“Film School Gems”: Great movies often start in small packages. Such is the case of best picture Oscar nominee “Whiplash,” which originated as a 2013 short from director Damien Chazelle. As KQED’s “Film School Gems” proves, there’s more talent worth tapping, and much of it can be found on college campuses. Six of the seven shorts from university filmmakers were available in advance; each deliver the goods. My favorites: Mark Raso’s 2011 trapped-in-the-snow gem “Under,” which achieves so much in such a short time; Shane Atkinson’s 2013 black comedy “Penny Dreadful” about a kidnapping gone seriously wrong; Grainger David’s atmospheric, award-winning 2012 “The Chair,” about a killer mold invading the life of a young boy. But the standout is the whimsical and weird effort by Jonathan Langager, “Josephine and the Roach,” a girl-meets-roach romance that is sweet and extraordinary. Pixar should be knocking on Langager’s door. Screenings: 7 p.m. Feb. 6 at Humanist Hall; 5 p.m. Feb. 15 and 7:15 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Roxie.

When the concert’s finished, I just really feel very happy that the piece has gone well, and very delighted that I’m in the company of those people who were there that evening. I feel very at home on the stage, so I’m just as if I were welcoming someone to my house or (saying), “Thanks, glad you liked that.” I try to keep eye contact with the whole hall, not to forget anybody. When I ask the orchestra to take a bow, I make sure that everyone in the orchestra is standing before I will take my bow. I kind of glance around.
