FMI Awards 2022

The annual FMI Awards––popularly known simply as “The FMIs”––are Stevenson’s answer to the Oscars! The 2022 show will take place live in our School of Design Soundstage on Sunday, April 10, at 7pm. Since attendance is limited for remaining COVID-related restrictions (and a sign-up link has been sent out by email to students), we invite any who cannot attend in person to join us on our BlueJeans livestream

So please watch, virtually or live, as we screen the films made by Stevenson students over the past academic year, with prizes given for best acting, directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, documentary and … best picture. The entire glorious affair is organized and managed by Stevenson’s FMI Club. This year's event is once again sponsored by Blackmagic Design, and presented as part of Stevenson University's ArtsAlive! program. Check out last year's movies on our Vimeo page.

Yesterday, in Chris Ernst's cinematography class, representatives from Blackmagic Design came to visit. A good time was had by all.

Yesterday, Richard Pelkowski and Jason Druss visited the Department of Film & Moving Image at Stevenson University - Christopher Ernst's FMI202 ("Cinematography II: Color") class - to present the latest equipment from their company, Blackmagic Design, including the Ursa and Ursa Mini. The FMI Department just purchased a 4.6K Ursa Mini, so it was a timely visit.

Pictured in the photos are Jason Druss and students Joe Dimaio, Jessie Dubyoski, Ethan Ehrhart, Joshua Herrera, Deanna Kinzie, Jonathan Kuchinskas and Ryan Scott.

Students in Christopher Ernst's FMI303 class - "Lighting" - pictured above, and FMI101 class - "Cinema I: Storytelling" - pictured below, work hard every week to perfect their craft. They use equipment like the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Kino Flo lights. It's always a good (and valuable) time.
