MEAL BOX MADNESS! (ORIGINAL GC VIDEO)

MEAL BOX MADNESS! (ORIGINAL GC VIDEO)
When we know we're going to miss Green College's sit-down dinner, we sign up for a meal box. The trouble is: there are far more of us than there are of them. And when communal resources get scarce, people get crazy.

The unassuming meal box has become somewhat of a cultural artifact here at Green College. Yes, it's basically just a container, but it holds one of the most valuable things for us residents: good food we didn't have to make.

Here's the skinny: when we know we're going to miss the sit-down dinner, we sign up for one of these specially designed sterile containers.

The trouble is: there are far more of us than there are of them.

You can see why a hungry greenie would get more than a little frustrated when others don't return their boxes right away. When communal resources get scarce, people get crazy.

For this video (which was created for last year's final gala) I thought it’d be fun to imagine what  happens to the communal boxes while in the possession of others.

(Plus, I heard rumours that the things are indestructible ... and who wouldn't want to test that?)

A very special thanks to Lewis Kelly, who did the final round of edits!
(Hence the fishy picture of me at the end of the video.)

Great Video about the Dinner Boxes--things that we did not offer back when the Dining Society first began. I enjoyed the way the video brought the college to life. It's still gorgeous!
