The judges for the 2011 competition were:
- Janie Wong, Senior Bio Major and President of SUMO, appreciates movies. People often mistake her for a CAMS major, but she would like to reassure everyone once and for all that she is not, even though she may dress like one from time to time. Her favorite movies include: Pan's Labyrinth, Rushmore, Big Fish, Up, and The Phantom of the Opera. If Janie were to play a character in any movie, she would be a villain in a James Bond film.
- Daisuke Kawachi, Senior CAMS Major, is currently tearing his hair out as he writes his comps. He is also in the process of directing Macbeth, a Theater comps that will go up Sixth Week Spring Term in the Weitz Theater. Daisuke gave up nothing for Lent.
- Paul Bernhardt, CAMS Technical Director and Weitz Center Audio and Visual Technical Director, was discovered hiding in the postal cart used by Raoul Cotard during location shooting for À bout de soufflé. He returned to Germany to write Kritik der Wissenschaft des Punktum, then moved to Los Angeles, where he went on to earn an Oscar nomination for his work on Forrest Gump.
- Jhernie Evangelista, Sophomore CAMS Major, came to Carleton from Hawaii so she could play in some snow. She loves movies for their creative narratives and depictions of complex human emotions. Jhernie once watched “In the Mood For Love” three times in one night and cried through each one. She can recite nearly every line in each F.R.I.E.N.D.S episode and many have applauded her impersonations of Chandler Bing.
- Joe Baggot, Associate Dean, came to Carleton in 2005 with hopes of one day judging the Golden Schillers film festival. Although his hometown was too small to support a movie theater, Joe has fond memories of films he watched as a young boy, such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The last film Joe saw in theaters was The Hobbit, and most recently rented the rock documentary It Might Get Loud. Joe says: “the technical aspects of film escape me; but I like stories.”
