    Warren Report 4/25/13

    From Will Bigham (MFA 04)  “2012 was a busy year.  In the fall, my wife and I were hired to write, produce and direct a series of short films about the different seasons of marriage.  We were able to shoot on the Alexa, had an amazing cast and crew, and we're thrilled with the final product.  The shorts are currently being submitted to festivals, so I'll keep you informed if anything comes of that.  Also, this summer I was hired to direct my first feature, an indie teen comedy, "The A-List."  We just finished the mix at Skywalker Ranch, where I was fortunate enough to work with fellow FSU alum Dustin Cawood (MFA 03).  I had an amazing time working on the movie, couldn't be happier with the final product, and I'm thrilled to finally get rid of the stigma - first-time filmmaker.  Now I just have to get rid of the stigma second-time filmmaker.  The producers are now talking to sales reps and distribution companies, and as soon as a trailer is cleared for release, I'll let you know.” From Paul Comkowycz (Katie’s dad):  “FSU Film School Grad Katie Comkowycz (BFA 04)  got married last week to Kevin Moss.  Kevin is a DP in LA and Chicago.  The wedding was at the Don Cesar in St. Pete Beach and a lot of Kate’s FSU friends attended.” From Ian Edward Weir (MFA 07 and Post Production Specialist at the Film School)  “I composed my third score for a feature length documentary. This is my second time working with nature documentarian, Elam Stoltzfus, who has a new PBS documentary entitled the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition. The film will be playing all over Florida on PBS for the next few  months. The first score I composed for Elam was The Kissimmee Basin: The Northern Everglades, which played throughout florida and then nationally before Ken Burns film on the National Parks. Here is a sample of my music from the Kissimmee Basin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWkhAq5LbMYFrom Jon Swindall (MFA 01): “Check out the the next episode of "Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell" on Adult Swim tonight at midnight.  It's a workplace comedy set in hell.  Swindy Films produced it, JD Taylor (BFA 94)  was the first AD and Allison Troxell (BFA 94)  and Tom Capello's (BFA 95) Crazy Legs did the visual fx.  So - set your DVR's for a helluva good time! “ Watch for Bill Kelly (actor in many of our student films) who has a small part in Pain & Gain which opens tonight in Tallahassee with 9, 10:30 and 11:15 at AMC.  From Ryan Spindell (MFA 07)  “The awesome Eric Jaffe and I talk about filmmaking, film school, horror movies and politics. (P.S. We don't talk about politics.)   http://t.co/uUp1erN6yK   And check out this:  http://reviews.filmsnobbery.com/movie-reviews/the-root-of-the-problem/ From Richard Travis (MFA 91 and Projectionist/Archivist for the Film School:  “We received a wonderful donation from Fred Burkhart last fall. It is a DVD collection comprised of nearly every American movie serial of the sound era, plus a good number of silent-era serials. Movie serials, also known as chapter plays, were a standard film industry product intended for young audiences of the pre-television era, from the silents to the early 1950's. Back when there was only one screen per movie theatre and Saturday afternoons were reserved for kids' programming, along with the usual double feature (often including low-budget singing-cowboy westerns) and short subjects, movie theatres played one weekly 10-minute installment from a movie serial, all of which were action oriented adventures consisting of 12 to 15 chapters. Each chapter ended with some sort of 'cliffhanger' to lure the kids back next week (yes, movie serials are the source of that term). Modern film series like 'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones' were heavily influenced by the movie serials.  Fred Burkhart, an FSU alum and retired Air Force pilot, began his collection in the 1980's when the emergence of the home video era provided him the opportunity to finally watch the ending chapters of a movie serial he missed as a child because he had to go on an out-of-town trip with his parents. Having seen all the chapters leading up to the climax, he never forgot that he never saw the ending, and when movies became available on home video, he finally had the chance to see the action-packed last chapter of the serial he missed growing up. He got hooked from that point on and made it his mission to collect every movie serial he could find on home video.  