We had a wonderful trip to visit at Pinewood Studios Atlanta yesterday. Accompanied by 20 Film School students (selected by lottery, 4 per class—MFA 1 and 2, BFA 1, 2 and 3) we’d been invited by Stephen Broussard (MFA 03), Executive Producer, to visit the Ant-Man and the Wasp sets, involving 6 different Pinewood stages. Frank Patterson (President of Pinewood studios Atlanta) also gave us an overview of Pinewood. We all signed NDA’s so can’t talk much about it but the massiveness of this production was almost beyond belief! And while we were visiting various departments we were greeted by alumni working on the project: Brittney Gutheim (MFA 15) in the Art Department, Valerie Wicks (BFA 08) in Special Effects, and day player Carly Howard (BFA 17).

Ali Bell (BFA 99) produced 'Father Figures' starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms. Check out the Variety article and trailer, and make sure to see the film when it comes out in December!. http://variety.com/2017/film/news/father-figures-trailer-owen-wilson-ed-helms-watch-video-1202575827/

From Anthony Cabrara (BFA ADA 15) “Thus far, my time at Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) these last few months have been incredible. We just wrapped the third installment on the Thor franchise (Thor: Raganork), where I was fortunate enough to be San Francisco’s lead production coordinator, overseeing the backend departments in our facility here. It was my first ever Marvel project, and I am very excited for its release early November!.With that being said, I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I was offered and accepted the role of Head Of Coordination on my next film with ILM, Avengers: Infinity Wars! I will be working directly with our VFX Supervisor, Producers, and Client, overseeing the visual effects work being done across all four ILM facilities (San Francisco, London, Singapore, and Vancouver). This is an amazing opportunity that will give me the chance to travel with our VFX Supervisor for reshoots and visiting the other facilities, deal with global bidding and scheduling, as well as hiring of production staff and artists. Also I am a part of the ILM production mentoring program, working on educating production assistants, and junior coordinators as they transition to their next position..  Other than my normal day to day production work, I have also become a dance fitness instructor at our Campus Gym, which has not only been a great stress relief from the craziness of production, but also an amazing networking avenue, since a lot of the people who attend my classes are executives, producers and supervisors.”

From Whitney Clinkscales (MFA 15): “These past few weeks have been crazy, but I did want to share this update with you. I'm the Lead Producer on the new digital talk show series Grey's Anatomy: Post - Op, and we launched Wednesday, October 4th on ABC.com and Shondaland.com. In the weeks leading up to the 300th episode (which airs Nov. 9), Grey's Anatomy: Post - Op will feature host Gordon James — who Grey’s watchers know as Nurse Gregory — chatting with special guests from the cast, plus Grey’s Anatomy writers, producers, and crew members. James and Co. will get together to look back at over a decade’s worth of on-call room hookups, tragic deathsand rare medical mysteries that can only be solved by the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital docs. For more information check out LoveGreys.com or http://abc.go.com/shows/lovegreys<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__abc.go.com_shows_lovegreys&d=DwMFaQ&c=HPMtquzZjKY31rtkyGRFnQ&r=XK14IrgIaB-M4DhdHvEVmw&m=o8EFTyY7tL45v6_JXCA9DTY1OJ1JGaOgYLxstuSHJk8&s=Cz9lp_uQqix9h3YTdDqRePPq1fE4FPXvl3Er37P67_I&e=> every Wednesday. In episode one, we sit down with Shondaland's Music Supervisor Alex Patsavas and take a trip down memory lane to discuss 14 seasons of iconic Grey's Anatomy music.  mPress: http://ew.com/tv/2017/10/03/greys-anatomy-web-series/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ew.com_tv_2017_10_03_greys-2Danatomy-2Dweb-2Dseries_&d=DwMFaQ&c=HPMtquzZjKY31rtkyGRFnQ&r=XK14IrgIaB-M4DhdHvEVmw&m=o8EFTyY7tL45v6_JXCA9DTY1OJ1JGaOgYLxstuSHJk8&s=u32Ykh3glxJcOy5tCwFKLalv_zAVVUKdwpuqrA45EAQ&e=>”

Congratulations to Meghan McCarthy (MFA 98) who co-wrote and Executive Produced My Little Pony.  She also co-wrote the song that Emily Blunt sings in the movie!

