Film and Moving Image News

First-year students Deanna Kinzie, Britain Castellano and Mikey Manfredi have fun shooting a moving-image project with the Canon t5i in Professor Dina Fiasconaro's FMI101 ("Cinema I: Storytelling") class.

On Saturday, October 11, faculty and students in the Department of Film/Video - along with other students from the School of Design - will travel to New York for a day-long field trip to visit the Museum of the Moving Image, one of the country's premier cultural institutions devoted to the study and preservation of film and moving image history. Filled with movie artifacts - from the 19th century to the present - including such cool items as an Edison Kinetoscope, a Technicolor camera, the spinning head from The Exorcist and De Niro's wardrobe from Casino, the trip is sure to be both informative and loads of fun, and a great opportunity to celebrate our new Film and Moving Image major.

Our bus will leave from Rockland Center on the Owings Mills Campus at 7:30am that day, then arrive at the museum in time for our 11:30am tour. Once the 90- to 120-minute tour is over, the bus will bring us into Manhattan for free time until our return departure at 7:30pm. A good time will be had by all. Below is a picture taken from the last time we went, in April, 2012, when our current Seniors were in their first year at Stevenson. 

From Wednesday, September 24, through Friday, September 26, Stevenson's Department of Film/Video will host filmmaker Kat Candler as our Fall 2014 Artist-in-Residence. Ms. Candler will spend her time here visiting classes, talking about her work and her success at adapting her Sundance-accepted short film Hellion into the award-winning feature of the same title. We will screen that feature on Thursday, September 25, at 8pm, in the Soundstage (SD101) in the School of Design building (located at 11200-A Gundry Lane, Owings Mills, MD, 21117). There will be a reception prior to the screening, at 7pm, in the School of Design lobby, and a Q&A with Ms. Candler afterwards. Both the reception and the screening are free and open to the general public.

Ms. Candler is now working on adapting another of her shorts, Black Metal, as her next feature. Since all of our students graduate with a number of completed short films under their belt, which they use as calling cards as they pursue careers in the field, we think Ms. Candler is an excellent role model to show them how it’s done. In addition, since Ms. Candler is also an educator - a lecture at the University of Texas, in Austin - we know she will be able to translate her experience into accessible lessons. What is especially impressive about Ms. Candler’s most recent achievement is how she was able to cast Aaron Paul (of "Breaking Bad") and Juliette Lewis (whose credits include Cape FearNatural Born Killers, The Other Sister and, more recently, August: Osage County) - actors of quality and renown - in this, only her third (and first high-profile) feature-length movie. We can’t wait for her to arrive and share her invaluable life and career knowledge with our students.

Welcome back to Stevenson! We have a lot of great activities planned in the Department of Film/Video, all of which will be posted here, so stay tuned! More info coming soon!

In addition to welcoming you back, we are also happy to announce our new major! Come join us as we help students specialize in our 4 career areas: CinematographyEditingProducing and Writing. Contact Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Chair of the Department of Film/Video, at 443-394-9543 or

Baltimore Sun columnist and host of WYPR's Midday program Dan Rodricks welcomed Stevenson Film and Moving Image professor Chris Reed to the show on Tuesday, Aug. 12 to remember legendary film and television star Robin Williams. 

Reed, a regular contributor and film critic for Midday, spent an hour discussing Williams' career and his legacy including featured clips from some of his greatest work. The first hour of the show was dedicated to Williams who had taken his own life the day before.

The segments from the show are available on WYPR's website
