Today, 17 students and graduates of Stevenson University’s Department of Film/Video went down to the Maryland Film Festival to spend the day watching movies.
Before they started their movie marathons, however, they first met with Lofty Nathan, director of the acclaimed new documentary 12 O’Clock Boys, which had its Baltimore premiere at this year’s film fest, for an hour-long discussion about filmmaking.
Here are two photos of the students sitting around talking with Lofty Nathan and Jed Dietz:

Ishai Setton, Los Angeles-based director (The Kitchen, The Big Bad Swim, Three Days of Normal) and editor (Glee and Artifact), was our Spring 2013 Artist-in-Residence. He came out from L.A. for two days: April 27-28, 2013.
He screened The Kitchen on Saturday, April 27, and then screened and watch 4 Senior Film/Video projects and gave feedback on them the next day, while also leading a discussion about work and life in Hollywood.
A good (and informative) time was had by all.
All photos in which I (the bald man) am present were taken by Jose Sarmiento, SU Film/Video Class of 2013.

I’m attending NAB for the first time, and spent the weekend in a conference called Technology Summit on Cinema, sponsored by SMPTE. Much of the time was spent discussing why HFR (high frame rates) are the future of filmmaking, in tandem with 3D. I’m not sure I’m convinced, but there’s nothing wrong with a healthy skepticism, is there? I share here some photos from the conference. If you’re curious, later, contact me for the pdfs of the powerpoint presentations.
