I'll be learning dailies/Avid workflow construction (syncing, applying CDLs, backing up master files to LTO, etc) in tandem with digital engineering (building computers, calibrating monitors, delivering necessary hardware to DITs). I'm working with a positive, knowledgeable team that will help me expand my knowledge base considerably and a company that invests in its employees potential contributions. The company has done post workflow and/or dailies for Whiplash, Fargo Television Series, 12 Monkeys Television series, and many more exciting projects are in the pipeline.” Save the date:  Film School Filmmaking 3 projects will be screened at the Student Life Center at 7 PM on Thursday, March 5. From Rik Swartzwelder (MFA  95)  “Well, I guess that -- despite all odds -- Old Fashioned made a little box office history over the weekend. Already clearing $1 mil, it's the biggest opening ever for a faith-based film (less than 300 screens). But, to me, the greater stories are the reports we're hearing from all over the country from folks that (in addition to entertainment) are finding a measure of healing and hope and wholeness from the film... like the troubled couple that told me through tears of the film's impact on them... or the 30 kids that got dressed up and drove over an hour because they want to believe that love can be about more than objectification... THIS is why we fought so hard to make this film and get it in theaters.  We are now expanding (adding almost 100 new screens)... and one of those is in Tallahassee :)!!!  Opening Friday, February 20! Tallahassee Mall 20    2415 North Monroe Street Tallahassee, FL 32303 - See more at: http://www.oldfashionedmovie.com/theaters#sthash.GvSZJXYX.dpufUpdated theatre list:  http://www.oldfashionedmovie.com/theaters From Nikki La Rosa (BFA  98)  “A Lotus Blooms in Tampa Bay:  An exhibition of fine art and photography by Nikki La Rosa.   Artist Reception:   Sunday, February 22, 3-5 PM, Bamboozle Ta Lounge, 109 N. 12th Street, Tampa, FL  33602.  On exhibit fro February 12 through March 12, 2015   all 310 466 1081 for more information. From Joshua Mikel ('07 actor) “I directed/ cut this video for The Wind and The Wave (RCA/ Sony) and their cover of Regina Spektor's "You've Got Time" (the theme song from Orange Is the New Black).

USA.  It’s a start up feature animation company making global CG films that grew out of SEGA Entertainment.  We recently announced we’ll be co-producing a hybrid live-action/CG film with Sony Pictures Entertainment about Sonic the Hedgehog (think Smurfs but bigger, better and bluer!).  In addition, I have several animated features in different states of development in our Burbank development offices.  Production is all handled in Tokyo, where I travel about 3 or 4 times a year and there’s a staff of about 140 artists, technicians, animators, etc.  It’s all still a start up and has plenty of start-up problems, but I’m really enjoying it.  I do miss teaching and the students I came to know.   I hope everyone is well and tell people all the time about how good the program is at FSU.  Make good films and television.  Best of luck everyone.” From Jeanene Carvajal (MFA 99)  “A good friend is looking for an apartment to sublet for two months in the Atlanta area.

Blood First chronicles the lives of two brothers who haphazardly follow their father's footsteps into a dangerous life of crime and violence. When faced with serving lengthy prison sentences for their crimes, one brother chooses to cooperate with the prosecution while the other does not, testing the true meaning of loyalty, honor and blood.”  From Karchi Purlman “I am pleased to let you know that the curators at YourDailyPhotograph.com (AKA Duncan Miller Gallery in Santa Monica) have chosen to feature one of my fine art pieces. YourDailyPhotograph.com is a resource for collectors of fine art photography with membership in over 74 countries.  This allows me to be in the company of such legends as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Gursky, Richard Misrach, Andre Kertesz, which is of course is super exciting to me. :)  Click here to see the image: http://eepurl.com/bedrZX” From Cait Schull (MFA 12)  “I emailed you a while back about Richie Rich being on YouTube, but it's excitingly been moved to Netflix!  It's set to premiere on February 20th on Netflix and the more people that see it, the more likely we are to get a second season.  I was the Office PA on this show and Alex Cameron (BFA 2013) was also a PA on the show for a while.” From Jaye Sarah Davidson  (MFA 10):   Worried you missed out on Cootie Contagion?  I have no fear, you can watch the film here: http://iheardin.com/2015/02/14/spreading-love-interview-writer-director-cootie-contagion/  Also, please check out my interview with writer-director Josh Smooha (BFA 12).” Julia A. Friedman (BFA 2014), Ines Corina Michelena  (BFA 2014), and Mana Handel (BFA 2014) are working on a new short film entitled "Kings," written by Julia. Produced by Fernweh Films, our new production company that strives for diverse storytelling, this short film is sure to provide a unique lens with which to view skateboarding culture. We're really excited about the project as it's our first independent short after film school. Shooting the first week of April in Tallahassee, FL, we're working with a crew primarily made up of our former classmates. But we still need the help of our friends, our family, and the awesome FSU Film School alumni network to help make this movie happen! Please share and support the project at http://bit.ly/kickstrtKings. From Malcolm Pelles (BFA  00)  “Join us for a FREE staged  reading of a new comedy from Malcolm Pelles.  Inspired by real events., United We dance is about a stripper named Kate, and her hilarious attempts to organize her fellow dancers into a labor union.  