From Adam Goff (MFA.Writing 11). “ Turns out my series, The Range, is a finalist in the 2017 Austin Film Festival Digital Series Competition! I've been invited to attend the festival and writer's conference and am damn sure going. I will be there October 26th – 29th to take part in the panels and workshops. Tim Driscoll (BFA '06), whose feature film "The Lengths" is available on Amazon Prime, will also be in attendance. We've become good friends over the years and are trying to produce a few different projects together. So, if any other alumni are going to Austin this year, we'd love to meet up!”

Flamingo Magazine has another article by local Steve Dollar  “Star-Power:  Five successful Seminole Filmmakers” which includes Wes Ball (BFA 02), David Robert Mitchell (MFA 02) and Aaron Moorhead (BFA  08). Also included are Kat Candler and Amy Seimetz.. You can read the article at http://www.flamingomag.com/2017/10/05/barryjenkins-directors/

From Corey Womack (MFA Writing 12) “My second to last two semesters of undergrad I was fortunate enough to intern at the Arkansas Educational Television Network on UCA's campus in the production department (Arkansas' local PBS affiliate). I learned an incredible amount from the producers and showrunners I worked with. AETN was -- to this day -- the most consistently professional, creative endeavor I've ever got to be a part of. But when graduation came, my eyes were on grad school and the opportunities beyond. I suppose it was for the best, I moved away. But you spend a lot of time thinking about that job you loved and left. Since returning to Arkansas I have applied to every job I felt I was qualified for at AETN -- but the timing has just never worked out. As of yesterday I have accepted a full-time Producer position there in Conway. I am very excited to finally return to that great program and work with, who I consider to be, some of the best storytellers in Arkansas. It has been almost eight years since I graduated undergrad and left AETN -- countless short films, boilermakers, lesson plans, feature scripts, table reads, pitch meetings, tractor commercials and other adventures -- I can't help but think of the Isbell lyric..."God bless the busted boat that brings us back..."

From Nicole Emanuele (BFA 07). “A new feature is out in the Hollywood Reporter today (October 4)  about my team and what we're doing over at YouTube. Check it out! Yes, those are my bosses pictured. Susan Wojicki and Susanne Daniels - a lady CEO and lady head of originals and yes I think that is very cool too!  Also I feel very lucky to get to say I am going to be a part of the Through Her Lens director's program next week in NYC to workshop a new short film. I am geeking out over the program and mentors. This is rad!!! Thank you Tribeca Film Institute<https://www.facebook.com/TribecaFilmInstitute/?fref=mentions> and CHANEL<https://www.facebook.com/chanel/?fref=mentions>!”  Read the Deadline article on the Tribeca Women’s Filmmaker Program at http://deadline.com/2017/10/tribeca-womens-filmmaker-program-2017-participants-1202186962/

From Jamie Blackband (BFA 17). “I’ve been living in Brooklyn for a little over two months now. In August, I was the Sound Utility for an independent feature called “Hearts Beat Loud,” starring Nick Offerman and Toni Collette. In September, I was a PA on “Cake Boss” for the TLC Network. This month I will be volunteering for the Imagine Science Film Festival, which will be screening science documentaries from around the world. And on weekends, I have been the Sound Mixer for shorts directed by alumni Armaan Uplekar and Ryan Brown. Life moves fast in the big city!”

Well, I’m not in Los Cabos catching giant fish; we ended up going to the ER instead of the plane. My husband was having heart issues; he is fine and we are rescheduling our trip.  But it worked out well, because I got to go to Atlanta to visit the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp!   Leaving for Washington DC in the morning to help host our exhibit at the Smithsonian and looking forward to seeing many of our DC area alums Friday evening!
