Capella 2020

Movie producers are the power behind the scenes, the ones who make the magic happen … or at the very least give directors the space to make that magic happen. Local producer Capella Fahoome (Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's JourneyMotherland, Notown) has compiled an impressive body of work, especially in the documentary field, having collaborated with local filmmaker Ramona Diaz (a former artist-in-residence) and others. Come join us on Monday, March 9, at 6pm in the School of Design soundstage, as Capella explains what drives her and how you, too, can learn the secrets of cinematic enchantment, in a presentation she calls “The Outsiders Guide to Filmmaking ... and Life in General (or Exploring a Path for the Rest of Us).” The event is free and open to all.

Beyond her Monday night presentation, Capella will be on the ground with Stevenson Film & Moving Image students from that Monday morning through Wednesday afternoon.

Alex Bickel

What is color correction? In today's world of digital cinematography, it is an ever-more important process of refining the on-screen image in post-production, creating the final look of the movie before release. Colorists, working closely with directors and cinematographers, perfect the image of the film, an image that these days is shot with an eye towards exactly this collaboration. Enter Alex Bickel, who has forged quite the career in this area, working on projects that include such recent masterpieces as The Big Sick, Moonlight, Lady Bird, Private Life, The Old Man & the Gun, Mid90s, If Beale Street Could Talkand Hold the Dark, among many others. Join us as Alex presents Jonah Hill's directorial debut, Mid90s, and discusses his career.
