Film and Moving Image News

Last Friday, April 21, the Columbia Orchestra at the Jim Rouse Theater for the Performing Arts in Columbia, Maryland, performed Bela Bartok’s opera Bluebeard’s Castle, with videos created by FMI students in Chris Ernst’s "Lighting for the Camera." Above are photos of the prep work and actual performance. Students involved in the show are as follows: Arian Boroumand, Danny Crapanzano, Jessie Dubyoski, Chris Hessler, Jonathan Kuchinskas, Ryan Scott, Jasmine Sterling, Gabby Sturgeon, and Adam Vaughn.

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

We had a wonderful time with our Spring 2017 Artist-in-Residence Harlan Bosmajian, from March 6-8. Above photos are taken from Tuesday, March 7, at the reception and presentation he gave. [photos by FMI student Lauren Scott]

Cinematographer Harlan Bosmajian will visit Stevenson's Department of Film & Moving Image on March 6-8, and give a lecture on his work on March 7, as per the above poster. He has over 30 feature films to his credit, including La Ciudad, in 1998 (nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography) and Nicole Holofcener’s Lovely and Amazing (2001), which received praise for its digital cinematography (it was one of the first films shot on high-def to get a national release). Harlan has also shot films such as Saving FaceWinter Solstice (both released in 2005), Weakness (2010), Occupant (2011) and Backwards (2012), the last three using the RED camera, which led to a job on David Fincher’s Social Network as a Boston-unit Director of Photography. His most recent feature is Breakable You (2017), starring Holly Hunter, Alfred Molina and Tony Shalhoub. Harlan is an Associate Professor and head of the Cinematography Program at Emerson College in Boston.
