    Warren Report 7.31.14

     What a fun time at the Film School – lots of screenings this weekend, and today we are welcoming alumni who will be joining us for MFA Graduation and our annual Fund Raising Gala:  Wes Ball (BFA 02), Ruth Hernandez (MFA 98), David Mitchell (MFA 02) and George Reasner (MFA 94).  A weekend filled with great films, screenings, workshops, social FUN!   I’ll repeat information about the screening schedule as it was listed in last week’s Warren Report: Join us for our 2014 screening of the MFA D2 films! Admission is free and tickets are not required. The screening starts at on Thursday, July 31, at 7pm at the Student Life Cinema theater on campus.Then the MFA Thesis film afternoon screening will be on Saturday, August 2nd! The screenings starts at 2pm at the Ruby Diamond Auditorium. Admission is free and tickets are not required. And then the MFA Thesis film evening screening on Saturday, August 2nd. The screenings starts at 8pm at the Ruby Diamond Auditorium.Admission is free and tickets are not required. From Aaron Moorhead (BFA  08)  “One of my biggest bucket-list items checked off: a film I made, SPRING, is premiering in the Vanguard section at the Toronto International Film Festival. From schlepping around Cannes like hobos to find an Italian producer, to going to war with SAG, to bribing Italian customs agents in order to get our special FX molds to set on time, it took everything we had to get this damn film off the ground. My filmmaking partner Justin Benson wrote, co-produced, co-directed and co-edited the film with me. Some FSU Alums were critical to making it happen: Michael Felker (BFA 10) edited the film with us, Brian Barrow (BFA 09)  was the colorist, Will Sampson (BFA 09)  was the Steadicam Op/1st AC . Info about the film here: http://www.tiff.net/festivals/thefestival/programmes/vanguard/spring-1 . It's about a young man in a personal and legal tailspin that flees SoCal to the coast of Italy, where he sparks up a romance with a girl carrying a dark secret. If you do one more thing in your LIFE, come see the film with us in Toronto!” Great interview with Zach Pullam, young actor who is in many of our Film School productions:   http://www.fsunews.com/article/20140723/FSVIEW0104/140723003/Tallahassee-s-Zac-Pullam-rise-stardom From Armando Salas (MFA 02) “Really proud of this project I shot starring Uma Thurman for director Jessica Valentine, one of three winners of the Trigger Street/ Jameson First Shot competition.

     We had an amazingly wonderful weekend with visiting alumni giving workshops and screenings, fantastic D2’s and MFA 2 thesis films, lots of social fun in between.  Congratulations to the new MFA alumni who received financial awards at graduation: Stacy Milbourn won the Matthew Lopez Screenwriter Award for $2500 Stephanie Williams won the Moore Family Award for Academic Achievement for $1500 Kendall McCrory won the Chip Chalmers Graduate Mentor Award for $2500 Good luck to the MFA Class of 2014 as they enter the kingdom of film!  We are proud to release the online version of Motion Picture Arts, an annual publication of the College.

This script was written in Julianna Baggott's class Fall of '13. Semi-finalists will be announced in two weeks.”   I went to the list of quarterfinalists and found Stacy Milbourn (MFA 14) with her script “Beyond the Bookshelf”, and Lorraine Portman (MFA 99) with “EDisharmony”.  Congratulations to all – hope I didn’t miss anyone!  From Joey D’Alessandro (BFA 95)  “I'm very excited to now be a full time game design instructor in Vancouver Film School's Game Design program.

