SCA alumnus’ film ‘Search’ goes to Sundance Festival

first_imgFor School of Cinematic Arts alumnus Aneesh Chaganty, the Sundance Film Festival held in Park City was more than just surprising — it was surreal. Within 24 hours of its premiere, Chaganty’s film, Search, received a distribution deal from Sony Pictures Worldwide, and by the end of the festival, it won the 2018 NEXT Audience Award.The technology thriller, which was filmed from the point of view of smartphone and computer screens, follows a father who is trying to find his missing teenage daughter. Photo courtesy of Aneesh Chaganty.“It was like fame for a week and a half,” Chaganty said. “Every restaurant we went into, every bar, every screening and every time we walked on the sidewalk, people would stop us and be like, ‘Hey, you guys made Search.’ It was an unreal experience.”However, Chaganty said the film’s reception at Sundance has been long in the making. Search, a technological thriller about a father trying to find his missing 16-year-old daughter, began as an idea between Chaganty and his writing partner Sev Ohanian in fall 2015. Ohanian, who graduated with an MFA from SCA in 2012, now works as an adjunct professor at USC and met Chaganty in a film production class. “He had a lot of creative energy to him and he seemed to have really smart ideas in class,” Ohanian said. “Most of all, he just gave off this vibe of really being like a hustler.”When Ohanian was approached by Google to make a short film using Google Glass, he knew he wanted Chaganty by his side. “I wanted to build their reputation for myself as one of those producers who would love taking on challenges,” Ohanian said. “Any time somebody had a film that they wanted to direct that was kind of over the top or really ambitious or almost reckless, I would always immediately sign up.”The team shot a short film titled Seeds entirely on Google Glass, which quickly went viral. The film also grabbed the attention of officials from Blumhouse Productions, the creators of Unfriended, a 2015 horror film that took place entirely on computer screens. Ohanian and Chaganty were invited to pitch a short film to the company, and developed the idea for Search, placing a family thriller in the same computer screen format that Unfriended was shot in. When Blumhouse offered to finance a feature-length version, Chaganty originally declined, but Ohanian encouraged him to take the offer.“I told them that what Aneesh means by no is that we’ll get back to you guys,” Ohanian said.After several months, the duo started writing a screenplay and assembling a team of editors and producers for the film, most of whom were USC alumni. “Search is really a USC mafia production, more than anything I’ve ever worked on,” said USC alumna Natalie Qasabian, who worked on the film as a producer. “It was honestly pretty incredible to have so many USC grads on a really collaborative movie.”Ohanian said that collaboration was the key to the movie’s production, as its unusual narrative style required extensive editing and careful planning. Before lead actors John Cho and Debra Messing arrived on set, the production team had already created a rough cut of the film with Chaganty playing every role to plan out the various websites, chat windows and popups that tell the story in advance. After filming wrapped, Qasabian, Chaganty, Ohanian and editors Will Merrick and Nick Johnson worked together in one editing room for nearly two years.When Search finally premiered in January, the team was thrilled just to put their project out into the world, although they did not expect the dramatic response they received at Sundance. “We made the movie with five people in single edit room and all of a sudden on our premiere night to have 550 people watching that movie on a screen way larger than the iMacs that we edited the movie on is already enough of a surreal experience,” Chaganty said.When the film was picked up by Sony, awarded the Alfred P. Sloan Prize for using engineering in film and chosen as an audience favorite, Ohanian said that the intense amount of work put into the film had finally paid off. Ohanian said that one of the best moments after the film’s release was receiving a compliment from the SCA Dean Elizabeth Daley at a staff meeting. “She said that it really warmed [her] heart to see that these students are such a team,” Ohanian said.The production team is currently in talks with distribution and marketing departments and plans to hold a nationwide premiere for the film by the end of 2018. They also plan on hosting a large screening on campus. “I remember sitting in [the Eileen Norris Cinema Theatre] a billion times a week as a critical studies student, and just being really pumped for the day that I could come in and screen a movie of my own,” Qasabian said.last_img read more

