Dear Volunteer,
Thank you for agreeing to serve as a judge for our 4th annual expedition. Below are the judging steps you will

and assess their work. Here are the recommended times:
1. Read the article(s) for the group(s) you are assigned to judge. Read it prior to coming to the judging
session in order to know what the students are writing about.
2. Send any questions to Mont Cooper at
ecooper@ccpcs.org
if something doesnt make sense or you need
something clarified.
3. Though the rubric is in whole numbers, you can give a score that contains a .5 or .75 (ex: 1.75, 3.5, 2).
DURING Wednesday, Feb. 4 | Judging Times (20 min.)
7-10 min.
in conversation with the students and judging photo essay

ofChristopherNolan:

Although many of
Christopher Nolans
movies happen simultaneously in the past, present and
future, he almost never works on weekends. He made an exception, though, on a Saturday early this
fall, while he was in New York on the sort of errand almost no director takes up, or has to take up,
these days:
Nolan
was visiting theaters to make sure they were properly prepared to project his new
movie, Interstellar. The final cut of the movie had been delivered, as is characteristic for him, ahead
of schedule, back in June, and he was rapidly running out of tasks within his control before the
premiere.
In an industry where status means not having to care about the value of other peoples time,
Nolan
never keeps anybody waiting. At 10 a.m. sharp, he was greeted at the Bow Tie Cinema on 23rd Street
in Chelsea by
Adam Cole
, who had flown over from Los Angeles with the film print, which had its
own ticket.
Cole
, who has been
Nolans
postproduction coordinator for the last two films, had been
there since 7 in the morning.
