    Warren Report 11.20.14

    Thanks for all the concern expressed about the shooting that happened at FSU’s Strozier Library last night.  The atmosphere on campus seems to be Seminole strong: being calm, careful, moving forward, having confidence in FSU’s ability to keep us as safe as possible and to respond quickly and appropriately in a crisis.   It is very surreal to consider that this happened in a university where we feel safe and secure.  There needs to be an end to this type of violence. Our sympathies to David Wiley, whose mom, Barbara Barrow, passed away on November 12.  If you would like send your condolences to David, you can sign his mother's guest book on Legacy.com. Here's the link. Congratulations to Antonio Mendez!  His wife gave birth to a healthy, charming and good looking fellow this week. They now have a Tallahassean in their family! From Meghan Robertson (BFA  03)  “Today I started working on "The Fosters" as an editor. Not an assistant editor. Not an associate editor. Not a co-editor. An EDITOR. This is a dream I've been working towards for 10 years.” From Marla DuMont (MFA 08)  “Hi everyone!  Please tune into the Season 5 Premiere of Mike & Molly on CBS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 8th at 8:30pm/7:30 pm central.  I am currently a Story Editor on the show, so please keep me employed!” From Andrew Bartels (MFA  08)  “I'm on NCIS: Los Angeles, as a Writer/Story Editor. My episode "The Grey Man" aired this week  and my "Holiday Episode" (titled "Humbug") will air on December 15th at 10pm, CBS. Tune in!”   The "Know More" film completed by the Film School students Director Jamie Klein , DP Ines Michelena , PR Katherine Barnette, andPD Kate Payne  and Student Government Association  will be implemented in educational presentations done by Refuge House (domestic and sexual violence center for Leon and seven other counties in North Florida) starting in 2015. From Noel Brydebelle (BFA 11)  “I've been working as the Script Coordinator on the next Lego animated feature with Warner Animation Group since September. It's a blast and, yes, there are Legos on almost every surface here.” From Miles Kahn (BFA  97)  “Hi guys. In what can only be described as PERFECT TIMING, I'm on the verge of releasing a Cosby-show parody web series I made with my Daily Show cohorts, Aasif Mandvi, Samantha Bee and Jordan Klepper.  While it has nothing to do with current Cosby headlines, it's certainly topical and funny and I'm really proud of it and want you all to see it.  Oh, and we need money to finish it. Please check out our Indiegogo page for it:  http://bit.ly/1zBptAq  And at the very least, even if you aren't into donating, please share this link. It's designed to address anti-Muslim bias so it sort of has a broader purpose (otherwise, we wouldn't be begging for money).  From Jacob Motz (MFA 06)  “I'm happy to share with you all my latest short film, DOUBLES, and even happier to do so as it's featured on a wonderful site, SHORT OF THE WEEK. I'm working my tail off to use this feature as a way to get this weird little film passed around as much as possible.  If you like it, please share it on social media and with your friends! Every extra set of eyes helps. I get to shamelessly self-promote a few times a year, this is one of them. I hope you enjoy..http://www.shortoftheweek.com/2014/11/20/doubles/ From Zack Ogle (BFA 13)  “Here is some info on an award for young women filmmakers that I'd love for you to share with FSU so more students are aware of it and apply.  THANKS!  The Horizon Award is an annual award open to women in college or who have just graduated, and who are interested in entering the film industry.

The script is on the longer side for a short film but there are minimal leads. It is dialogue heavy. Locations are actual businesses or occupied homes (including an operational airport) so set dressing will be minimal. The locations are a little geographically spread so we opted to have lighter days with more shoot days other than forcing longer shoot days with complicated company moves. It's a pretty good gig for right in between Thanksgiving and Christmas (which I know can be a slow time for production work...). This is a great opportunity for networking between L.A. and Florida filmmakers (especially if those in Florida are considering moving to L.A. at some point- would be a great lead to get in touch with productions out here). If interested, please contact Briana Frapart at briana@megamediaent.com ASAP."   FSU CMPA Screenings & Awards Update – November 20, 2014 Be Mime (MFA 2012 D2 Katie Harbin) was awarded Best Student Short at the Asheville Cinema Festival, November 7-10.