    Warren Report 8.14.14

    From Rodrigo Rocha-Campos (MFA 05)  “This is my latest project which I directed and produced. Very excited for having stepped out of cinematography and taken the chance to direct. Trailer is available in vimeo https://www.facebook.com/l/zAQG3h84MAQGYMW827XK4vrmdujRXdhDGOcpuik16tIKTzA/https%3A//vimeo.com/98232846 From Will Bigham (MFA  04)  “Just a quick update from the Bigham family.  Catherine and I have been shopping a few projects to investors.  Hopefully I'll have another update soon with good news about that.  Catherine and my eldest daughter did a national tour of "Miracle on 34th St." and both have done a handful of commercials in the past few years.  My youngest had a fun role in "Saving Mr. Banks" and booked a couple of TV shows - "The Crazy Ones" and "True Blood" (her episode airs this Sunday, Aug. 10).  With any luck my girls will bankroll me and I'll be able to retire before I turn 40, living life like Billy Ray Cyrus - minus the twerking.” Interesting article on the shortage of qualified film professionals in Georgia:   http://tinyurl.com/mjsnep7 From Patrick Gines (BFA  10)  “Yesterday a campaign we created for the university launched and we are really excited to share: frame.is/fsu-opening-nights This was a project for the FSU performance series (previously Seven Days of Opening Nights) now called, “Opening Nights.” We created the idea for the campaign, which is the people and places of Tallahassee inspired by the performances and culture of Opening Nights: so a group of young adults walk down College Ave. after having seen a jazz performance, a couple closes down a restaurant downtown (can you guess which one?) as they dine and discuss an author’s book reading over dessert, a young boy has just seen his first theatrical performance with his grandparents and he reflects on the cool sword fight from the Shakespearian play, and then we end with a single dancer, a student at the university, on her apartment balcony looking over the lights of the city as she dances and dreams, inspired by the professional dance company performance she saw as part of Opening Nights that evening. As you will see in the link, we made a 60 second, a 30 second, and four 15 second commercials. Please enjoy and share the link with others.” Following is a beautifully written  piece about Robin William’s death and depression, written by Ashley Miller (MFA 08)  “It's hard to see something like this happen to someone like Robin Williams, much like Stephen Fry's revelation of attempted suicide last year. It reminds me that if I make it to 63 I will still be someone who struggles with depression and who could fail in that struggle at any time. It reminds me that it will never go away. And it reminds me that it doesn't matter how much I accomplish, accomplishments will never be bulwark enough against the thing. Living with chronic conditions, including depression and I imagine addiction, is remarkably difficult, even when those conditions are "under control," because you're just a bad day or a single wrong step away from them being massively out of control. And the daily grind of dealing with them, all the energy and money poured into treatment and counsel and behavior and environment can build up without warning and pull you down. I am lucky that all my conditions are treatable to some extent. I've been on medication non-stop for 22 years and I will have to take medicine every day until I die. It is remarkable, really, that I'm alive, and I am grateful for it and the science that's made it possible. But some days are a punch to the gut. And some days I am physically unwell. And some days I am sad. And some days they all happen at the same time. And some weeks are just collections of those kind of days. And some months are collections of those weeks. I'm having that sort of a month, but I am OK. Because there are a lot of people in the world who love me and who I love and I know that, and many of you are here on Facbeook. Depression lies, but I don't think it could ever convince me I didn't love you all. And that is enough for today. And tomorrow I'll figure out tomorrow.” From Aimee Barth Dirksen (BFA  01)  “Part2 Pictures is looking for an experienced editor in NYC to cut a fast-paced, edgy, doc-style unscripted TV pilot.  Position would start immediately and run through late September.  Must know Avid.  Please send resumes to aimee@part2pictures.com The FSU department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is seeking someoe to create thirty-five 1-2 minute videos describing our faculty’s research to external audiences, with the primary focus being prospective graduate students. This project was initiated after seeing similar videos from FSU’s Education department:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLCsXiACK-LKogtYMDjG-RBfYj298jCZGh&v=TpWKsnSpdB4   We envision each video beginning with a standard 5-10 second departmental intro (like in the Dept. of Ed. video) and then transitioning into an interview with the faculty members about their research. We’d also like the video’s to include inter-spliced footage of the faculty member’s lab or photos relating to their work. Ideally, we’d like the videos completed by October or November 2014, but welcome other proposed timelines as part of the application package.   Interested candidates should send a resume and examples of past video projects to Professor Kenneth Hanson at hanson@chem.fsu.edu. Additional information such as letters of reference or alternative timeline proposals are welcome but not required.  We anticipate paying between $100-150 per video.   Questions can be directed to Debbie Hanson at hanson@chem.fsu.edu.  “I am a documentary filmmaker based in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I am assisting a documentary team based in Israel.  They are in the development stage of a documentary about the Magic: The Gathering card game and  would like to hire a documentary researcher in the Pensacola, Florida area.    Here's a link to a story about the murder of Sean Dugas, a journalist, who was a Magic player that would be the focus of the research.http://www.pnj.com/story/news/2014/02/12/magic-game-as-motive-detailed-in-cormier-trial/5413143/  The filmmakers are trying to determine whether they should do some shooting in Pensacola, Florida.  The research would involve conducting pre-interviews with Magic players, journalists and players who knew Mr. Dugas; observing a Magic gathering; and interviewing the TBS shop owner where the game is sold.”   If you are in the Pensacola area and interested in this, contact Valerie Lapin at vlapin@aol.com FSU CMPA Screenings & Awards Update – August 14, 2014 Scoundrel (BFA Thesis 2013 Michael Kefeyalew) was selected for screening at the New Orleans Film Festival, October 16-23.

