    Warren Report 9.12.14

     From Melissa Carter (MFA 96)  “Just two days to go!  Deliverance Creek airs this Saturday, September 13th at 8/7C on Lifetime.  The New York Times this Sunday listed it as one of the shows to watch this fall!”    It also made the top 10 lists this fall in TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, and US magazine. From Executive Producer Nicholas Sparks, executive producer/writer Melissa Carter (Jane By Design, Little Black Book) and starring Emmy® nominee/SAG Award winner Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Deliverance Creek premieres Saturday September 13th 8/7pm ET/PT on Lifetime!  You can watch a trailer here:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpubJJNQixc&feature=share Wes Ball’s (BFA 02) film Maze Runner will be opening wide on September 19.   Early reviews available at http://renownedforsound.com/index.php/film-review-the-maze-runner/  and  http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_maze_runner/ From Catherine Boyd Hurd (MFA  94)  “Just want to let you know that I wrote a full length musical called "Zuccotti Park," and we are having a reading/concert  of it at the Woodland Opera House in Woodland, CA on September 28th at 7:30.   With songs that capture the experience of the Occupy movement, “Zuccotti Park” is a musical that examines the human side of the economic system in the United States:  the CEO of a large corporation, a homeless veteran, a family buying their first home and a student who can't find a job, to name a few. The songs, with music by Vatrena King, explore the differing world views of Americans in the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis. If any FSU alums are in my neck of the woods, I'd be happy to get comps for them. Just email me at hurdcat@yahoo.com.   Great review of Aaron Moorhead’s (BFA 08) Spring which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival at http://www.rogerebert.com/festivals-and-awards/tiff-2014-midnight-madness-bleeds-into-rest-of-fest From Joe Papa (BFA 10)  “Waiting on Mary is almost done with rough cut, I'm going to be doing a Producer's cut in October and will start working with our composer to get a nice soundtrack going. I'm working with my manager to write my next film, which is about a by-the-book scientist who injects his dying wife with an experimental serum in order to save her life. Planning to shoot next year. Completely different tone, dark sci-fi, but it's gonna be a ton of fun!!! Also working on a couple of animated shorts for an experimental art gallery in downtown LA, so I'm coloring outside the lines so to speak with those projects.” From Ji Im (BFA 93)  “My 25 min documentary video “Brian’s Dots” premiered at Burning Man, Videogasm camp (2:45 and E), on midnight Thursday, 8/28/14.  It was shown on two 8"x10" rear projected screens, playing simultaneously. They had loud speakers to provide “theatrical” atmosphere. It really was amazing and felt very special premiering “Brian’s Dots” at Burning Man. Garrard Whatley (BFA 93) was Re-recording Mixer and Yinjia Chen (MFA 12) for additional editing. This video was shot mostly by a young man who had a serious accident at the age of 16. With determination and spirit he had a miraculous recovery and left for Hawaii in search of something more.  He discovered he loved making artwork using dots which developed into his own unique style of pointillism.” From Stacy Milbourn (MFA Writing 2014)  “My script, DOWN WITH THE TRI-DELTS, is in a title contest. You can vote for me here: http://www.bluecatscreenplay.com/uncategorized/2015-movie-title-contest-quarter-finalists/ From Stephanie Williams (MFA 14)  “Myself ('14) (Editor), Rob Thomason ('14) (Editor), Nia Imani ('14) (Editor and Post-Production Manager), and Eric Davis (MFA 12) (Sound Designer) have been working on the first season of the "The Loyal Bavarians," a quirky comedic web series sponsored by the Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce about a self-appointed royal family in Leavenworth, WA. We were brought onto this project by the talented Elizabeth Stevens ('13), who is producing the show. Looking forward to the premier later this month!” Congratulations to Brandi Bradburn Holland (MFA 99) who is directing her second episode of Heart of Dixie this week!Justin Reager (BFA  11) was recently awarded a Streamy for Editing the Kids React series on YouTube. During his 2 year run as Lead Editor at Fine Brothers Entertainment, he helped the company grow from 2 million subscribers to just over 11 million subscribers. He has recently left the company to pursue a career in freelance." You can read a great article about Max Clarke (MFA 99).  "Maximus Clarke employs the metaphor of the slot machine to consider randomness in the life of the artist, only the payout isn’t anything like a deluge of coins; rather, it’s Western culture itself."  --Kevin Kinsella, BOMB (http://bombmagazine.org/article/6842/randomly-determined) From Richard Travis (MFA  91)  “this past weekend Josh Tickell (MFA 02) was a guest on the first hour of the popular national radio talk show, 'Coast-to-Coast A.M.' The topic was, of course, alternative fuels for our vehicles. For those who aren't familiar with the radio program, it is a middle-of-the-night show that focuses mostly on the paranormal, ufology, conspiracy theories, and etc. In other words, it is for listeners who think that 'The X-Files' was a documentary series. But, they do occasionally have normal guests such as scientists (Michio Kaku), writers, and so forth, and Josh would be one of the latter.”From Melanie Mascioli (MFA 07) re film work in ATL:   “Currently working on Antman in costumes. Just finished a long run with Mockingjay 1&2, which took me to Europe for 3 mos. Before that was Need for Speed and Prisoners. Catching Fire before that. So I've been staying busy and there's more work in Atlanta than anyone can handle! Skilled people moving here are welcome bc we lack in crew.  