The writer/director, Stefani Saintonge, has won multiple awards for the short and, as part of participation in the NBCU Short Film Festival, it's now streaming on Hulu! Here's the link: http://www.hulu.com/watch/703372#i0,p4,d1. It's also available on demand  through Xfinity, Cablevision, Verizon, Comcast, Dish Network and Time Warner.” From the MFA class of 2015  “Have you ever found yourself in a catch 22 between a small budget and declining production value? The MFA class of 2015 is having a thesis fundraising campaign and needs your help.  While production equipment is covered by FSU, the allotted budget is often not enough for expenses such as actors' travel costs, food (especially for shows with tons of hungry extras), and a quality aesthetic in production design. Please support the future of FSU Film and make your donation here:http://spark.fsu.edu/Projects/118/MFA-Thesis-Fundraising-CampaignAny amount helps! Thank you!  From Kelsey Scott (MFA  99)  “RADITATICAL: A JOURNEY IN RHYTHM opens NEXT WEEK! There are just 10 days until Opening Night and  5 days left in our Indigogo campaign. If I've somehow managed not to tell you about this show, let me immediately right that wrong :)  RADITATICAL is a brand new, rhythm-based production (in the vein of STOMP! and Blue Man Group). It's high-energy, family-friendly, and something I’m proud to be a part of.  We premier at Hollywood's Montalban Theatre on December 12, for six shows only. You can get advance tickets here: http://bit.ly/1BIaolm. Use my Friends & Family promo code “Take5” for $5 off!

Very different movies, but both were very rewarding jobs.  Enjoy!” Go to http://www.projectcasting.com/news/now-filming-in-georgia/ to read about the shows filming in the Atlanta area. From Shane Spiegel (BFA 11)  “The film is called Of Fortune and Gold, and I was able to bring on a ton of FSU family. Shane Spiegel was the line producer, Jared Marshall (not film school but FSU) was director, Vallerie Hinkle (not film school but FSU) starred, Idan Menin  (BFA 12) was the DP, Caitlin Williams (BFA 10) was the production designer, Taylor Slingerland (BFA 13) was Art Director, Jessica Shobe (BFA 13) was set dresser, Jacob Abrams (BFA 11) was gaffer, Joshua Russell (FSU but not film school) was 2nd AD, and Edward Raines (BFA 11)  was Set Coordinator, and with a portion of the G&E package coming from Jacob Abrams (6k par HMI, Jokers, etc)It was a 5 week shoot in 4 states and 6 national parks.

The writer/director, Stefani Saintonge, has won multiple awards for the short and, as part of participation in the NBCU Short Film Festival, it's now streaming on Hulu! Here's the link: http://www.hulu.com/watch/703372#i0,p4,d1. It's also available on demand  through Xfinity, Cablevision, Verizon, Comcast, Dish Network and Time Warner.” From the MFA class of 2015  “Have you ever found yourself in a catch 22 between a small budget and declining production value? The MFA class of 2015 is having a thesis fundraising campaign and needs your help.  While production equipment is covered by FSU, the allotted budget is often not enough for expenses such as actors' travel costs, food (especially for shows with tons of hungry extras), and a quality aesthetic in production design. Please support the future of FSU Film and make your donation here:http://spark.fsu.edu/Projects/118/MFA-Thesis-Fundraising-CampaignAny amount helps! Thank you!  From Kelsey Scott (MFA  99)  “RADITATICAL: A JOURNEY IN RHYTHM opens NEXT WEEK! There are just 10 days until Opening Night and  5 days left in our Indigogo campaign. If I've somehow managed not to tell you about this show, let me immediately right that wrong :)  RADITATICAL is a brand new, rhythm-based production (in the vein of STOMP! and Blue Man Group). It's high-energy, family-friendly, and something I’m proud to be a part of.  We premier at Hollywood's Montalban Theatre on December 12, for six shows only. You can get advance tickets here: http://bit.ly/1BIaolm. Use my Friends & Family promo code “Take5” for $5 off!
