There will be prizes awarded to one lucky raffler and for the winning Oscar poll, plus goodies to bid on in the ever-popular silent auction, and plenty of fun giveaways for the commercial breaks .

Whether you dress in your best Hollywood chic or in your hippest LA cool, a fun time is guaranteed as you rub elbows with our accomplished faculty, who have worked on some of Hollywood's most famous films, and our students who could be the Oscar winners of tomorrow.

Adam Hendricks - Producer Divide/Conquer
Divide/Conquer (pronounced "Divide and Conquer") was founded in 2013 and is run by producers Adam Hendricks & Greg Gilreath, and seasoned business affairs exec Zac Locke. Since its first film in 2015, the company has produced over a dozen feature films, most notably Magnolia’s’ “Lucky” starring Harry Dean Stanton (2017 SXSW premiere), Netflix's “Cam” (2018 Fantasia multiple award-winner) and upcoming “The Wind” (2018 Toronto International Film Festival), directed by Emma Tammi. Divide/Conquer first focused on creating short-form content such as short films (Michael Mohan's “Pink Grapefruit”, 2016 Sundance premiere), music videos, commercials, and branded content. The team then expanded into the long-form space by producing virtual reality projects, television (Netflix’s Emmy-nominated “Garfunkel & Oates: Trying to be Special,”), web series such as Carlos Lopez Estrada's “High & Mighty” (2018 Sundance Film Festival), and film.

Pip Ngo - Director of Sales & Acquisitions - XYZ Films
Pip Ngo is an entertainment executive with ten years experience in film, TV, and theater. After starting his career working for prominent Broadway producer Carole Shorenstein Hays on the Tony Award-winning revival of FENCES, he joined the New York office of CAA’s Film Finance Group. He moved to Los Angeles to work for Sierra/Affinity, first on the film side and then in acquisitions and development for its former TV arm. Pip transitioned into the technology space with theatrical distribution startup Tugg, where he expanded the platform’s acquisitions activities in the domestic film market. Most recently, he served as a Senior Manager with Vimeo’s content team, representing their interests in the indie film marketplace for their planned SVOD service.

Their television series "Lucky & Lori" is a half-hour dramedy inspired by their own lives. It follows two millennial women as they navigate the usual twenty-something struggles, finding their independence, advancing their careers, experiencing love, dealing with their traditional Indian and Cuban families, and realizing what it means to adhere to their culture, but also fit in with their modern American peers.  They are passionate about bringing more diverse content to television, and even though there is much more to be done, and more rounds to go, they feel like this is one small step in the right direction! “

From Livia Ohihoin (BFA 18). “So after graduating I spent 5 months in Germany saving money. I worked as a Casting Assistant for a Reality TV show, Film Catering kitchen assistant for a TV feature film, and Film Set Base Manager for an international feature film.  I was able to meet my money goal and successfully move to New York in January, living with alum Grace Stalley and a third non Fsu roommate.

From Lauren Bickers (BFA 06) “Hey All! I’m down in Northwest Florida (Panama City Beach area) to shoot a short film called EXTRA CREDIT about a young mother who makes a tremendous sacrifice in order to give her child a better life. We anticipate a 3-4 day shoot in March or April of this year in and around Bay and Walton County FL. I'm a bit out the loop in terms of local crew and talent, but would love to cast/crew locally and from nearby cities where possible. This is a low budget shoot, but positions are paid and travel and accommodations will be provided for crew as needed. For casting, please read notice carefully as some parts have travel/accommodations covered, whereas others assume local casting. For crew,  interested parties can email extracreditfilm at gmail.com<mailto:extracreditfilm at gmail.com> with the subject line: YOUR NAME - CREW POSITION INTERESTED IN. In terms of casting, talent is encouraged to apply via Backstage: https://www.backstage.com/casting/extra-credit-274627/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.backstage.com_casting_extra-2Dcredit-2D274627_&d=DwMFaQ&c=HPMtquzZjKY31rtkyGRFnQ&r=XK14IrgIaB-M4DhdHvEVmw&m=ifRt2NZNapNpVlgHj80wwHwbi9IryF0bkgtaUMekqhc&s=YOJC0elp84B8s0TI8t_nfp7p1k7UhWmGT8weSYUz760&e=> “

From Josh Cartwright (BFA 13) “From getting married to immediately moving to Pittsburgh, to a taxing job search, life has been crazy. The job search ultimately led me to accept a job at Trying Together, an early education nonprofit in Pittsburgh, where I am currently serving as their Digital Media Manager. Since I am relatively new to Trying Together, I was recently briefed on a video project that requires animation. If you could share/know anyone who might be interested in animating a series of five 1-minute videos for Trying Together, I would be grateful. The animator's responsibility would just be to animate, as an artist has already been hired to do the drawings. Essentially, the artist would send files to the animator for them to animate. Although we are a nonprofit, this would be a paid project and payment is negotiable.   If you are interested, you can reach me at c: 717-965-2807.  josh at tryingtogether.org<mailto:josh at tryingtogether.org>
