Rizky Rahadianto '15 gives us the low down on his upcoming thesis film, Mild Medium Hot.Read More
Emma Gross and I first meet at one of the circular tables in downstairs Usdan. She places a box on the table with (presumably) her own handwriting on it and a small flower arrangement with a card attached. It isn’t until later that I gather that the flowers are a congratulatory gift from her parents on finishing her filming and the box contains film stock that she needs to send to the color lab. Unfortunately, it is Veteran’s Day so it can’t be sent out quite yet but this shouldn’t worry Emma—she’s been extremely diligent throughout the entirety of her thesis process in terms of getting things done to the nine and on time.Read More
What if I told you two Wesleyan alums just scored a major development deal with Comedy Central? You might say that's "chill" or "dope." However, what if I told you these alums graduated less than 3 years ago? Chill and dope, sure, but insanely impressive, absolutely.
The project titled THIS OLD THING is written by and stars Caroline Fox '12 and directed by Daniel Obzejta '12. The series is about a manipulative young woman and drug-addicted nurse who form an unlikely alliance, wreaking havoc on a sleepy nursing homeRead More
Tyler and Connor are Wes alums- Tyler is '08 and Connor is '10. And, if you couldn't tell from their shared last name, Tyler and Connor are brothers. Wesleyan alum brothers who do film, and are damn good at it.
This Thursday (11/6), at 8 PM, Conner and Tyler Byrne are coming to the Goldsmith Cinema for a screening of their newest short, "Four Eyes," followed by a Q&A session.Read More
Wesleyan Film students prove time and time again that yes, there are things you can do with a degree in film. I had a chance to sit down (…or g-chat…) with one of these students: Annalora Von Pentz (’14), a Wesleyan graduate of the Film Studies program. She dishes out some advice, offers me a writing job in a hypothetical film about her life, discusses her senior thesis, and hints at a very cool project she is working on at the moment.Read More

You may remember Henry Hall '14 as the lead singer of Wesleyan band, Grand Cousin, or as the director/actor/singer in his Honors winning thesis film, There's Nothing Wrong with Me.
For all you Hen-atics out there, I have good news-- Henry is working on his new EP and, taking a cue from Queen Bey, he's got some videos to go with that falsetto goodness.
This past Sunday I had the pleasure of working on his latest music video for his track, Fake Words in Mt. Kisco, NY. The premise of which had some unique inspiration. Erin and Emmett (pictured above), have been best friends since they were born, which was only 10 years ago, but still. The Fake Words music video marks their third fake wedding to date (Let's all collectively say "Aw,") but this is the first time they've had Henry Hall as their wedding singer.
With Jack Coyne '13 directing and the help of other grads like Annalora Von Pentz '14, Spencer Burnham '14, and Elijah Cone '14, shooting went pretty damn smooth. You can expect the music video's release in about a month or so, but to hold you over until then look above for a sneak peak courtesy of Oliver Citrin '14.
When I asked Raphael Linden, filmmaker extraordinaire '15, to come over to my house so I could interview him about his amazing stop-motion work, it was really just an excuse for him to bring his ferret Oswaldo over to meet my cat Picklez. What we found out was that cats and ferrets don't really get along. Regardless, I still forced them into a few dozen cute pictures, plus I got to learn a lot about the man behind the animation. Check out his latest works, Homunculus with Milk and Orifice with Flora, and if you're wondering "how does he do that???" read our chat below-- you can thank me later.Read More
