Reb is on the front page of the annual Variety article about the top film programs!
From Sara Karimipour (MFA 18) “I started working at Disney Television Animation as an Apprentice Writer on Monday from a Work from Home capacity. It’s been a little strange to start a new job with totally new people in a virtual capacity, but it’s truly been such a wonderful experience. I was interviewing around right before this pandemic hit, so I’ll have to say, I’m very lucky and fortunate to have had good timing. My previous show wrapped on the day the Stay at Home Order was announced in LA, and I was offered this opportunity shortly after.”
From Raymond Knudsen (BFA 19). “During the summer and fall of 2019, I was a Field Producer and Camera Operator for the upcoming online series “4th and Forever: Muck City.” The show is launching May 14th on CuriosityStream. Read more about it on Deadline:
From Mike Culyba (MFA 98) “The Netflix documentary series "The Innocence Files" dropped yesterday. I edited Episode 4, "The Witness: The Murder of Donald Sarpy." I'm proud to have been a part of the this series and I hope you can find the time to watch. “
From Melissa Aouate (BFA 04) “Season six of @boschamazon dropped on @amazonprimevideo just in time for your quarantine’ing pleasure! Enjoy! And, congrats team.”
Congratulations to Lizzie Perrin (MFA Writing 19) who is currently a writer’s assistant at Adult Swim!
B-movie legend Roger Corman wants to see your quarantine film, Calling all idle Hollywood creative types and wannabe filmmakers. Roger Corman, 94, challenges you to make a short film for his Quarantine Film Festival.
From Paige Schexnayder (BFA ADA 18) “I’m currently working as a QA tester for Panic Button. It’s a video game studio that’s based in Austin.”
From Nikki Groton (BFA 11) “I think it's finally sinking in that NEXT WEEK is the virtual premiere for our film that has been years in the making. It isn't exactly the in-person gathering that we were expecting, but you can bet that I'll still be wearing that power suit I bought for the premiere [cid:image001.png at 01D61A08.48956860] I'll post more info on tickets, etc as soon as I have it. Would love for you to virtually join me in viewing Darkness in Tenement 45. Please join us NEXT WEEK for our film's VIRTUAL world premiere at the Sarasota Film Festival. This means that anyone will be able to stream the film from the comfort of their own home from Mon 4/27 - Sun 5/3! Tickets on sale soon
From Neil Butler (BFA 95) Hey internet! Our short film is a semi-finalist in this festival which kicks off tomorrow and goes through the end of the month. The Colorado Intl. Cannabis & Hemp Film Festival converted to an online event this year when they realized they weren't a bowling alley in Georgia. Not totally sure how the interface works yet but I'll let you know as it gets rolling. Pat McDonnell did an ace job lensing "Lost Tribe" with Lukas, Casey and Dextremidous proving more than credible as stand-ins for me and my college roommates circa '91...

Greetings from Film Florida! We sincerely hope that you and your families are safe and well in these trying times. The difficulties surrounding this pandemic are undeniable, but we believe it is still no match for our resolve, our determination, and our creativity. At the core of all our creations is a desire to connect to one another. We've lost some of that, but it's our hope to bring that back, even if it's in a small way. To that end, Film Florida is launching the COvideo-19 Project. We want to hear from you... and share your stories, 19 seconds at a time. So, send us a 19 second video you've made. It can be funny, serious, mundane, absurd. You can shoot it with your phone, camera - whatever you prefer. All we ask is that it's 19 seconds and be at minimum 720p, filmed horizontally. We will compile a collection of these videos and release them on social media as the collective voice of our community. This opportunity is open to everyone, not just Film Florida members. Send us a link to your finished video (turn on the ability to download) or email the video. All submissions should be sent to info at FilmFlorida.org. We will be accepting submissions until Monday, April 20th. Please do not include copyrighted material in your video. Anything you submit, you give Film Florida to use freely and without restriction.
