Special Guest:  Director/Editor Tom Elkins“What I really want to do is direct.” But how do you get there? One route is through editing…just like our September Salon guest…

Tonight, come meet the Omaha director and editor Tom Elkins. He directed The Haunting in Georgia, the upcoming feature from Lionsgate.

Tom began his career making comedic training videos and TV ads for Godfather’s Pizza. He broke into feature films first as a production assistant on Gattaca, then as a production coordinator with credits that include Mel Gibson’s Payback, and the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski.

Tom moved into feature editing as an assistant for Oscar- winning editors such as Mike Hill and Dan Hanley on The Da Vinci Code and The Missing, and for David Brenner on Wanted. He joined Wes Craven’s team on Cursed and Red Eye White Noise II for Gold Circle Films, giving him his first opportunity as feature film editor. Among other credits, he edited 2009’s hit thriller The Haunting in Connecticut, as well asThe Apparition coming soon from Warner Brothers.

How often do you have the chance to meet someone on the filmmaking team of such directors as Milos Forman, Michael Mann, Danny DeVito and Jodie Foster?

At tonight’s Hollywood Salon, you can.

Did you know there was a Nebraskan on the editing staff for THE FORTY YEAR OLD VIRGIN, TALLADEGA NIGHTS, STEP BROTHERS, and THE BEAVER (the new film directed by Jodie Foster, starring Mel Gibson)?

You will meet him at tonight’s Salon also. Along with a talented theatre director, a Shakespearean trained actor and very nice guy from Omaha.  (OK, he’s the same guy).

The August Hollywood Salon will introduce you to feature editor Michael Hofacre.  See www.nebraskacoast.com for details on Mike’s long-overdue return to the Salon tonight.

And for those of you who were wondering when we’d see Holly & Raider back at a Salon…tonight’s the night!  This Nebraska couple is one of our sweetheart stories — they married after meeting at a Salon.  And they’re about to move back to Nebraska together, so come help us give them a proper NCC send-off tonight!
