Film and Moving Image News

Date: Sep 2016

The first-year Film & Moving Image (FMI) students took second place in this year's annual LEGO Challenge. Congratulations to all of them for the great imagination and effort they put into their sculpture. Everyone did a great job, and we give a special shout-out to Erin Orwig, who came up with the original design for the piece. Congratulations to the Department of Business Communication, as well (also in the School of Design), which took first place. If you want to see all of the photos we took at the event, visit our Flickr site.

Today, Canon rep Lisa Gualtieri visited Stevenson Film & Moving Image (FMI) Professor Christopher Ernst's FMI201 (Cinematography I) class to demo Canon's line of EOS C100 Mark II cameras, which we just purchased. Pictured, above, are Lisa, Chris Ernst and assorted students in the seminar.

The new year has gotten off to an exciting start! A group of us in the Department of Film & Moving Image (FMI) - including students from all 4 years in the program and 3 faculty members (Chris Ernst, Dina Fiasconaro, and Chris Reed) traveled to Washington, DC, on Saturday, September 17, to visit the Newseum, an exciting museum devoted to the history of journalism (print, broadcast, and now online), including documentary films (which we study and make in FMI). We had a great time, followed by several hours of self-directed sightseeing in our nation's capital. 

Stevenson's Film & Moving Image (FMI) Department will host, October 26-28, Eileen Meyer as our Fall 2016 Artist-in-Residence. Meyer is a documentary film editor in Los Angeles. In 2016, she was awarded the Karen Schmeer Editing Fellowship and was nominated for the Cinema Eye Honors “Outstanding Achievement in Editing” Award for her latest film, Best of Enemies. The film was also a 2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize nominee and on the 2016 Academy Award shortlist for Best Documentary.

In addition to visiting classes, Meyer will present a lecture on her work on Thursday, October 27, at 7pm in the Soundstage (SD101) in the School of Design Building (11100 Ted Herget Way, Owings Mills, MD 21117) on our Owings Mills North campus, with a 6pm reception beforehand in the lobby of that same building. The event is open and free to all.

Welcome back to Stevenson! As the 2016-2017 academic year gets under way, the Film & Moving Image Department looks forward to working with students new and returning, alike. We have plenty of exciting opportunities, ahead, including visiting artists--in-residence, film festivals, and a field trip to the Newseum in Washington, DC. Stay tuned!

In the afternoon of that retreat, we invited a guest speaker, Amy DeLouise, to talk about inclusive pedagogy in the field of Film & Moving Image. It was a great day, with both a lot of great work and a little bit of fun.
