From Dean Reb Braddock:   “Happy to announce we bumped up our ranking in the "Wrap" to number 13. Congratulations to you all for making this the best film school ever! Check out the online magazine here: https://www.thewrap.com/collegewrap-2019/

From Paul Cohan (Director Torchlight Program):  Florida State University’s annual screening of a veteran-themed film in honor of Veterans Day will take place off campus for the first time in an effort to broaden community outreach. The event, which previously took place at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall, is in its ninth year of existence and was originally created to heighten awareness of veterans’ issues among the campus and local community.  This year’s screening is being presented by the College of Motion Picture Arts Torchlight Cinematheque in association with the FSU Veterans Alliance.  “Above the Best,” an immersive documentary-narrative feature film, will screen at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at CMX Cinemas Fallschase. The event is open to the public, and admission is complimentary. “Above the Best” offers a stunning, immersive ride with an Apache gun ship pilot during his year in the fight within the Hindu Kush Mountains and the Korengal Valley. Through actual, aerial combat footage and corresponding video from soldiers on the ground, the film brings the audience into the cockpit and on the ground at the same time like no other film in history”

From Oualid Mouaness (MFA 97) “The film ”1982” we made about Lebanon is touching hearts and minds in Europe, first at Festa del Cinema di Roma<https://www.facebook.com/romacinemafest/?__tn__=K-RH-R&eid=ARCNuSnxgBXcpD9JxlDZQ8R-qfCjdN2VNqCC7AigN47XWUMmKEcgFVH1uN3jYyz22t98D8ED7VJySVlZ&fref=mentions&__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARCNpVrL07rrIgDB-RBx4yBbP3CWmlLXg0kp47gQcRAVInPCUis9N0m6-M0vaURPXcrTNpLsgF-GdDtiQdUTtU_U8mBZGc3EhWMsJEnR7KWvaufFjawz1-ahAMg3NSBMM0MrwOXoWj3J7FqFMRJzTNpAKRyNwyFV_Idk-eYhUsR8HtjqxhsizLKbpl4Nu8PQDKA0laQgxfPQpySA0ILc4naCkNWKaEkVxhSlxm8YfWAO9y4> for its European Premiere, and now at Festival Cinemed<https://www.facebook.com/cinemed.lofficiel/?__tn__=K-RH-R&eid=ARCKihjYIUelxkKeZDiTSCt_t_RmTXfJ5is_glPMltBBtvz13-eS2R2-cajZzUFkOkrghYi3A6PZT_0Y&fref=mentions&__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARCNpVrL07rrIgDB-RBx4yBbP3CWmlLXg0kp47gQcRAVInPCUis9N0m6-M0vaURPXcrTNpLsgF-GdDtiQdUTtU_U8mBZGc3EhWMsJEnR7KWvaufFjawz1-ahAMg3NSBMM0MrwOXoWj3J7FqFMRJzTNpAKRyNwyFV_Idk-eYhUsR8HtjqxhsizLKbpl4Nu8PQDKA0laQgxfPQpySA0ILc4naCkNWKaEkVxhSlxm8YfWAO9y4> Montpellier for the French Premiere of the film. A beautiful write up here.  https://tinyurl.com/y2wtvuru

From Jason Benoit (BFA 06). “ I'm Luke Greenfield’s  writing and producing partner. We're in post on a movie for Focus Features/Universal that I rewrote and produced right now called HALF BROTHERS that we just shot in New Mexico over the summer. And we're rewriting a project for Sony that Amy Pascal is producing with us called THE LAST BACHELOR.”

From Mark Bendeck (BFA 09) “Back in 2017 I had the opportunity to work as a Boom Operator on the feature film, “Wendy”, Ben Zeitlin’s follow up to Beasts of the Southern Wild. I also Produced some of the reshoot days here in Los Angeles this earlier year. After a lengthy post process the film will finally be premiering on February 28, 2020 at either The Sundance Film Festival or the Berlin Film Festival. Fox Searchlight’s official “Wendy” synopsis reads: “The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this ragtag epic from Benh Zeitlin, director of ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild.’ Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.”  Full article below :-)

From Layne Insleman (MFA  17) “I don't post much on Facebook,  as I keep my life fairly private (and also don't like to be so conceited as to assume people are at all interested in what I do or say... Just because I like it doesn't mean everyone else does!). But, I do know that part of working in this industry is promoting yourself and keeping your name out there, so here we are. I got included in this website that features new and up-and-coming artists in their respective fields, to increase their visibility. It was fun to do the interview and I guess since it's published, I might as well share it here. https://tinyurl.com/yyxrr67y

From Jaye Sarah Davidson (MFA 10) “The Creative Agency, Ideas United (  https://ideasunited.com/<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/ideasunited.com/__;!5Xm4_O-4tfk!kaP3jQKVQgd3N6xdcUCX5lgRaD3pJnSwiEEaN_5GiKn_xuUvmnESFMfAq08yYDs$>), is looking to hire longterm freelance editors, colorists, and audio specialist. More money available to those who can work irregular hours such as weekends, early mornings, or late nights. If you are interested, please email me at jayesarahdavidson at gmail.com<mailto:ayesarahdavidson at gmail.com> with your resume.   I will forward to the Post Supervisor.”

And another post from Jaye Davidson:  “They have “created two people manager roles at Turner Studios to help train and develop our below-the-line craftspeople in production. The two main considerations we’re balancing are direct experience + expertise in these roles vs. experience building and leading trainings, especially for highly technical or creative roles. Ultimately, we think we’ll be best off emphasizing the latter skill set.  We thought of you and immediately – we’re hoping at least a few folks come to mind from your network. Below is the job posting; let us know if you know anyone who might be a good fit and/or if you have any questions about it. https://careers.warnermediagroup.com/TGnewUI/Search/home/HomeWithPreLoad?PageType=JobDetails&partnerid=391&siteid=36&jobid=841479&_ga=2.67741015.730629092.1571669510-1154538186.1566558366#jobDetails=841479_36   “
“PA’s Needed: The film called The Tiger Rising  is shooting in Thomasville, GA. We're looking for someone to start next week and then stay on the duration of the film which is set to wrap on 12/20<x-apple-data-detectors://0>. We shoot Monday - Friday at 12<x-apple-data-detectors://1> hour days.