Monday, March 16, 7:30 PM at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Washington, DC.  Go to http://www.crashofrhinos.org/shows.html for more information.” From Ji Im (BFA  93)  “I will be attending the screening of "Brian's Dots" in Denton, TX next week - 2/20/15 at 5pm. This documentary video is about a young man I met in Kauai, Brian, 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, perhaps to share his inspiring story. He discovered he loved making artwork using dots which developed into his own unique style of pointillism.  I met Brian in 2007 at Kauai BeachHouse. I was inspired by what an adventurous traveler he was despite the diagnose of not being able to walk again. Brian had a serious accident when he was 16 but with determination and spirit he had a miraculous recovery and left for Hawaii in search of something more.  It was the last day of my scuba diving trip at Kauai and I had just met Brian, yet I gave him my video camera and asked him to record his travels and progress of walking. Maybe he chose Hawaii to share his inspiring story to who may have similar lifestyle. It truly was amazing to see Brian also discovered his love of making artwork using dots which developed into his own unique style of pointillism.” From Jeffrey Mandel (actor in many of our films)  “I'm acting in a two-character, one-act play written and directed by freshman English major Trevor Durham, assisted by sophomore theatre major Vanessa Contreras.  The other actor is senior theatre major Andres Robledo.  We are incredibly excited that we will be performing the show Off-Broadway at a festival of one-act plays.  To be doing a show Off-Broadway is a lifelong dream for me, one that I never thought would happen.  It would be like getting to do a part in a Hollywood movie.  I would really love it if the Film School students who have worked with me could see me in a stage role, and one long enough to develop a complex character.  It's the kind of play where saying nearly anything about the plot or theme will give away too much.  This is what we have been putting out:  "Joshua's (Andres Robledo) life was crumbling, until he stepped into Prosopon's store. The old man (Jeff Mandel) gave him the chance to alter his identity and live a new life... He'd simply wear a 'mask'. With nothing left to lose, Joshua accepted the offer that led both men down a path of redemption, struggle, and acceptance. Who will they be in the end?"  For students, we will be performing MASKS at FSU's very own Student Life Cinema on Saturday 2/21 at 4:00 P.M., three nights before it opens in New York City!  Donation is $3 at the door.  For those who can't make the Saturday showing there will be Thursday 2/19 and Friday 2/21 showings in Tallahassee performed at Westminster Oaks. Tickets are $10, and merchandise will be available for purchase.” Get a sneak peak at what will be playing at the FSU Student Life Cinema starting February 19th in our latest student-edited promo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0wyp-jVOBc&list=UU6oNns6UgtRkiQ12pf3buOA From Dylan Correll (BFA  07)  “this is for NYC. A friend of mine works as a video producer for this animal-centric website, The Dodo. They are looking to hire a full time editor for their video content. Details from Emily as follows: The Dodo is looking to hire a full-time video  editor (Premiere and basic After Effects) who both has solid editing skills and a strong editorial voice, especially to help us grow Facebook and raise visibility. Ideally, they can both convert our pre-existing content (like this  https://www.thedodo.com/pets-hugging-humans-799301212.html) into mashups, and also find and create their own mashups with footage sourced from youtube, matching our editorial voice while maintaining our animal welfare media standards.

Blood First chronicles the lives of two brothers who haphazardly follow their father's footsteps into a dangerous life of crime and violence. When faced with serving lengthy prison sentences for their crimes, one brother chooses to cooperate with the prosecution while the other does not, testing the true meaning of loyalty, honor and blood.”  From Karchi Purlman “I am pleased to let you know that the curators at YourDailyPhotograph.com (AKA Duncan Miller Gallery in Santa Monica) have chosen to feature one of my fine art pieces. YourDailyPhotograph.com is a resource for collectors of fine art photography with membership in over 74 countries.  This allows me to be in the company of such legends as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Gursky, Richard Misrach, Andre Kertesz, which is of course is super exciting to me. :)  Click here to see the image: http://eepurl.com/bedrZX” From Cait Schull (MFA 12)  “I emailed you a while back about Richie Rich being on YouTube, but it's excitingly been moved to Netflix!  It's set to premiere on February 20th on Netflix and the more people that see it, the more likely we are to get a second season.  I was the Office PA on this show and Alex Cameron (BFA 2013) was also a PA on the show for a while.” From Jaye Sarah Davidson  (MFA 10):   Worried you missed out on Cootie Contagion?  I have no fear, you can watch the film here: http://iheardin.com/2015/02/14/spreading-love-interview-writer-director-cootie-contagion/  Also, please check out my interview with writer-director Josh Smooha (BFA 12).” Julia A. Friedman (BFA 2014), Ines Corina Michelena  (BFA 2014), and Mana Handel (BFA 2014) are working on a new short film entitled "Kings," written by Julia. Produced by Fernweh Films, our new production company that strives for diverse storytelling, this short film is sure to provide a unique lens with which to view skateboarding culture. We're really excited about the project as it's our first independent short after film school. Shooting the first week of April in Tallahassee, FL, we're working with a crew primarily made up of our former classmates. But we still need the help of our friends, our family, and the awesome FSU Film School alumni network to help make this movie happen! Please share and support the project at http://bit.ly/kickstrtKings. From Malcolm Pelles (BFA  00)  “Join us for a FREE staged  reading of a new comedy from Malcolm Pelles.  