I'm working here through EPIK (http://www.epik.go.kr), the Korean government's program for recruiting native-speaking English teachers for Korean public schools. The school year runs from February to February here, so the students are currently preparing for final exams as I prepare for winter camps and my return to the US in about three months. Overall it's been a wonderful experience teaching here (and don't let any recent grumpy Facebook posts dissuade you from that). My school is top-notch and has been very kind and supportive, I've met a lot of great people from around the world, and being able to help out so many ambitious young students every day (and even the unambitious ones) has been incredibly rewarding. All that, plus I've had some amazing experiences traveling around East and Southeast Asia during school breaks. And I had a great brunch the other day with film school alums Sun-kyu Park, Soo Jin Hwang and Su Kim. My only regret is that I didn't look into a teaching job like this sooner - maybe I could have paid down some of those pesky student loans and saved up a little more money before trying my luck in LA the first time. That said, after three years it's definitely time to come and give life in the USA another shot. Hopefully I've got enough stories and experiences stored up to get the creative juices flowing again. By the way, if anybody out there is working in entertainment in an accounting, finance, tax or statistical capacity, I'd love to talk to you.  I did some coursework while I was here and I'd really like to know more about what type of positions related to entertainment in those fields are out there. You can email me at wstuckw@live.com if you have some time to chat. From Matt Beans (MFA 05)  “I am very pleased to announce that the Robot Chicken team (and I with them) was nominated for an Annie Award this morning.” From Lauren Morelli (BFA  08)  “I am so excited that a feature called "Afternoon Delight" that I costume supervised this summer has been accepted for competition at Sundance in the US Dramatic Category! In this sexy, dark comedy, a lost L.A. housewife puts her idyllic hipster life in jeopardy when she tries to rescue a stripper by taking her in as a live-in nanny. (Director and screenwriter: Jill Soloway) Cast: Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jane Lynch. I am looking to go, so if any other alums are heading out, please let me know, and please check out our beautiful film! Also, a new tv show that I set costumed began airing in October called "Mash Up." http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/mash-up. If you're up at 12:30 am on a Tuesday night, check it out on Comedy Central. It's absolutely hilarious. For now, I have just started season 3 of "After Lately" with Chelsea Handler and am having a blast. Hope everyone has a great holiday! This could be called the Andrew Hevia (BFA 06) edition of the Warren Report!  He’s got great things to share: “On November 14th, my feature length documentary "Rising Tide: a story of Miami Artists" premiered locally on Miami's PBS affiliate WLRN-TV and will be making its way to public tv stations across the country so check your local listings in the coming months. Joey Daoud (BFA 09) acted as my cinematographer and Matthew Koch (BFA 06) color timed the film from Singapore! Joey and I shot the film last December during the week of Art Basel Miami Beach. The film follows a group of local artists as they navigate the activities and events leading up to one of the largest and most prestigious art fairs in the world. Using their experiences as a guide, the film explores the totality of Miami's thriving art ecosystem, from the unusual prevalence of private art collections to the day time intricacies of being a working artist. When we set out to make the film, I wanted to make an accessible documentary about artists that avoided the typical "art documentary" feeling and so far, it looks like we've succeeded. Early reviews have been very positive and the film has already been accepted into a handful of festivals. I was interviewed for the Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/13/andrew-hevia-on-reptilian_n_2121798.html) and on the local NPR station (http://wlrn.org/post/what-goes-behind-scenes-during-art-basel-miami-beach) and several other culture blogs. It was great and thrilling and things have been going better than I hoped - which brings me to the next item -  Last night, (December 1st) I was awarded a Suncoast Emmy (!!) for a promo spot I made for the documentary. It featured an art duo from the film named "Funner Projects" and their peculiar industrial sculpture - it's a 14 foot mechanized crossbow that launches 2x4s at speeds of over 150mph. We ventured out deep into the Everglades to the site of an abandoned rocket facility (made famous by Joey Daoud in this short film http://youtu.be/Vemu2hfPruY) and blew up stuff for two straight days while filming with a high speed camera. Joey Daoud was again on hand to help.  Also, December 15 is the 8th edition of the Borscht Film Festival, a semi-annual regional film event that I've been a part of for a decade now - we'll be premiering a number of short films that we produced specifically for the event, including a new short by Nick Corirossi (BFA 08) and a new short by Amy Seimetz (FSU 04) that I was lucky enough to produce. For the third year in a row, one of our shorts has been accepted into the Sundance Film Festival and if that weren't enough, it was also announced this week that the Knight Foundation has awarded us $500,000, which will make it possible for us to continue our mission to turn Miami into a recognized independent film center.  We're currently on track to sell out our 2,500 seat venue at Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center, and our satellite events have expanded to fill over two weeks of screenings across the city.

