami students, Tiger Radio is a comedy about Mike, a college student aspiring to make it big as a radio personality but lacking the motivation.

Through a comedic chain of events, Mike’s outrageous roommates manage to give Mike the opportunity he needs to put his dreams in motion.

Quantum, the university’s film organization, has provided $500 for materials to finish the film after the producers of the film pitched multiple proposals to the organization.

Mike Menendez, writer and actor; Ryan Ondriezek, executive producer and co-director; Andrew Murphy, line producer; and Anthony Behn, co-director and director of photography have been working on the film and shot the final sequences this past weekend.

The film is scheduled to air at the Cosford Cinema on Nov. 24.

Dance Marathon fundraiser

Dance Marathon, a student-organized philanthropy committed to raising money and awareness for the kids and families of Miami Children’s Hospital, is teaming with California Pizza Kitchen to raise money.

This Tuesday, 20 percent of the proceeds from the restaurant will go to Miami Children’s Hospital when students bring the flier advertising the event located around campus.

California Pizza Kitchen is at 300 Miracle Mile.

Segway Charity Ride

This Thursday, the University of Miami Police are offering a five minute ride and one-on-one instruction on riding a UMPD Segway for a donation of $5 or more.

UM police is giving all proceeds to the United Way, an organization that focuses its resources on things people need most such as education, healthcare and financial sustainability.

The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the University Green, between Richter Library and the University Center.

Students, faculty and staff are all welcome to participate.

‘Horny’ live game show

“Do I make you horny?” an MTV-style live game show is coming to Miami this November and December and University of Miami students can get in on the action.

The OOPS GUYS Comedy Troupe, an internationally-acclaimed sketch/improv duo from New York City have toured the country as well as abroad and are now coming to South Florida.

The comedians are known for their riotously ribald comedy shows and, this time, UM students can be a part of it all. Contestants are chosen from the audience each night.

The OOPS GUYS Comedy Troupe will be at the Just the Funny Theater located at 3119 Coral Way and shows will be every Friday and Saturday from Nov. 7-Dec. 27 at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available online at www.hornygameshow.com or at the door.
