    Warren Report 8/16/13

     “Lifetime has greenlighted Deliverance Creek, a two-hour backdoor pilot from Nicholas Sparks Prods. and Warner Horizon Television. Written by Melissa Carter (MFA 96), the period project is set at the end of the Civil War and centers on Belle Barlowe who attempts to defend her family’s land by any means necessary. When the corrupt bank that runs their town pushes Belle into becoming an outlaw, the stakes become personal, setting off a chain of events that force her to question whether it’s better to be good or to survive. This marks the first pilot for Sparks and his publishing agent/creative partner Theresa Park’s TV production company, which the two launched in spring 2012 with a first-look deal at WBTV, tapping UTA agent Elise Henderson as head of development. Sparks and Park will executive produce Deliverance Creek with Carter, while Henderson serves as co-executive producer.” From Paul Seetachitt (MFA  07)  “I'm excited to announce the feature I wrote/directed, ROCK JOCKS, is now available on DVD. It's available for online purchase at Amazon amzn.to/14IDsJY , Best Buy http://goo.gl/G5LKp8 , Target http://goo.gl/WvbjmJ , and a bunch of other retailers. It is also still available for digital download at Itunes, Amazon, or www.rockjocksthemovie.com . You can even get it on VOD (Video-On-Demand) if you have cable service like Time Warner or AT&T Uverse. Like I said, very exciting.  Rock Jocks is a sci-fi comedy about a band of government workers who shoot down killer asteroids for a living. Think Clerks meets Armageddon.  Starring Felicia Day (“The Guild”), Andrew Bowen (“MadTV”), Gerry Bednob (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin”), Doug Jones (“Pan Labyrinth”),  Justin Chon (“The Twilight Saga”), Robert Picardo (“Star Trek: Voyager”),  and Jason Mewes(“Clerks”).” From Alex Durham (BFA 06)  “Rob Butler (MFA '97) and I have been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding picture editing for our work on Deadliest Catch. It's an honor to be nominated this year alongside a fellow FSU Film School graduate.” From David Shark (MFA 12)  “Clarke Munson  (MFA 13) and I finished in the quarterfinals of the Scriptapalooza television screenwriting competition for one-hour spec scripts.  Our scripts were written as part of George Geiger's MFA television writing class.”   And Julie Anne Wight (MFA 02) finished in the semi-finals! Another pilot Julie wrote was a finalist in the America's Newest Scriptwriter competition. Here's a trailer to a new NBC TV show called The Blacklist – it's a thriller starring James Spader.  The co-star is a relative newcomer named Megan Boone.   Megan is an FSU Theater alum  who took the Acting for the Camera (actually twice), and appeared in many, many of our films.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9_qgX7pTlc   Can’t wait to watch this new series! From Ryan O’Connell (MFA  09)  “I shot a documentary about World Youth Day 2013 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil at the end of July and will hopefully have a cut ready for festivals early next year. Over 3 million people from all over the world descended on Copacabana beach to greet Pope Francis--making it one of the ten largest gatherings in human history. My documentary will focus on the emotional and spiritual journey of four teenagers in our group as they experienced Rio and the World Youth Day events for 9 days.”  “Twelve years ago Michael Kromm (BFA 00) and Greg Vass capped off a year-long search for start-up financing by signing a bunch of papers and officially opening the doors of their production company, SolidLine Media. But that was just the beginning. Operating out of an apartment in Palatine, IL for the first year, finding new business for a young company with young owners proved to be quite a challenge. "We struggled," states SLM Co-Founder and Executive Producer Greg Vass. "But we started at 7am every day and worked until 7pm every night, no matter what we had to work on. Many days we just spent talking strategy." And since then, that perseverance has never wavered. The next decade would prove to bring even bigger challenges as Kromm and Vass built their company, which now employs ten full time crew members. SolidLine is housed at 4,200 square foot production offices in Chicago's downtown loop.” From Erika Bagnarello  (MFA  06))  “Just wanted to share that I started filming my first feature as a writer/director last week. We're filming in the Dominican Republic for 5 weeks, so 4 more to go.” From Matt Pope (MFA  05)  “My company (Modest) is looking to hire an editor, likely starting as a contract position for a few months and then possibly extending or expanding from there depending on how it's working out.  Needs to be someone local to Atlanta.  Ideally would prefer someone with narrative experience and not just promo/corporate style work, although the job will entail some of both.  Anyone interested should email jobs@modestATL.com with a link to previous work. “ From Dylan Correll (BFA 07)  “This is for New York. The post production supervisor and coordinator I've worked with on a few films are looking for an intern or two in the near future.   The first thing I did when I arrived here 5 years ago was to intern with a post super and it opened a lot of doors. Would be a great opportunity for someone looking to work in editing, sound, vfx or post production in NY. Here's the blurb the coordinator gave me:  Post supervising team looking for a intern who has is a self starter with a background in film or theatre.  Editing skills would be a bonus.  Tasks: running errands that are time sensitive, creating documents, assisting with workflow of projects, updating calendars, and general administrative support.  Please email Tara Carrozza (tcpostprod@gmail.com) and Jason Fournet (jfournet@gmail.com) with resume and availability.” From B.

