STEVIE U 72 2019 PHOTO

On Friday, November 8, 2019, the Department of Film & Moving Image screened the films made during the previous weekend's Stevie U 72 (a 72-hour film festival). The three judges – Stevenson University President Elliot Hirshman, Towson University Professor Jena Richardson and Howard Community College Professor Anthony Hoos – chose three winners, and the audience voted on their favorite, as well. Here is the list of winners, the films of which can be seen on our Vimeo site:

  • 1st Place: Torrey Dolan
  • 2nd Place: Tyler Albizo, Bryan Auman, Nick Hawdon, Kayla Moore and Camden Praisner
  • 3rd Place: Zoe Maliszewskyj
  • Audience Award: Torrey Dolan

The grand prize was an EOS Rebel T6i EF-S 18-55mm from our sponsor, Canon USA. Thanks, Canon! And thanks to the judges and all who participated.

Stevie U 72 2019

Come one, come all, to the November 8 screening (at 7pm, with reception at 6pm), in our Soundstage (SD101) in the School of Design, of the films that will be made this weekend as part of Stevie U 72, our annual 72-Hour Film Festival, run by the FMI Club. Canon is once again the sponsor of the event, offering us a lovely T6i camera as the grand prize. Student filmmakers work not only under the time pressure of writing, filming and editing a film in just three days, but are also given restrictions of genre, props and dialogue. It should be a great show, presided over by a three-judge panel that includes Stevenson University's President, Elliot Hirshman.

On Friday, November 9, Film and Moving Image Students in the NBS/FMI Club organized and presented a showcase of 9 short films made as part of the third annual Stevie U 72, a 72-hour film festival in which students, working in teams, have three days to write, shoot and edit movies. Each group has the same set of challenges, but a different genre. Stevenson's President Elliot Hirshman was one of three judges. The other two were Samuel Tressler IV (Class of 2008) and Jolie East-Miji (Class of 2013). The festival was sponsored by Canon. The videos can be seen on our Vimeo page.

The winners, who each won cash prizes of different amounts, along with various Canon-donated items, were as follows:  

1st:    Distaste for the Structure (Andrew Boone, Brian Brown and Lauren Scott) 

2nd:   Resonance (Laura Boellner, Alexis Harris and Deja Ingram) 

3rd:    The Search for Sound (Tyler Albizo, Bryan Auman, Nick Hawdon and Camden Praisner) 

Audience Award: Chesstern (Evan Bowen, Max Collins, and Greg Leonard) 

Last night's STEVIE U 72 – our second annual 72-Hour Film Festival, sponsored by Canon – was a resounding success. And the winners are:

  • 1st Place + Audience-Award Winner: Storytime, by Adrienne Civetti, Jessie Dubyoski and Brooks Gray
  • 2nd Place: Vengeance, by Kevin Pullias, Mariam Salahvarzi and Lauren Scott
  • 3rd Place: Home Early, by Josh Herrera, Alex Korty and Adam Vaughn
  • iPhone Winner: Dare to Travel, by Diana Williams

The judges for the event were: President of Stevenson University Dr. Elliot Hirshman, Vice President for Student Affairs (and former President) Claire Moore, and Stevenson alumnus and filmmaker Adam Oberfeld. 

Picture above, left to right, are: Adam Oberfeld, Jessie Dubyoski, Brooks Gray, Adrienne Civetti, Diana Williams, Mariam Salahvarzi, Adam Vaughn, Josh Herrera, Alex Korty, Elliot Hirshman, Claire Moore.
