Film and Moving Image News

Welcome back to Stevenson! As the 2016-2017 academic year gets under way, the Film & Moving Image Department looks forward to working with students new and returning, alike. We have plenty of exciting opportunities, ahead, including visiting artists--in-residence, film festivals, and a field trip to the Newseum in Washington, DC. Stay tuned!

In the afternoon of that retreat, we invited a guest speaker, Amy DeLouise, to talk about inclusive pedagogy in the field of Film & Moving Image. It was a great day, with both a lot of great work and a little bit of fun.

Students in Renee McSwain's Spring 2016 FMI301 ("Documentary/Promo Production") class made this 30-second promo for Baltimore's Historic Senator Theater. It's the second spot we've done for the theatre. The first was a "Don't Talk Before the Movie" PSA. This one advertises the many food and drink options in the surrounding area, especially in Belvedere Square. Like the first promo we made, this one will also play in the theatre before screenings. To watch the video, just click on the image, above, to be taken to our Vimeo site.
