32nd Annual College Television Awards

Four former graduate students from Florida State University’s College of Motion Picture Arts scored big at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Foundation’s 32nd Annual College Television Awards held in Los Angeles on Saturday April 9th.

FSU alums Stephen Griffin and Jaye Sarah Davidson were awarded first prize in the “Outstanding Children’s Program” category for their work on Clay Hassler’s thesis film The Planeteer. FSU alum Allison Leger was awarded first prize for “Best Use of Music” for her work on Akil DuPont’s thesis film Underground, which also took home the prestigious Bricker Humanitarian Award. Finally, FSU alum Christopher Holcomb was on hand to accept the academy’s second place trophy in the Comedy category for his efforts on Bobby Marinelli’s thesis film Waking Eloise.

Griffin, Holcomb, and fellow FSU alum David Spence (who helped write The Planeteer) remained in the Los Angeles area after the awards ceremony to conduct casting calls for their upcoming feature film, Roswell FM. A romantic comedy about the quirky characters at a radio station focused on the paranormal, Roswell FM was written by Spence and will directed by Griffin and co-produced by Holcomb. The film is scheduled to shoot on location in Roswell, New Mexico in late July 2011.

First days at the office

Dave and I have set up shop at the 310 House Production office in Las Cruces, New Mexico. We've been working diligently on preparing for our trip to LA next week. The trip, which we hope to be a productive one, will start with the College Television Awards on April 9 where Chris and I will collect awards for our producing efforts on two thesis films. Throughout the week of April 11, we will meet with various industry professionals: agents, producers, and a VFX supervisor at Sony to get advice on the film. Our trip will culminate with the first casting call for the film on April 13 in West Hollywood. When we return, we'll have our first press conference for the film in Roswell.