Beat writers predict unanimous winner in Syracuse-Georgetown

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (6-3) faces Georgetown (6-4) in the newest chapter of an old rivalry on Saturday at noon in the Carrier Dome. SU is coming off a win over Boston University while Georgetown has won four straight.At halftime, SU will honor Orange basketball legend Pearl Washington, who died on April 20 while battling a malignant brain tumor.Connor Grossman (6-3)Pearly afternoonSyracuse 73, Georgetown 65Regardless of how much longer the Orange and Georgetown can maintain a healthy rivalry, everyone in the Carrier Dome will be fully submerged in nostalgia. SU is honoring the life and career of Pearl Washington with a halftime ceremony that will surely deflect attention away from Syracuse’s lackluster start to the season. The Hoyas enter the contest having won four straight and will wear down SU’s interior defense. Expect Dajuan Coleman to get plenty more minutes than the nine he played against Boston University last weekend, and he’ll help the Orange on both sides of the ball as it skirts past Georgetown.Matt Schneidman (7-2)For PearlSyracuse 69, Georgetown 56AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIf anything else, the Orange is playing this one for arguably its most influential player ever. Add on the fact that it’s an old rival, regardless of how alive this rivalry is, and Saturday should be special in the Carrier Dome. Expect Syracuse’s depth to lead it in this one, with Andrew White being his normal self and a host of others chiming in. Rodney Pryor will put up points for Georgetown, but it’s not nearly enough as SU grabs a much-needed nonconference win. Published on December 16, 2016 at 10:32 amcenter_img Paul Schwedelson (7-2)Big East BrawlSyracuse 64, Georgetown 61Syracuse has played three major-conference opponents and lost to all three. The only team SU has beaten in Joe Lunardi’s most recent NCAA Tournament projections is Monmouth, predicted to be a No. 13 seed. The Tournament is a long way off but the quality of opponents the Orange has beaten up on is telling. GU’s Rodney Pryor is hitting 52.5 percent from 3 and while it seemed like a fluke when Boston University’s Cedric Hankerson hit 10-of-20, that performance exposed Syracuse’s perimeter defense. Pryor averages 20.6 points per game and is the player the Orange has to stop. In a contest between two former Big East foes, expect another nail-biter between two middling teams.

Confidence lacking, struggles continue for Wisconsin

first_imgAfter putting up some of the best numbers in the nation earlier this season, Scott Gudmandson hasn’t earned a win in his last 4 starts.[/media-credit]Losing is never easy to talk about.But in talking to his team – which is winless in its last six outings – Wisconsin men’s hockey head coach Mike Eaves used a real-life example to communicate a message to his group.“This may make no sense to our young players at all, but we we’re making an analogy and we said, ‘The value of your marriage in real life goes up when you go through hard times,’” Eaves said at his weekly press conference Monday. “And the value of the team concept becomes more real when you go through hard times.”These are certainly hard times for Eaves’ young team.The Badgers were outplayed in every facet over the weekend in St. Cloud, and the Huskies came away with the sweep.As a result, UW finished winless in the month of February. That horrid month followed a tremendously successful stretch where the Badgers won 12 out of 13 games.To no one’s surprise, the downward spiral has been difficult to handle.“The confidence level isn’t what it has been at other times during the year,” Eaves said bluntly.But Eaves is confident his team has the talent and wherewithal to resurrect its season before it’s too late. He believes the adversity will ultimately make his team stronger.“This young group has played very well at times and they know that they can beat anybody,” Eaves said. “It’s just been a tough stretch here. … We have to gather ourselves and see if we can get ourselves going on a roll.”For UW, the attention now turns to the final regular season series, where the Badgers and Colorado College Tigers will square off at the Kohl Center. The Tigers sit one point ahead of the Badgers for sixth place in the WCHA after taking three points from Minnesota Duluth last weekend.Eaves was not ready to state who will start in the net for the Badgers Friday, but he did reveal both Scott Gudmandson and Brett Bennett will see action over the weekend.Bennett allowed four goals in the loss last Friday, but it was Gudmandson who allowed seven goals to the Huskies in game two. After a phenomenal start to the season, Gudmandson’s play has dipped.“Goody – like the rest of the team – his issue is just confidence,” Eaves said. “It’s mechanics, it’s about getting back to basics.”Eaves is hopeful his entire team will get back to basics and show some life after such a demoralizing weekend in St. Cloud. Following Saturday night’s 7-3 loss to the Huskies, the players held a team meeting before reconvening with the coaching staff.The team openly discussed potential issues with the staff and made a list of things that need to be corrected.“We hope to see benefits of that as quickly as this weekend,” Eaves said.Eaves was asked Monday if one of the items on the checklist was simply overall effort.“Part of it was that,” Eaves said. “In everything that we do, that is our baseline. That is where we start. The guys aren’t fooling themselves. They recognize that, and that is a good thing.”last_img read more

