TCF Faculty Activities

“Come on Down and Pick Me Up” by Nick Corrao won the “Best Drama Documentary Short” at the Docufest Atlanta film festival! Congrats! Here is the link for the awards list:
“Come on Down” is also scheduled to screen at the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, the New Orleans Film Festival, and the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival.

Bill Evans has a new article in The Evolutionary Review, an annual published by SUNY Press. The article is titled “Television News Audiences as Tribes, Television News as Moral Alliance.” Since this is an annual, the expected pub date is April 2013.

TCF has been invited to participate in the 2012 New Orleans Film Festival “Pitch Perfect” student film pitch competition! From their website: “Pitch Perfect is a competition for Southern film students where they can pitch an idea for a narrative or documentary film to a panel of film industry professionals. There is one section for Narrative film and one for Documentary. Students from Alabama, Loyola, Tulane, Wake Forest, University of New Orleans, UT-Austin, and more will be participating. The winners will get $500 and a MovieMaker software package.”

Based on an in-house competition, TCF selected Jazz Franklin for the documentary section, and John Avent for the narrative section. They compete this weekend, so send good thoughts their way. They will be coached by TCF faculty member Nick Corrao.
