Film and Moving Image News

The Killing showrunner Veena Sud Skyped with students in the Department of Film/Video today. In attendance were students from FMI211 - "Basic Screenwriting"- and FIVTH312 - "Directing for Stage and Screen." Ms. Sud discussed her career in film and television, and the art, craft and industry politics of creating a successful drama series. 

Michael Tully's visit was a great success. Over the course of three days, we got to know him well. He imparted much wisdom, and now those of us who are going to the SXSW Festival in March this year look forward to seeing Michael again, soon. We also hope to meet up with our Fall 2014 Artist-in-Residence Kat Candler, who lives in Austin, Texas, as well.

Tonight, after a day filled with meetings (including one with our President, Dr. Kevin Manning, picture above with Michael Tully and Film/Video Chair Christopher Llewellyn Reed) and class visits, Michael Tully wrapped up his day with a screening of his last feature Ping Pong Summer. A good time was had by all.

The Department of Film/Video is excited to host filmmaker Michael Tully as our Spring 2015 Artist-in-Residence from February 4-6. As an actor, writer and director, Mr. Tully – who, though he currently lives in Austin, Texas, is a Maryland native – is a terrific mentor and role model for our students, as he has successfully carved out an independent film career that has seen his movies play at Sundance, SXSW, and the Maryland Film Festival (which has programmed all of his films), as well as be released theatrically. Mr. Tully’s most recent film, Ping Pong Summer, a coming-of-age tale set (and shot) in Ocean City, Maryland, stars John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Lea Thompson (Back to the Future), Amy Sedaris (Strangers with Candy) and Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking), among others. We will screen Ping Pong Summer – with a Q&A afterwards - on Thursday, 2/5, at 7pm, in the School of Design Soundstage. The screening is open and free to all. There will be a reception beforehand at 6pm.