Real Braced for Tough Atletico Sequel

first_imgAs soon as the final whistle confirmed Real Madrid’s berth in the Champions League final against local rivals Atletico with a 1-0 aggregate victory over Manchester City on Wednesday, memories of 2014’s all-Spanish final came flooding back.Sergio Ramos headed in a 93rd-minute equaliser in Lisbon to crush Atletico’s dreams of a first ever continental crown and put Real on their way to a 4-1 extra time victory that sealed ‘La Decima’, the 10th European Cup they had coveted for so long.“It’s another final and it’s taken a lot to get there but we’ve proven we know how to win it and we’re going to try and do it again,” Ramos said, looking ahead to the May 28 showdown in Milan. Having barely had time to digest their narrow win over Manuel Pellegrini’s side, Real’s euphoric fans gleefully recalled that late show in Lisbon, chanting: “Atletico, tell me how it felt to lose the final”.Gareth Bale, who forced the Fernando own goal that decided Wednesday’s semifinal tie and who put Madrid 2-1 up against Atletico in Lisbon, offered a more cautious message.“It’s great to be in the final again but there’s another game to go against a very difficult and stubborn Atletico Madrid team,” the Welshman said.“We know it’s going to be another difficult game, it always is against them.”Since breaking Atletico hearts in Lisbon, Real have faced their local rivals 10 times and won just once, Javier Hernandez’s late goal knocking Diego Simeone’s side out of the Champions League in last season’s quarterfinals.Before Simeone took over at Atletico in 2011, Madrid derbies were regarded as foregone conclusions, with the Rojiblancos last beating Real in 1999.Real fans revelled in their neighbours’ suffering, producing a banner before one game bearing the message “Wanted: a dignified rival for a decent derby. Apply here”.Guided by the inspirational Simeone, Atletico broke the stranglehold in the most fitting of places, the 2013 King’s Cup final at the Bernabeu.Real have not beaten Atletico in the league since 2013 and were thrashed 4-0 last season at the Vicente Calderon, and lost 1-0 to them at home this term.“It’s a final, there are no favourites,” Cristiano Ronaldo said. “We meet again. A final with Atletico is always special.”Midfielder Luka Modric also expects another tough encounter.“We played against them two years ago and we remember how difficult it was,” the Croatian said.“We expect the same game and I hope we get the same result.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

UPDATE!! Haitians warned to prepare for January expiration date of TPS

first_imgFollowing the granting of a temporary extension of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians living in the US since the 2010 earthquake by the Trump administration on Monday, the Department of Homeland security (DHS) is warning them to make preparations to head home when the January 2018 deadline expires.While the DHS officials repeatedly made clear they were making the decision based on the criteria set forth in the legislation creating the temporary protected status (TPS), they strongly urged that recipients from Haiti take the next six months to prepare for the potential expiration in January.“During the next six months, the secretary is encouraging all TPS recipients to handle their affairs accordingly,” an official said.The program had been set to expire in July.The decision, made by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, will be followed up by an official notice in the Federal Register, which will start the clock for recipients to apply for their six-month extension.The decision was made after Kelly determined that conditions in Haiti were improving since the earthquake seven years ago — and that at the end of six months, the program could be terminated instead of extended again.Temporary protected status is a DHS designation for various countries on matters like natural disasters and civil war. Once designated, individuals from those countries living in the US are protected from detention and deportation based on their immigration status and are able to apply for work authorizations. Other countries under TPS include Sudan, Syria and some Central American countries. Recipients must have been living in the US since the designation, so newcomers are not eligible.last_img read more

