NCC 2023 SalonFest & Tribute

Monday, January 9th at 7:30pm PT via Zoom

It’s our 3-Minute Film Festival! Cue up your latest short, reel, or anything you helped to create and we’ll show three minutes tomorrow, Monday, January 9th on Zoom. You’ll get a minute to tell us about it, before or after. We are also planning a tribute to Lew Hunter. Please come and share your thoughts and memories of him. Please send your files and/or links to 

Rest In Peace Lew Hunter

We learned of our dear friend Lew Hunter’s passing this past week. Our hearts go out to his wife Pam and his family, and we wish them peace and comfort during this difficult time. Lew was a legendary screenwriter, teacher, and guide. He inspired many of us on our journeys to becoming better writers of the human condition. A regular Salon guest, he touched the lives of many of us NCCers aspiring to be actors, directors, writers, producers, and beyond. We shall deeply mourn his absence. We celebrate his impact and his wisdom will be shared with generations to come. We will be setting aside time at tomorrow’s Salon for a tribute to Lew. Any friends of his are welcome to come and share your thoughts at the January 9th Salon on Zoom.
Thank you, Lew. Rest in peace, dear friend. You’ll always be in our hearts. 

NCC30 Tees – Snag yours now!

The NCC is coming into its 30th year around the sun. To celebrate, we have created a brand-new NCC 30th “Dare to Dream” Tee. Snag one and be sure to set your intentions to the highest of heights in 2023! $30 + shipping, or you can pick one up when we get back together in person. Email us at with your size & we’ll set one aside.

New Year, New Home

Your NCC is on a quest to find a new place to call Home Sweet Home in Hollywood! The Culver Hotel is under new management & their prices have tripled, so we’re moving onward. We’d love to discuss ideas with you: perhaps a theatre that’s dark on Monday, or a private room in a bar/restaurant. Please let us know your suggestions! We look forward to getting back to our in-person tradition soon.