    Warren Report 8.21.14

    Exciting times at the Film School, welcoming new faculty, West Palm Beach Faculty and students, and new BFA’s and MFA’s!  New offices, new classrooms and labs!  Should be a wonderful year to make films! From Andrew Fairbank (MFA 12)  “M.E.G.A Media Entertainment  have just moved into our new office space in West Hollywood under the roof of Wilmer Valderrama Enterprises.  We've been taking time to develop our creative film and TV slate with Joshua Allen and Jeremy Fox, a former development team at Annapurna.  Also, we're turning the lights on our fully functioning post house. We look forward to the new potential business opportunities it provides. In addition we're excited to announce that Briana Frapart (BFA '11) and Avital Epstein (BFA '11) are coming on board to help contribute as creative producers. Looking forward to big things on the horizon!” From Evan Houston (BFA  10)  “I am pleased to announce a little music video we shot in the mountains for a Bonnie Prince Billy tune has been accepted into the New Orleans Film Festival, hosted by the estimable New Orleans Film Society. Really happy to have made this with a great group of friends, and looking forward to coming back to NOLA” Congratulations to Paola  Ariza (MFA 13) who received the following letter from the Sundance Institute!   “We are pleased to inform you that your script The Pits has been selected for the second round of consideration for the 2015 January Screenwriters Lab.” From Craig Kief (BFA  99)  “In July I shot a TV movie for HBO starring Andy Samberg. It's a comedy about the fictional longest game of tennis ever, which takes 7 days to play at Wimbledon in 2004. It was a lot of fun to shoot because it was ridiculously funny... But also because I shot it on vintage video cameras from the 90s and 2000s. It should be released in 2015.  Last week director Greg Jardin (MFA 05) (co-written by Matt Beans (MFA 05)) released an incredible short film I shot for him called Floating. It was three days of shooting for me, and nearly a year of work for him to create the CGI! It's become a Vimeo Staff Pick, and can be viewed here http://vimeo.com/103146755  (NOTE FROM MERYL:  Please take time to watch this – its amazing!  Cannot believe a balloon made me tear up!)    For nearly a year I shot a series for CNN and Tom Hanks' company Playtone called 'The Sixties' that's been nominated for two Primetime Emmys. Several alumni participated including DPs Armando Salas (MFA 02) , Paul Marschall (MFA 00) , and Brian Hoodenpyle (MFA 95) - who all shot portions of it. Ryan Lynch (MFA 02) gaffed the Los Angeles unit. This week the entire series is being re-broadcast on CNN, and it's compelling TV worth checking out.     Earlier this year with Soapbox Films, producers Kris Eber (BFA 99)  and Chris Alender (BFA 98), and several other alumni, I shot a number of commercials in support of the release of Muppets Most Wanted for clients like Toyota, Subway, Lufthansa, QVC, and Lipton. A fun anamorphic spot we did can be seen here: http://www.craigkief.com/?portfolio=moi   I also worked with producer Brandon Carroll (BFA 02) last fall on a cool commercial for Under Armour with lots of high speed boxing photography from Canelo Alvarez. http://www.craigkief.com/?portfolio=under-armour    As it's already been mentioned in the report, for the third year in a row I just worked with a number of FSU alumni, including producer Lisa Barrett McGuire (BFA 02), on the Jameson First Shot project. http://www.youtube.com/user/jamesonwhiskey?app=desktop&persist_app=1   Lots of other commercials and jobs in between. It's been a very busy year!” From Lorraine Portman (MFA  99)  “I will be in LA for Action on Film International Film Festival August 22 to 31.  "eDisharmony" is nominated for Best Comedy Scene and Best Comedy Feature Screenplay.  I'm nominated for the Arthur Rosenfeld Award for Excellence in Dramatic Writing.  And then I'm back in LA again for the Broad Humor Film Festival Sept. 4 - 7.  I'm hoping to get together with FSU friends Saturday August 30.  Email for time and place -- would love to see everyone! lorraineportman@gmail.com.   Sunday, August 7th  at 4 pm there will be readings from the finalist screenplays, all comedies.  Electric Lodge Performing Arts Center at 1416 Electric Avenue, Venice, California 90291.  http://www.broadhumor.com/festival/schedule.html From Elizabeth Heineken Stevens (MFA 13)  “This past March, I produced a web series called "The Loyal Bavarians"... it's a quirky web series commissioned by the town to promote tourism. (Imagine an episode of Arrested Development directed by Wes Anderson guest-staring Amelie, and you'd have The Loyal Bavarians). We need some help in post. I'm looking for 2-3 editors, and a sound designer. I'd prefer someone in the Atlanta area, but I'd be willing to considering work via skype for the right collaborator.  Great opportunity for someone who has always been interested in editing or sound work, but hasn't had a chance to try their hand post film school.  This is NOT a union gig. Compensation will be discussed with serious candidates. If anyone is interested, email me at elizabeth@bnje.com “ From Iman Zawahry (MFA 08)  "I help start one of the first American-Muslim film grants in the US in collaboration with the non-profit organization, Islamic Scholarship Fund. The Islamic Scholarship Fund Film Grant specifically aims to facilitate and support Muslims entering the world of film, who intend to create artistic, engaging and positive stories about Muslims. The chosen recipient will receive a $20,000 grant, mentorship and/or networking opportunities from an industry professional to help further the advancement of their script and film. Check out more details and apply if you are interested!

The film was co-produced by Jennifer Arzt (MFA 05), and stars Gary Ploski, Emily Morse and Michael Barra (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN).

Check out the new movies at movies.fsu.edu and watch the promo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqYOUv19fPw&feature=youtu.be From Jason Rodgers (MFA  99)  ATLANTA  “I need to hire at least two  part time adjunct instructors with strengths in production, post production, producing, screenwriting, lighting and sound-for-picture.  An ideal candidate would be able to do “all of the above,” but strengths in one or two areas would be plenty sufficient.  I have Q4 classes already scheduled that need instructors who can teach using AVID and ProTools, and I’m highly motivate to hire!  Candidates need not have a ton of teaching experience – I promise they’ll get PLENTY here!  We have a GREAT hand’s-on program and I’m really proud of what we do here – AIU-Atlanta is a GREAT place for someone to develop their teaching CV, and I LOVE hiring FSU grads (Nicole Rogers(MFA 12), Jaye Davidson (MFA 10) , Scott Devine (MFA 93), Brian Aramayo (MFA 10), Alana McNair (MFA 11) and Carmen Jones Madison (BFA 97) have “done time” with us and it’s been a REAL pleasure to work with them all!)