#AFCONonCiti: Christian Atsu’s AFCON over, leaves for England for treatment

first_imgGhana forward, Christian Atsu, will play no further part in Ghana’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after he sustained a severe muscle injury in the Black Stars’ Group F game against Cameroon.Atsu left the pitch just 15 minutes into the game against the defending champions and had to be replaced by Samuel Owusu.He was sent for tests on Sunday and the results that came back suggest the Newcastle United winger sustained a severe muscle tear that has consequently ruled him out of action for weeks.The 27 year old will now leave Ghana’s camp in Egypt for England to undergo further tests and treatment at his club side Newcastle United.Atsu was absent when Ghana held their last training session ahead of the crucial last Group F encounter against Guinea Bissau on Tuesday,  which the Black Stars must win in order to progress into the last 16.Thomas Agyapong and Jonathan Mensah, two players have also sustained injuries in Ghana’s previous game, took part in Monday’s training session but were kept apart from the rest of the group with different training regime.last_img read more

Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw feels healthy, progressing in recovery from back injury

first_imgAfter leaving his July 23 start after just two innings due to the back injury, Kershaw was symptom-free quickly enough to begin playing catch by the end of the week. Two weeks later, he is ready to throw off a mound again.“I definitely knew it wasn’t as bad as last year,” he said, referring to the mild disk herniation that sidelined him for 75 days. “When the MRI came back as good as it did, I wasn’t as worried. All those things considered, I guess I wasn’t surprised that it went away quicker.”The Dodgers and Kershaw have been adamant about not specifying a timetable for his return. Kershaw even labeled it “false” reporting when a 4- to 6-week estimate was put on it. But that appears to be where this is headed, putting Kershaw back in the Dodgers’ rotation in September. That would give him time to make at least five starts before the postseason.“I think for Clayton it’s four to five starts,” Roberts said when asked how many it would take for Kershaw to be ready for the postseason. “So he’ll make four to five starts, and with that he says he’ll be confident to (go into the postseason). … That’s a minimum. So we’ll see.”Proud papiDodgers reliever Luis Avilan left the team to be with his wife for the birth of their son, Sebastian, Monday in Miami.Avilan was placed on the paternity list by the Dodgers. He can miss up to three days, and Roberts said he expects Avilan to rejoin the team when the Dodgers get to Los Angeles for a weekend series against the San Diego Padres.In the meantime, right-hander Brock Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take Avilan’s spot on the roster. Stewart has not pitched since his start in Atlanta last Wednesday and was scheduled to start for the OKC Dodgers on Friday.AlsoFirst baseman Adrian Gonzalez continued his rehab assignment with the OKC Dodgers by going 0 for 3 Monday. He was off Tuesday and has gone 2 for 7 with two RBIs in three games since joining Oklahoma City last week. Gonzalez has not played on consecutive days yet. Roberts said he expects Gonzalez to be ready to come off the DL after “two weeks-ish.” “I think a bullpen (session) in the next few days makes sense. It’ll probably be when we get back to Los Angeles (for the weekend),” Roberts said.“He’s close. It just makes sense for us to be cautious again. We just don’t want to put ourselves into any situation where there’s a setback. The calendar is on our side. I know Clayton resists that. But I think as an organization it’s best for him and best for everyone if we just err on the side of caution for a couple days.”Kershaw acknowledged that he has been on the DL long enough now that he will need to go through the progression from bullpen sessions to a simulated-game situation and finally to a rehab assignment before he rejoins the Dodgers’ rotation.“I don’t feel like I’ve lost much. Still, being a starter, you have to build your innings back, and it’s going to take a little time to do that,” Kershaw said.“For the most part, I’ve had a few days off, but pretty much have been throwing the whole time minus those first few days (after the injury). But if you’re not throwing innings, you’re not sitting down and getting back, you inherently lose some of your stamina and endurance probably. (I’m) going to have to simulate that at some point, go through the whole bullpen, sim game, rehab, all that stuff. But I feel healthy right now. So that’s good.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img PHOENIX >> They are the three words the Dodgers would most like to hear from Clayton Kershaw two weeks after he suffered a lower-back strain.“I feel healthy,” Kershaw said after joining the team in Arizona and going through a full workout at Chase Field on Tuesday afternoon.“I feel healthy. So I think now it’s just a matter of building back up at a good pace, obviously understanding where we’re at and the timeline and all that stuff.”Kershaw did flat-ground throwing as part of his workout Tuesday and did not appear to be holding much back. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said last week that Kershaw was already pushing to step up his activity level and be allowed to throw off a mound. That could happen soon, Roberts said.last_img read more

