Admirers wishing to send unique Valentine’s Day wishes can have a high-tech way to woo their sweethearts.

The film society and the TV club at South Dakota State University are sponsoring a Happy Valentine’s Day home video fundraiser.

Anyone on campus or within the Brookings community can participate, said Zeke Hanson, Film Society Vice President.

Prior to the SDSU Film Festival in April, the Film Society wanted to develop a fundraiser that would get students involved as well as raise money for future projects, said Hanson. Valentine’s Day seemed like a good opportunity to do that.

Through Thursday, Feb. 8, people interested in purchasing a video valentine can visit The Union on campus. There, the two groups will have a display for people to place orders.

Those who wish to make a video valentine will have one minute on camera to deliver their message. Group members will film the valentines and then send them to recipients via e-mail or DVD. The e-mail versions cost $10, and the DVD version costs $15 plus shipping.

The fundraiser marks the first of its kind for the film society, Hanson said.
