Renn Fayre - How It Was At Olde Reed

"Give Up Steam" is a short film by Dan Levin exploring the tradition (or "tradition") of Renn Fayre, the weekend of debauchery that marks the end of every academic year at Reed College. The footage dates to Renn Fayre of 1990, so while I was not yet a senior, I was somewhere in the vicinity though not, apparently, within camera range.

I definitely remember lots of the faces, the Doyle Owl's many dramatic appearances that year, and above all, the terrifying stolen Ronald McDonald figure perched in a tree.
