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.

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.

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had the most pleasant and exciting of holidays. Enjoy this sample of work from our Sophomore students in the Fall 2014 FMI201 class - "Cinematography I: Black & White."

Hollywood Screenwriter Jonathan Aibel (Kung Fu PandaMonsters vs. AliensKung Fu Panda 2Alvin and the Chipmunks: ChipwreckedThe SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water) took time out of his busy schedule to speak with students in the FMI211 (Basic Screenwriting) class today, via Skype from his home in Los Angeles. It was a great opportunity for our students to hear lessons about writing and networking from someone who has spent the past 20 years building a successful career in the movie business (starting first in TV, with King of the Hill). Thanks, Jon!

FMI101 students Jamie Barthol, Keith Brown, Jessie Dubyoski, Ryan Kight, Patricia Lai, Mike Manfredi, Rebecca Morris, Jasmine Moses, Colleen Shipley and Emily Soller have fun at work with our Sony HXR-NX5Us and NX3s and our Final Cut Pro editing stations as they shoot and edit a project for Assistant Professor Dina Fiasconaro's class.