If you are thinking of moving to ATL you should be prepared to PA for at least a year.”From Melissa Rossi (BFA  04)  “After many years concentrating on screenwriting, I really missed just making stuff, so JP Perry (BFA '04) and I decided to make this Snickers Spec Commercial: http://vimeo.com/105404401 We had a ton of fun making it, and are excited to make more! Thanks to Michael Lockridge (BFA '05) and Michael Moragne (BFA '04) for working on it, and to the amazing Kevin McShane (MFA '02) for starring in it.  Kevin McShane (MFA 02) “Here's the next installment of my Weird Couple Things series with Justin Abarca and Elizabeth Triplett. Thanks to everyone who contributed ideas.  Here's the YouTube link : http://youtu.be/Fio7T6mjCbI “ The FSU Film School will hold open casting calls for Graduate and Undergraduate Films on:Sunday, September 14, 2014Sunday, September 21, 2014Both days are from 10:00AM - 7:00PM. No appointment needed. No experience necessary. All ages welcome.  What to expect at the audition:  When you come in, we will take a headshot and get some basic info from you (name, contact info, experience, interests, etc.). You may also bring a headshot and/or resume, but it is not necessary. Then you can choose from a selection of script sides we have available (~2 pages). You must audition from one of these script sides; no prepared monologs, please.  Then, we will bring you into a room where we will video record you performing the side you selected(you don't need to have the side memorized). Depending on how many people show up, the whole process can take anywhere from a half hour to about 2 hours. When the students are ready to start casting for their films, they will refer to the database and audition videos to find someone who fits their casting needs. If there is a match, the student will call you back in to read for a specific part. That's it! The FSU Film School is located in the University Center, Building A (on the north side of the Doak Campbell Stadium), off Pensacola Street at Champions Way, Tallahassee, FL.  For more information please contact Tony Ciarlariello at 850/644-7910 or by email at tony@film.fsu.edu. From Matt Pope (MFA 05)  Atlanta:  “My company (Modest) is looking to hire a full time producer/project manager. Needs to have solid film/video production experience in addition to general project management skills. If you think you're a good fit or know someone else you think might be please email us at jobs@modestATL.com.  Local hire is preferable but relocating someone is a possibility if it's a great fit.  matt@modestatl.com” The Explorers Club unveils a $100,000 Grant to anyone willing to showcase a research-savvy scientific achievement or never before seen worldly exploration.  Go here for information:   http://www.indiewire.com/article/attention-filmmakers-100-000-in-grants-could-fund-your-world-travel-documentary-20140908?utm_medium=feed&utm_source=feedburnerFrom Elias Inaty (BFA 13)  "I am absolutely thrilled to announce that my long time collaborator Gianfranco Settecasi will be premiering Uncle Giff's Christmas Special this December at the legendary Gene Frankel Theatre. As many of you might already know, I got my start in the arts doing local theater productions in Ybor City, Tampa, Florida. Gianfranco and I would spend summers putting on shows in a small black box theater just for fun and have since worked on each others film and theater projects whenever we could.  Well after a successful workshop and several revisions, we have been invited to showcase the project off-broadway! Expenses for the stage itself have been covered, but, as you can imagine, putting on a show in New York City, even on a modest scale, requires an incredible amount of dedication, organization and financial support. My team and I are currently in the process of finding donors to help fund this project. You can find all the info you need on our kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1144857164/uncle-giffs-christmas-special   Inspired by live-action television specials from the 50's and 60's, Uncle Giff's Christmas Special is a tuneful, sneering homage presented as a "live broadcast" television extravaganza, a tribute to early live variety television, and also to the characters and irreverent humor of Patrick Dennis' Auntie Mame(1958). It is a piece that is very close to my heart, has been an absolute joy to develop, and is something that I simply cannot wait to share with a broader audience through this production.  I hope you can contribute to our kickstarter, but most of all I'd love to see any and all FSU alumni come out this December to see this film/theater fusion Gianfranco and I worked so hard to get to the stage." Just learned of a production guide for Georgia:   http://www.ozonline.tv/oz_sourcebooks1_gfvs.htmlLots of good information for anyone thinking about ATL.  FSU CMPA Screenings & Awards Update – September 11, 2014  Unveiled (BFA Thesis 2012 Courtney Harmstone) was selected for screening at the Moondance Film Festival, September 25-28.