    Warren Report 8.21.14

    Exciting times at the Film School, welcoming new faculty, West Palm Beach Faculty and students, and new BFA’s and MFA’s!  New offices, new classrooms and labs!  Should be a wonderful year to make films! From Andrew Fairbank (MFA 12)  “M.E.G.A Media Entertainment  have just moved into our new office space in West Hollywood under the roof of Wilmer Valderrama Enterprises.  We've been taking time to develop our creative film and TV slate with Joshua Allen and Jeremy Fox, a former development team at Annapurna.  Also, we're turning the lights on our fully functioning post house. We look forward to the new potential business opportunities it provides. In addition we're excited to announce that Briana Frapart (BFA '11) and Avital Epstein (BFA '11) are coming on board to help contribute as creative producers. Looking forward to big things on the horizon!” From Evan Houston (BFA  10)  “I am pleased to announce a little music video we shot in the mountains for a Bonnie Prince Billy tune has been accepted into the New Orleans Film Festival, hosted by the estimable New Orleans Film Society. Really happy to have made this with a great group of friends, and looking forward to coming back to NOLA” Congratulations to Paola  Ariza (MFA 13) who received the following letter from the Sundance Institute!   “We are pleased to inform you that your script The Pits has been selected for the second round of consideration for the 2015 January Screenwriters Lab.” From Craig Kief (BFA  99)  “In July I shot a TV movie for HBO starring Andy Samberg. It's a comedy about the fictional longest game of tennis ever, which takes 7 days to play at Wimbledon in 2004. It was a lot of fun to shoot because it was ridiculously funny... But also because I shot it on vintage video cameras from the 90s and 2000s. It should be released in 2015.  Last week director Greg Jardin (MFA 05) (co-written by Matt Beans (MFA 05)) released an incredible short film I shot for him called Floating. It was three days of shooting for me, and nearly a year of work for him to create the CGI! It's become a Vimeo Staff Pick, and can be viewed here http://vimeo.com/103146755  (NOTE FROM MERYL:  Please take time to watch this – its amazing!  Cannot believe a balloon made me tear up!)    For nearly a year I shot a series for CNN and Tom Hanks' company Playtone called 'The Sixties' that's been nominated for two Primetime Emmys. Several alumni participated including DPs Armando Salas (MFA 02) , Paul Marschall (MFA 00) , and Brian Hoodenpyle (MFA 95) - who all shot portions of it. Ryan Lynch (MFA 02) gaffed the Los Angeles unit. This week the entire series is being re-broadcast on CNN, and it's compelling TV worth checking out.     Earlier this year with Soapbox Films, producers Kris Eber (BFA 99)  and Chris Alender (BFA 98), and several other alumni, I shot a number of commercials in support of the release of Muppets Most Wanted for clients like Toyota, Subway, Lufthansa, QVC, and Lipton. A fun anamorphic spot we did can be seen here: http://www.craigkief.com/?portfolio=moi   I also worked with producer Brandon Carroll (BFA 02) last fall on a cool commercial for Under Armour with lots of high speed boxing photography from Canelo Alvarez. http://www.craigkief.com/?portfolio=under-armour    As it's already been mentioned in the report, for the third year in a row I just worked with a number of FSU alumni, including producer Lisa Barrett McGuire (BFA 02), on the Jameson First Shot project. http://www.youtube.com/user/jamesonwhiskey?app=desktop&persist_app=1   Lots of other commercials and jobs in between. It's been a very busy year!” From Lorraine Portman (MFA  99)  “I will be in LA for Action on Film International Film Festival August 22 to 31.  "eDisharmony" is nominated for Best Comedy Scene and Best Comedy Feature Screenplay.  I'm nominated for the Arthur Rosenfeld Award for Excellence in Dramatic Writing.  And then I'm back in LA again for the Broad Humor Film Festival Sept. 4 - 7.  I'm hoping to get together with FSU friends Saturday August 30.  Email for time and place -- would love to see everyone! lorraineportman@gmail.com.   Sunday, August 7th  at 4 pm there will be readings from the finalist screenplays, all comedies.  Electric Lodge Performing Arts Center at 1416 Electric Avenue, Venice, California 90291.  http://www.broadhumor.com/festival/schedule.html From Elizabeth Heineken Stevens (MFA 13)  “This past March, I produced a web series called "The Loyal Bavarians"... it's a quirky web series commissioned by the town to promote tourism. (Imagine an episode of Arrested Development directed by Wes Anderson guest-staring Amelie, and you'd have The Loyal Bavarians). We need some help in post. I'm looking for 2-3 editors, and a sound designer. I'd prefer someone in the Atlanta area, but I'd be willing to considering work via skype for the right collaborator.  Great opportunity for someone who has always been interested in editing or sound work, but hasn't had a chance to try their hand post film school.  This is NOT a union gig. Compensation will be discussed with serious candidates. If anyone is interested, email me at elizabeth@bnje.com “ From Iman Zawahry (MFA 08)  "I help start one of the first American-Muslim film grants in the US in collaboration with the non-profit organization, Islamic Scholarship Fund. The Islamic Scholarship Fund Film Grant specifically aims to facilitate and support Muslims entering the world of film, who intend to create artistic, engaging and positive stories about Muslims. The chosen recipient will receive a $20,000 grant, mentorship and/or networking opportunities from an industry professional to help further the advancement of their script and film. Check out more details and apply if you are interested! Deadline is August 30th. http://islamicscholarshipfund.org/film-grant-2/elizabeth@bnje.com. From Claudia Johnson (screenwriting faculty)  “The Fourth Edition of CRAFTING SHORT SCREENPLAYS THAT CONNECT is coming out on August 28th, published by Focal Press (http://www.focalpress.com/books/details/9780415735476) and featuring the short screenplays and the award-winning films on the companion website (www.focalpress.com/cw/johnson) by former Film School students Matt Stevens (MFA 91), Brian Gutiérrez Aramayo (MFA 10, Akil Dupont (MFA 10) and Ariya Watty (BFA 09), Brian Sharpe & Iman K.