The collection of over 200 titles is complete from 1934 on, and includes extensive records of the surviving status of virtually every American movie serial ever made. Thus, it is a truly valuable resource for any researcher delving into this realm of American film history.  Film music composer Greg Tripi is interested in working with FSU students and alumni on their films.  He has composed over 25 FSU shorts, including Academy Award winners Rundown, The State of Sunshine, and Emmy winner The Wall.  Greg is based out of Los Angeles, and has music credits in numerous features, television series, and video games.  Recent work includes Drive, Contagion, Spring Breakers, and Arbitrage.    tripi@greg-tripi.com323-236-0946http://www.greg-tripi.com/http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2179463/  From Ben Hethcoat (actor in many of our student films:  “After producing the feature film, DEAD DAD (deaddadmovie.com) with FSU Film alums (Ken J. Adachi (MFA 09)  Kyle Arrington (MFA 09), Eric Bader (MFA 09), Morgan Hall (BFA 09), Eric Clark (MFA09) , Thomas Lorne (MFA 09, and others!), I'm excited to have once again teamed up with a passionate team of Seminoles. I'm pleased to introduce a unique project I have recently Assistant Directed entitled SLEEPOVER LA - A pop-drama with DANCE shot at the Standard in Downtown LA.Fellow FSU alums include: Nicole Disson (producer / actor), Ben Hethcoat (asst. director / assoc. prodcucer / actor), Taylor Feltner (BFA 04) (assoc. producer), Jessica Wyckoff (PA), and Dexter McDaniel (PA).  We invite you to join us in unifying a community of artists from various cities throughout the United States, as we pull our talents together to create a new conversation between FILM and DANCE.  Please consider making a contribution to the KickStarter campaign for SLEEPOVER LA (no amount is too small)! We are almost there BUT if we do not meet our goal by the MAY 10th deadline, none of the funding will be received”.  I have a credit on a feature film!   Greg Marcks (MFA 00) emailed to say he’d just watched Queen of Versailles and I had a special thanks in the credits!  Due, I guess, to my posting the producer’s  search for crew in the Warren Report, with Caitlin Nicole Williams (BFA 10)  hired as a PA!  But still, I have a mention! From John Wikstrom (BFA 12)  “I'm working at a development company named Beneficial Entertainment in Culver City, headed by two producers whose credits include Act of Valor and Lovelace (was just at Sundance). It's brand new, so it's a good opportunity to put a foothold in a hungry company that's starting up. It's unpaid, but it isn't coverage or cleaning floors; it's much more like a light Creative Exec or Personal Assistant Position. Small office, (<5) people, so good for making an impression, and the producers are pretty open to helping you out.

I'm pleased to introduce a unique project I have recently Assistant Directed entitled SLEEPOVER LA - A pop-drama with DANCE shot at the Standard in Downtown LA.Fellow FSU alums include: Nicole Disson (producer / actor), Ben Hethcoat (asst. director / assoc. prodcucer / actor), Taylor Feltner (BFA 04) (assoc. producer), Jessica Wyckoff (PA), and Dexter McDaniel (PA).  We invite you to join us in unifying a community of artists from various cities throughout the United States, as we pull our talents together to create a new conversation between FILM and DANCE.  Please consider making a contribution to the KickStarter campaign for SLEEPOVER LA (no amount is too small)! We are almost there BUT if we do not meet our goal by the MAY 10th deadline, none of the funding will be received”.  I have a credit on a feature film!   Greg Marcks (MFA 00) emailed to say he’d just watched Queen of Versailles and I had a special thanks in the credits!  Due, I guess, to my posting the producer’s  search for crew in the Warren Report, with Caitlin Nicole Williams (BFA 10)  hired as a PA!  But still, I have a mention! From John Wikstrom (BFA 12)  “I'm working at a development company named Beneficial Entertainment in Culver City, headed by two producers whose credits include Act of Valor and Lovelace (was just at Sundance). It's brand new, so it's a good opportunity to put a foothold in a hungry company that's starting up. It's unpaid, but it isn't coverage or cleaning floors; it's much more like a light Creative Exec or Personal Assistant Position. Small office, (<5) people, so good for making an impression, and the producers are pretty open to helping you out. I'm working with Corey Womack and Dustin McLean (both MFA 12) , so we want to turn this into a Seminole Empire.