    Warren Report 12/13/12

    From Tara K Clark (MFA 11)  “I will be the production designer on the new feature film from David Winters (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0935916/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1) that will be shooting in Panama City starting in January. I submitted to the production and they contacted me right after I moved to Atlanta. I was just officially hired and I'll be heading down to the coast after Christmas to start preparing. David told me that last time he took a chance on a first time feature designer was in 1986 on the film "Thrashin". His designer from that film was Catherine Hardwicke. I can only assume that means very good things for me.” From Beth Brandon (MFA 06)  “This is a big week for me. I got engaged to an amazing man who's actually not in the industry (not that that's a bad thing of course - he's actually studying to be a therapist.) woo hoo! And the show I've been producing in Las Vegas since August premieres this Sunday night. It's called Sin City Rules, and it's on TLC at 10 PM.  It's a bit of a hot mess but it's super fun and addictive. Here'a a little bit about it:  http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/sin-city-rules   Also on Monday (12/10)  and Friday (12/14)  the two last episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that I segment produced last year will air on ABC. Monday night is the Harris family featuring an Iraqi vet who was burned on over 40% of his body and suffers from PTSD, and Friday is the...Friday family! Who have adopted five amazing siblings and welcomed them into their family of three other kids (one of which is also adopted.) Really proud of both of these episodes.   here's some more info about EM:HE - http://abc.go.com/shows/extreme-makeover-home-edition  Hope everyone tunes in for some addictive TV and some heartwarming holiday fun.” From Bobby Marinelli (MFA 10)  “The Rambler, the feature film that I Art Directed last April with Marco Barreto (MFA 11) as Set Dresser was selected to premiere at this years Sundance Film Festival.  You can read more about that here:   http://www.sundance.org/press-center/release/2013-sundance-film-festival-announces-films-in-spotlight-park-city-at-midni/ Ryan O'Connell (MFA 09) has accepted the position of Video Producer with Life Teen (http://lifeteen.com), an international Catholic youth ministry organization based in Mesa, AZ. Starting in January he will be producing, shooting, and editing content for distribution to over 1,600 member parishes worldwide. From Noel Brydebell (BFA 11)  “After bouncing around the country for the past few months I'm very excited to say that I've landed in LA and accepted a job offer from DisneyToon Studios.  I will be assisting the director and producer for an upcoming project. I'm having a great time catching up with fellow alumni and I'm looking forward to working again with a few DDMG colleagues.  Best of luck to everyone at the film school; the BFA 2012 thesis trailer looks amazing!” From: Paul Cohen, Filmmaker In Residence, Executive Director / The Torchlight Program   “As this Semester draws to a close and graduation is upon us, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the recent 2nd Annual Student Veteran Film Festival. For me it serves as an example of why our film school is among the finest in this nation. Dean Frank Patterson and his staff led by maestro, Chuck Allen, retrofitted the Ruby Diamond Concert Hall with an incredible "sight and sound" system in time to exhibit this year's feature, The Invisible War. This instillation will most certainly lead the way for future exhibition of cinema in this beautiful hall.  It was a privilege for The Torchlight Program to again participate in this year's festival on behalf of the film school. Joining with the Collegiate Veterans Association and Student Veteran Association; this truly expanded into an interdisciplinary event with the added participation of  the Inter fraternity Council, FSU Panhellenic Association and The Center for the Advancement of Human Rights. Dean Frank Patterson, along with Ryan Taylor, President of the CVA, presented, the first annual FSU Student Veterans / Torchlight Award, along with a $25,000 dollar stipend "to a filmmaker whose work illuminates issues that effect our returning Veterans from their service".(Note: This past week The Invisible War was short listed for this years selection for the Best Documentary category for the Academy Award.) Additionally, Dean Frank "green-lit" and Reb Braddock facilitated the film school's participation in creating a short feature documentary surrounding an art-therapy initiative entitled "The Paper Project". This initiative involves student veterans creating original works of art from processed materials produced from the battle fatigues they wore while serving our country. Graduating BFA Thesis film student, Christina Campagnola (BFA 12)  selected a group of film students to crew on all positions for this production. Through The Torchlight Program I recruited the assistance of the accomplished New York based documentarian, Brittany Huckabee (who produced Sexy Baby, a Tribeca Film Festival favorite, currently airing on the Showtime Network), to oversee the direction of this team to produce a documentary that we hope will realize a strong festival life. A clip from this short doc was screened during the Student Veteran Film Festival along with examples of the created art garnering strong accolades from our Tallahassee, community members. Director, Kirby Dick along with Myla Haider, one of the heroic subjects, of The Invisible War generously stayed on to attend a second screening of the film for our film school students. There was a remarkable Q & A session with our film students that followed leading Kirby to say to me before he departed Tallahassee to continue working on his new project, "people need to know what is going on at FSU and at this incredible film program!".  Congratulations to our graduating filmmakers of 2012!!!” From Kathy Barber (BFA  97)  “I entered this short-short love story contest and just received word I am in the top finals.