The film was co-produced by Jennifer Arzt (MFA 05), and stars Gary Ploski, Emily Morse and Michael Barra (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN). This has been a labor of love for over five years - it's a dream come true for the film to be available nationwide. Check it out if you get a chance! New contest.  I know nothing more than appears here:  “Please visit www.Zoomtilt.com to sign up for the Screenwriter's Clubhouse or the ZoomTilt mailing list.

Check out the new movies at movies.fsu.edu and watch the promo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqYOUv19fPw&feature=youtu.be From Jason Rodgers (MFA  99)  ATLANTA  “I need to hire at least two  part time adjunct instructors with strengths in production, post production, producing, screenwriting, lighting and sound-for-picture.  An ideal candidate would be able to do “all of the above,” but strengths in one or two areas would be plenty sufficient.  I have Q4 classes already scheduled that need instructors who can teach using AVID and ProTools, and I’m highly motivate to hire!  Candidates need not have a ton of teaching experience – I promise they’ll get PLENTY here!  We have a GREAT hand’s-on program and I’m really proud of what we do here – AIU-Atlanta is a GREAT place for someone to develop their teaching CV, and I LOVE hiring FSU grads (Nicole Rogers(MFA 12), Jaye Davidson (MFA 10) , Scott Devine (MFA 93), Brian Aramayo (MFA 10), Alana McNair (MFA 11) and Carmen Jones Madison (BFA 97) have “done time” with us and it’s been a REAL pleasure to work with them all!)
