Hollywood Salon

It’s a Nebraska Coast Valentine…
as we welcome back our old friend, filmmaker & Slamdancer Dan Mirvish!

Happy Valentine’s Day, !

Monday, February 14th – come join your friends at the NCC Salon for a sweet evening with our very own Valentine, Dan Mirvish.

Dan is an award-winning director, screenwriter, producer and critically-acclaimed author, as well as being the co-founder of the Slamdance Film Festival.  He’s freshly back from Park City, and will fill us in on all the insider scoop on the Slamdance and Sundance Festivals this year.After debuting with his first feature, the infamous OMAHA (THE MOVIE), Dan actually changed the rules at the Academy Awards with his film musicals OPEN HOUSE and HALF EMPTY, and made international headlines with his political stunts during the 2008 presidential campaign.  His next big project is underway now and he’ll share his secrets of film financing with us tonight.

Labeled a “cheerful subversive” by The New York Times, and “Hollywood’s Bad Boy” by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Mirvish has been named as one of Variety’s Top 50 Creatives to Watch, as well as one of Film Festival Today’s Top 25 Most Influential People in Independent Film.
Bon bons and roses are overrated.  Come to the Salon tonight and hang with one of our coolest Nebraska filmmakers. Hope to see you at the Culver TONIGHT — Monday, Feb 14th.

October 2010 Hollywood Salon Announcement – old

If you are looking for a job in Hollywood, or think you might ever be looking for a career at a major studio, then it just might be a very valuable thing for you to know the VP of Human Resources at Paramount Pictures.

By marvelous coincidence, guess who will be the guest at the Nebraska Coast Salon on Monday, October 11th?

Jim White is not only the Vice President of Human Resources at Paramount Pictures and former exec with Blockbuster and Universal Music, but an inspiring author and entrepreneur.

He’ll be bringing his new book, THE WORLD IS A SAFE PLACE. Should be an interesting evening for the Nebraska Coast Connection, don’t you think?

Jim’s bio, links to his book site, plus Salon details & directions and much more can be found on our website: www.nebraskacoast.com

Don’t miss this chance to meet Jim at the next Salon: Monday, October 11th at the Culver Hotel in Culver City. It promises to be an inspiring Salon!

Feature Film Director Michael Hofacre

Monday, August 9, 2010

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!