     From Daniel Aviles (MFA  09)  “2012 has been a great year! I finished grading 2 features and shot another one here in Ecuador. These 3 films will have a  theatrical release sometime next year. I finally published my first photography book "Eventos Dependientes" along with a solo exhibition in an art gallery here in Quito. I was also accepted into Global Cinematography Institute in Los Angeles and attend their seminars while spending a great time with some of my close friends from FSU. Last, but not least, I have been accepted into the Berlinale Talent Campus for 2013 Berlin's Film Fest. This is a great event that gathers young filmmakers from all over the world. I am very grateful for all that this year has brought. Happy Holidays to everyone at FSU.” From Courtney Harmstone (BFA 12)  “I will be attending Sundance this year and would love the opportunity to connect with some FSU alums while there!

Thank you so much!!” From Lauren Morelli (BFA  08)  “I am extremely excited that "Afternoon Delight," a film I costume supervised this summer has been accepted into Sundance in the US Dramatic category.

You can read more about Afternoon Delight here: http://filmguide.sundance.org/film/13033/afternoon_delight  Currently, I am set costuming Season 3 of "After Lately," Chelsea Handler's mocumentary show of behind the scenes at Chelsea Lately. Everyone is very excited because we have moved over to shoot at Universal this season. It's full of celebrity guests and ridiculous shenanigans. The show will air in March.

     From Daniel Aviles (MFA  09)  “2012 has been a great year! I finished grading 2 features and shot another one here in Ecuador. These 3 films will have a  theatrical release sometime next year. I finally published my first photography book "Eventos Dependientes" along with a solo exhibition in an art gallery here in Quito. I was also accepted into Global Cinematography Institute in Los Angeles and attend their seminars while spending a great time with some of my close friends from FSU. Last, but not least, I have been accepted into the Berlinale Talent Campus for 2013 Berlin's Film Fest. This is a great event that gathers young filmmakers from all over the world. I am very grateful for all that this year has brought. Happy Holidays to everyone at FSU.” From Courtney Harmstone (BFA 12)  “I will be attending Sundance this year and would love the opportunity to connect with some FSU alums while there!

    Warren Report 1/6/13

    From Aaron Moorhead (BFA 08)  “The film I co-directed, Resolution, has been having an incredible festival run (over 30 fests!) and has had an amazing response from the viewers. My co-director and I have been touring with the film in the US and abroad for the last six months, and now we get our VOD/iTunes/Amazon release through Tribeca Film on Jan. 23, and a limited theatrical on Jan 25! I'd love for any FSU alums to take a look and let me know what they think of the film. We also just wrapped a short that'll be hitting the festivals for 2013, and we have three new feature scripts that we're shopping around and are looking to get made sometime in the first or second quarter of the year. It was quite a year.” Claudia Johnson’s documentary, Silence will screen at the St. Augustine Film Fest January 20 at 2 p.m., the day before Martin Luther King Day!
