It was a success all the way around for the DFP students attending the New Orleans Film Festival. The umappable team’s festival premiere weekend got off to a great start with a profile in Wired magazine that featured a Q and A with filmmakers Diane Hodson and Jasmine Luoma. It ended on an even higher note with the team taking home the Programmer’s Artistic Vision Award. Congratulations to Diane and Jasmine on an amazing film launch!
2nd year student Bryan Campbell also came home a winner. Bryan’s pitch of Looking for Trouble, a film he is co-directing with Caroline Cuny, took top honors in the Pitch Perfect competition. The contest included students from the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Loyola, the University of New Orleans and Dillard University. Bryan’s win earned $1000 in prize money that will go towards the completion of the film. This marks the third time a DFP student has participated in the competition and the third 1st place win.