    Warren Report 8/22/13

    Just returned from Film School new student orientation today – remember what that was like?  And of course we had endless rain to welcome our new students! The FSU Film School BFA Class of 2014 presents their 25 original short documentary films!  The event is not ticketed and is open to all.  The screening is 1:00pm on Friday, August 30th at the SLC on FSU's campus. From Max Clarke (MFA 99)  “On Friday, August 16, 2013, Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum welcomes Psychic TV for a rare performance at New Hazlett Theater. Fronted by performance artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Psychic TV (born out of industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle) has made innovative and provocative music for over three decades, blending elements of psychedelia and dance with industrial sounds. The performance will be preceded by the debut screening of a new film, marking the 30th anniversary of Psychic TV's second album, DREAMS LESS SWEET. Featuring the work of 47 artists, PSYCHIC TV: DREAMS LESS SWEET is a collectively created video work designed to accompany the album.  The film includes a red/cyan anaglyph 3D sequence produced by Maximus Clarke. Clarke’s segment incorporates stereoscopic video footage captured during a nighttime journey on the Seattle monorail system. The film and performance are presented in connection with the exhibition Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: S/HE IS HER/E, on view from June 15 to September 15, 2013, at the Warhol Museum. The screening of PSYCHIC TV: DREAMS LESS SWEET, and the live Psychic TV performance that follows, are both part of the Warhol Sound Series. The film begins at 8 PM; tickets and further information about the event are available at the Warhol Museum’s website:  http://www.warhol.org/WebCalendar/event.aspx?id=17455 From Charlie Moss (BFA 2008) “ I arranged the aircraft that appeared in the most recent season of the Starz television series Magic City.”   There’s a really nice memorial Facebook page set up for Dr. Donald Ungurait, one of the founders of the Film School:   https://www.facebook.com/Dr.DonaldFUnguraitMemorialPage   As y’all probably know, I spend a great deal of time stalking Facebook so I can keep up with what our alumni are doing.   And I’m often amazed by some of the things that are shared and the language that is used!  AOL Jobs reports that 1 in 3 employers reject applicants based on Facebook.   I’m sharing these tips for managing your career on social media that appeared in  Tallahassee Woman:“Whether you are a recent graduate or a seasoned professional, at some point you’ll likely find yourself searching for a new job.  And how you use social media websites can have an impact on landing that next gig.  You can’t be too cautious when it comes to social media.   That’s because 37% of employers check social media websites as part of the hiring process, according to a survey of human resources professionals by CareerBuilder.com.  (I personally think that’s much higher in the film industry since everyone tends to be so media savy.)   Here are some tips on how to avoid career-limiting social media mistakes: Search yourself.  Want to check out what your potential or current employer may see about you online?  Do a search on any of the major search engines to get a snapshot of how you appear digitally. Avoid sharing sensitive work-related information.  Don’t share privileged or confidential information about your company. Don’t vent about work.  Don’t complain about your boss or the work.  Always assume that someone from your company may be watching what you say or post.” And while party shots are great fun to share, think about how those posts, especially if they are continual,  would they appear to a potential employer. From Tansy Michaud (BFA 11)  “Adam Carboni (BFA 11)  and I are making a documentary about a drive-in movie theater in upstate New York. The place has been in operation since 1951, and they have four 35mm projectors that play the latest movies every night.  But...since the studios are going to stop distributing film prints, the future of this drive-in is uncertain, especially because it costs $80,000 to upgrade only one projector. They have four! But as it turns out, Honda just launched this contest and is going to donate brand new digital projectors to 5 lucky drive-ins. Those with the most votes win.  So....  If you lovely folks get a second today, could you please follow the below link and vote for the Hi-Way Drive-In to win a new digital projector. The owner is the most genuine guy and this would help him beyond words. Here is the link to the voting page:  http://projectdrivein.com/vote_102Thank you all so much! We'll send another update out when our doc is finished! PS: If you're feeling really generous you can actually vote every day! From Anna Margarita Albelo (BA FSU 93) “My feature film debut, "Who's Afraid of Vagina Wolf?" won the Audience Award for Best Feature Comedy at Philadelphia's QFEST and actress, GUINEVERE TURNER (American Psycho, L Word) won the Grand Jury Award for Best Performance at Outfest in Los Angeles.  Also stars, Emmy Award nominated Carrie Preston (True Blood, The Good Wife) and Janina Gavankar (True Blood, The League) Upcoming screenings at Lincoln Center Sept 9th for NewFest, Oslo Sept 15th, Bologna Sept 22, Atlanta Oct 7th. Please discover our facebook page, we'd love your support with  a like! https://www.facebook.com/VWolfPack A few weeks ago I posted information about Jason Doty (MFA 00) who got an agent and made a major script deal while living in Indiana.   He had written a short summary of how that happened, which I emailed to those alums who asked for a copy.  Several of you asked for more of that kind of information, so here’s the next one:   Marla DuMont (MFA Writing 08), a writer on Mike and Molly, has written about her journey.  If you’d like to read that, just reply to this email and I’ll send you a copy.   And, if anyone else has a career journey they would be willing to share, I’d be very receptive! From Iman Zawahry (MFA 08)  “I'm excited to announced that I have joined rock star Adele Romanski (BFA 04) and the crew of PAPERBACK as a producer. We successfully raised enough funds for our Kickstarter. Thanks so much to all the alums that donated!  Currently we are in need of a AC/DIT and a Key Grip/Gaffer that can work as local hires in Gainesville, FL. Our shooting dates are9/5-9/30, Thursday-Monday shoots. We are also looking for actors to fill some small roles if interested please contact me to get more information.  imankz@gmail.com. “ “IFP is very excited to announce the October launch of The Media Center, our new facility dedicated to the future of storytelling in the digital age. In partnership with the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment, The Made in NY Media Center by IFP combines co-working spaces, cutting-edge classes and events, and connection to resources for creators working in a variety of disciplines.
