Otter Media celebrated Halloween night with Monte Mash, an event filled with pumpkin painting, live music, a costume contest and an original short film screening made by Otter Media. Students from across campus came together as they celebrated into the night by dressing in costumes and by participating in everything the event offered.

Roxy Ortiz, Jake Yu and Jacob Alfaro provided the live music for the event playing original songs, covers of hit rock songs and Halloween-themed music.

The costume contest, hosted by Otter Pride, was voted on by the students in attendance. The third place winner was a three-way tie between two students dressed as a vampire, another as the Bride from Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” series and the final as an Enderman from the videogame “Minecraft.” The spot for third place ultimately came down to a tie-breaking decision that was voted on by how loud the audience cheered and clapped for the individual contestants.

The crowd overwhelmingly voted for the Enderman, taking third place. The second-place winner was a student dressed as Princess Peach from Nintendo’s video game franchise “Mario.” The first-place winner went to a couple who dressed as Juno MacGuff and Paulie Bleeker from the 2007 comedy/drama movie “Juno.”

The original short film made by Otter Media, unfortunately did not play in its entirety because of technical difficulties. However, this did not take away from the overall event according to third-year Otter Media live events coordinator Derek Rasmussen.

“It was honestly fantastic, despite the event having this one hiccup. You just have to be able to roll with the punches. We had a great turnout, a lot of really fun friendly familiar faces and great people came out. We were pretty proud and satisfied with the turnout and it was fun,” said Rasmussen. “It was also my birthday celebration, so I couldn’t ask for anything better.”
The original short film can be found on Otter Media’s YouTube channel [ottermedia] under the video titled Tales Of Slaughtermedia.
