Students in the Film & Moving Image (FMI) first-year seminar created memory rocks, marked with inspirational movie quotes, for Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital as part of Stevenson's annual Mustangs Make a Difference Day, held last Friday, September 29. Pictured, above, are some of the students hard at work, and in the bottom right is FMI Chair Christopher Llewellyn Reed showing the rocks in their new home in one of the hospital's outdoor courtyards, where he delivered them earlier today.

Last night at the Creative Alliance in downtown Baltimore, as part of the annual "Best of Baltimore" showcase, three members of the Film & Moving Image class of 2017 – Chris Hessler, Rachel Pollock and Morgan Taylor – screened their senior-thesis projects, along with the work of students from other Baltimore-area institutions. Below is a photo of all who came out, including the directors and their faculty supervisor, Chris Ernst.

This evening, at Stevenson's Fall 2017 Involvement Fair, members of the National Broadcasting Society-Film & Moving Image club met new students to provide information about our activities. Upcoming events include a movie-trivia night and 72-Hour Film Festival (more information to follow in the future). Pictured, above, left to right, are: Bobby Morison (Public Relations), Will Johnston (Treasurer), John Travers (Secretary) and Adam Vaughn (President). We have a lot more members (and, yes, some women), but are always looking for more! The club is officially a local chapter of the National Broadcasting Society, which has an honors society, Alpha Epsilon Rho, attached. For more information, email Adam Vaughn or the club's advisor, FMI Chair Chris Reed.

Welcome back! Stay tuned for exciting information about what the Department of Film & Moving Image has planned for this year. In the meantime, check out the photos, above, from the set of Assistant Professor Chris Ernst's feature film. Class of 2017 graduates Rachel Pollock (Production Manager), Kara Stone (Key Grip/Gaffer), Gabby Sturgeon (Assistant Art Director) and Daniel Whitehead (Assistant Producer) – the only one not pictured – worked on Professor Ernst's film, produced by his independent studio, Bright Rectangle Films. The movie is an original adaptation of Fritz Lieber’s short story “The Hill and the Hole,” a quirky supernatural thriller set in the high desert of the Southwest. Principal photography took place on location in Colorado and New Mexico this July and August. The film will be completed Summer of 2018.
