STEVIE U 72 2020

Stevenson University's FMI Club once again has planned its annual Stevie U 72 Film Festival, screening the movies made during this 72-hour filmmaking event on Friday, November 13, 2020, at 7pm (screening link here, or click on the image, above). Sponsored and presented by Canon USA, this event is open to all. 

From 12pm on Friday, November 6, through 12pm on Monday, November 9, participating students, working in small, socially distanced crews, will make, following COVID-19 safety guidelines, short films that they write, produce, direct and edit after receiving the restrictions of genre and other elements at the Friday start. Once the festival closes, our three participating judges––Stevenson University President Eliot Hirshman, Spring 2020 FMI Artist-in-Residence Capella Fahoome, and FMI alumnus DJ Carmon (Class of 2017)––will watch the movies and choose their Top 3, which will each receive donated prizes from our sponsor, Canon. At the end of the screening on Friday, November 13, the virtual audience will then vote on their favorite, which will also receive a prize.

See you on the 13th!

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)
