JIM HANNA, TV, Film, & Commercial Actor You may recognize this long-time NCCer who has graced the silver and small screen with hundreds of credits to his name. Hollywood hasn’t fazed this great guy, who isready to share his experience as a REAL working actor in Los Angeles with YOU. Jim Hanna was born and raised in Lincoln and graduated from UNL in 1991. After, he moved to LA to get an MFA at USC and has been here ever since. After years of the “starving actor” routine, he began working and has carved out a steady career in TV, film, and commercials.
He’s appeared in 100+ commercials and has dozens of film and TV credits, including roles in FRIENDS, WILL & GRACE, THE X-FILES, WAR OF THE WORLDS, RAY DONOVAN, PARKS AND REC, MOM, BATTLE OF THE SEXES, JANE THE VIRGIN and LA’S FINEST. Most recently he has appeared in ABC’s STATION 19 HBO’s upcoming PERRY MASON, and the Nebraska-set ABC comedy BLESS THIS MESS where he plays…a New Yorker visiting Nebraska.
He’s also appeared often in LA’s small theaterswith award winning roles in OTHELLO and EQUUS, among others. He’s a regular contributor to The Hollywood Fringe Festival as an actor, writer, and producer. His most recent effort, THE MAYOR’S DEBATE OF TRANQUILITY, NEBRASKA, was nominated for 7 awards including Best Comedy, and won the Theatre Unleashed Award for Top Ensemble Production. Even after nearly 29 years in LA, his Nebraska upbringing continues to influence his life and work.

Our Annual Three Minute Film Fest: SalonFest 2020!
Happy New Year from the NCC! A whole new decade is here and it’s time to show us what YOU got…
Returning once again is SALONFEST: THE THREE MINUTE FILM FESTIVAL, our ever-popular NCC mini-film festival! This is where we will show three minutes of anything you want to showcase – up on the Big Screen!
There’s a ton of talented folks in the NCC, and many of you have created some amazing work in the past year. This is our chance to see a bit of what you’ve been up to.
Cue up your latest short, reel, or anything you helped to create, and we’ll show three minutes of it at the January Salon. You’ll get a minute to tell us about it, before or after. (Got something longer? Barter with others to share your time…) For format, we can screen from DVDs, thumbdrives or internet streams.
It will be an eclectic and fast-paced evening…no telling what surprises we will be seeing. Webisodes. New acting reels. Docs. Kickstarter promos. All kinds of YOUR latest masterpieces. Whatever you want to share with the group — this is your chance to show off.
If you know what you’ll be sharing, give us a heads up on our Facebook page — then we can update everyone here what to expect in the next email blast. Or just show up Monday and surprise us.
Come to share or come to see what your friends have been creating. It’s a great way to get to know all the talent in this group, develop collaborations, and to participate by showing us what you got in a safe and friendly environment. SalonFest is always one of the most fun Salons of the year.
HERE THEY ARE! Photos from the Holiday Salon can be found by following the links. View and download until January 14th. Check them out, organized by photographer so can give em a shoutout! JD Mata – Shaun Cleeton – Tim Woodward
Happy New Year!
See you Monday, January 13th 2020!