Inspired by real events., United We dance is about a stripper named Kate, and her hilarious attempts to organize her fellow dancers into a labor union.  Monday, March 16, 7:30 PM at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Washington, DC.  Go to http://www.crashofrhinos.org/shows.html for more information.” From Ji Im (BFA  93)  “I will be attending the screening of "Brian's Dots" in Denton, TX next week - 2/20/15 at 5pm. This documentary video is about a young man I met in Kauai, Brian, 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, perhaps to share his inspiring story. He discovered he loved making artwork using dots which developed into his own unique style of pointillism.  I met Brian in 2007 at Kauai BeachHouse. I was inspired by what an adventurous traveler he was despite the diagnose of not being able to walk again. Brian had a serious accident when he was 16 but with determination and spirit he had a miraculous recovery and left for Hawaii in search of something more.  It was the last day of my scuba diving trip at Kauai and I had just met Brian, yet I gave him my video camera and asked him to record his travels and progress of walking. Maybe he chose Hawaii to share his inspiring story to who may have similar lifestyle. It truly was amazing to see Brian also discovered his love of making artwork using dots which developed into his own unique style of pointillism.” From Jeffrey Mandel (actor in many of our films)  “I'm acting in a two-character, one-act play written and directed by freshman English major Trevor Durham, assisted by sophomore theatre major Vanessa Contreras.  The other actor is senior theatre major Andres Robledo.  We are incredibly excited that we will be performing the show Off-Broadway at a festival of one-act plays.  To be doing a show Off-Broadway is a lifelong dream for me, one that I never thought would happen.  It would be like getting to do a part in a Hollywood movie.  I would really love it if the Film School students who have worked with me could see me in a stage role, and one long enough to develop a complex character.  It's the kind of play where saying nearly anything about the plot or theme will give away too much.  This is what we have been putting out:  "Joshua's (Andres Robledo) life was crumbling, until he stepped into Prosopon's store. The old man (Jeff Mandel) gave him the chance to alter his identity and live a new life... He'd simply wear a 'mask'. With nothing left to lose, Joshua accepted the offer that led both men down a path of redemption, struggle, and acceptance. Who will they be in the end?"  For students, we will be performing MASKS at FSU's very own Student Life Cinema on Saturday 2/21 at 4:00 P.M., three nights before it opens in New York City!  Donation is $3 at the door.  For those who can't make the Saturday showing there will be Thursday 2/19 and Friday 2/21 showings in Tallahassee performed at Westminster Oaks. Tickets are $10, and merchandise will be available for purchase.” Get a sneak peak at what will be playing at the FSU Student Life Cinema starting February 19th in our latest student-edited promo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0wyp-jVOBc&list=UU6oNns6UgtRkiQ12pf3buOA From Dylan Correll (BFA  07)  “this is for NYC. A friend of mine works as a video producer for this animal-centric website, The Dodo. They are looking to hire a full time editor for their video content. Details from Emily as follows: The Dodo is looking to hire a full-time video  editor (Premiere and basic After Effects) who both has solid editing skills and a strong editorial voice, especially to help us grow Facebook and raise visibility. Ideally, they can both convert our pre-existing content (like this  https://www.thedodo.com/pets-hugging-humans-799301212.html) into mashups, and also find and create their own mashups with footage sourced from youtube, matching our editorial voice while maintaining our animal welfare media standards. We also want the video editor to be open to exploring other forms of video creation,  whether it be diving into the Discovery archives that we've been given the keys to, or exploring other original video formats down the line. Contact emily@thedodo.com Screenplay Contest Deadlines Coming Soon:  Click on the name for more info.  Deadline  Contest 2/20/2015   The Script Fest   2/28/2015   American Gem Short Script Contest & Literary Festival /Partner: Write Brothers - 11th Edition   2/28/2015   A FilmMakers International Screenwriting Awards / Sponsor: The Radmin Company (14th Annual)   2/28/2015   Amazing Logline Contest, The   2/28/2015   1st TV Writing Competition   3/2/2015   Script Exposure Screenwriting Competition   3/20/2015 Breaking Walls Thriller Screenplay Contest FSU CMPA Screenings & Awards Update – February 19, 2015  Southern Roots (BFA Thesis 2014 Betsy Serral/Jill Somers [PR]), LUNCHSAQ (BFA Thesis 2014 Aubrey Danielson/Taylor Kidd [PR]), Hop Skotch the Funk Dumpling (MFA Thesis 2014 Khadif Sanders/Joel Black [PR]), Heyln Spring (MFA Thesis 2014 Noah Camenker) and A Blind Man (MFA Thesis 2014 Joel Black) were selected for Blue Ribbon Panel judging by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for the College Television Awards (Student Emmys).
