Happy Friday! We want to share some art, design, and culture goodies shared by the SVACE faculty and community.
Congratulations to Natalie Sena Murray, recent SVACE student! Natalie’s short film, A Good Assistant, has been selected to screen at the 2016 “Made in New York Filmmakers Showcase” on Feb 13 at The Producers Club Theater, presented by the Big Apple Film Festival Year Round Screening Series.
Natalie writes, “My cast and crew are very excited about this opportunity and we couldn’t have done it without our professor Sal Petrosino and our classmates in the SVACE class Digital Filmmaking I.”
A Good Assistant is a 6 minute short film that tells the story of a young woman trying her best to do a good job for her demanding boss. In this dark comedy, her preconceived notions about her villainous boss lead her down a path that changes her life forever. A teaser for the film can be found on Vimeo.

Natalie Sena Murray (Director/Writer/Producer/Editor), Tania Jeudy (Sound Mixer), Melquan Ali (Sound Boom), Victoria Spadaccini (Camera), Krityanee Promsarin (Camera), Chelsea Marshall (Lighting), Francine Wong (Script Supervisor), Sarah Kraus (Acting)
A Good Assistant will be featured in Block 5 8:45-10:45pm. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online or at the box office at the Producers Club on the day of the screening.