Lakers’ playoff hopes dim with loss to Phoenix Suns

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“We just lost to a team that we should’ve beat, that’s the most frustrating thing,” said Kyle Kuzma, who finished with 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting. “We’re losing to teams we shouldn’t lost to. We lost to every bad team in the league, that’s unacceptable.”It took the Lakers too long to show some signs of life, a belated surge initiated in large part by JaVale McGee, who had 21 points off the bench. His dunk with 7:04 left cut a 19-point lead to 104-92. And his block shortly thereafter on Deandre Ayton led to a LeBron James’ 3-pointer that brought the Lakers to within 108-100.After a 3-pointer by Brandon Ingram (25 points) made it 108-103, McGee kept it going with defense, a dunk and a big rebound before Devin Booker (25 points) sank two free throws with much of his pro-Lakers home crowd jeering in an effort distract him, making it 112-105.LeBron James finished 27 points, including a pair when he climbed for the slam making it 112-109. He also had 16 assists and nine rebounds.But then the 6-foot-5 Josh Hart was called for a foul while tightly defending the 7-1 Ayton, exasperating the Lakers, who wanted an offensive hooking foul and a travel. Ayton stepped to the line with 52.9 seconds left, made both foul shots and the Lakers trailed 114-109.

The Suns won 118-109. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri)ExpandPHOENIX — In what felt a lot like a can’t-lose game against the now-13-win Phoenix Suns, the Lakers’ razor-thin margin of error sliced the wrong way Saturday as they fell flat, 118-109.The Lakers lost for the 12th time in 17 games; a night after falling short against the Eastern Conference-leading Milwaukee Bucks, this time it was against one of the worst teams in the league. The young Suns are ranked 28th in offensive efficiency and 29th defensive efficiency and were the only team so far mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.Now with only 19 games left, the Lakers (30-33) trail the Clippers and San Antonio Spurs by 4 1/2 games in the Western Conference standings.It was the first victory for Phoenix (13-51) in the second game of a back-to-back this season, and another loss to a bottom-dwelling team for the Lakers, who’ve also dropped games against the 13-49 New York Knicks and 15-48 Cleveland Cavaliers. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Tyler Johnson added a pair of free throws for Phoenix, followed by an missed Ingram jumper, to seal the game.The Lakers know they have to address some issues if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.“If we want to get to the goal that we’ve set for ourselves we have to believe in each other, we have to, yeah, we have to trust each other, that’s what it comes down to,” Hart said. “We can’t … get our heads down when something doesn’t go our way. We have to as a unit when adversity starts, we have to come together and that’s something we have to keep working towards.“We have the talent, we have the ability, we have the leadership to pile up wins, to make a run for the playoffs, but we have to do that as a collective unit and if we don’t believe in each other.”Instead of immediately jump-starting the action Saturday to get bad taste out of their mouths following Friday’s tough loss to the Bucks, the Lakers staggered and sagged against the lowly Suns, struggling to keep pace from the start, falling behind by as many as 14 in the first half.James — whose fourth field goal Saturday pushed him past Kobe Bryant for fifth place on the NBA’s career field goals list with 11,720 — was more aggressive in the second quarter, when he scored 12 points and tried to turn the tide.Ayton (26 points) finished the half with 16 points and Josh Jackson (16 points) chipped in with 11, including a soaring alley-oop slam to give Phoenix a 66-59 lead to close the half.Following intermission, the Suns showed more of a spoil-someone’s-season sense of urgency than the Lakers did to keep theirs alive.“We had chances in the second quarter to kind of close the quarter the right way,” James said. “Third quarter we allowed them to jump on us. Got up double digits. It wasn’t there throughout 48 (minutes) all night. That’s kind of the frustrating part of it all. We had opportunities.”Phoenix’s lead fluctuated but eventually ballooned to 17 in the third quarter thanks to sequences like the one when Oubre ripped away the ball from Ingram at midcourt and raced back, past James, for a slam. On the next possession, Ayton rebounded James’ missed 3 and sped back upcourt for another uncontested jam that made it 81-72.“We just need to focus more,” McGee said. “Sit back and put into perspective what’s at hand. Me personally, I haven’t had a long summer in a while and I don’t want to have a long summer.”last_img read more
