That’s right, friends, time for a holiday party. One of many you will attend this season, but probably the only one where you will be surrounded by fellow Dartmouth alumni. And that will  make it one of the best this winter.

Come listen to Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson (both ’02s) read from their newly released book “The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time”.

If you find a typo in their book, you get to yell at them in front of what will be a giant audience.

To quote Jeff: “It’s going to be my co-author Benjamin and I talking about our typo-hunting adventures and trading grammatical war stories with the audience, and there’ll be a couple of readings from the book and swag giveaways. Should be some funny moments, and Dartmouth definitely plays a role in the book as well– the first chapter takes place there.”

Learn screenwriting

April 30, 2010

From Rob Malkani, he of the glorious class of ’92, comes this offer.

Dear Friends,

I am proud to announce the launch of my screenwriting workshop – BREAK INTO SCREENWRITING.

Break Into Screenwriting is a one-day screenwriting workshop for people who want to learn how to write a great script and how to actually break into the film business. It is perfect for anyone working in another career who has ever dreamed of writing a movie. Now you can learn how from someone who broke into the business from another profession and has had several of his scripts produced into feature films with major stars. My recent films have starred such well-known actors as Elijah Wood, Val Kilmer, Timothy Hutton, Ginnifer Goodwin, Ally Sheedy, Alessandro Nivola, Eric Roberts, Elisabeth Moss and many others.

The only question is . . . why not you???

The first BREAK INTO SCREENWRITING workshop:

Date – May 15 (9AM to 6PM)

Location – Soho House NY

Class Size – 10 people

Cost – $300

For more information, please visit www.breakintoscreenwriting.com.

Or email us at info@breakintoscreenwriting.com.

Or call us at 212-933-1170.

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!

Sincerely,

Rob Malkani

Writer/producer/director

DAEMA/DLA happy hour

February 16, 2010

DAEMA and our new BFFs, the Dartmouth Lawyers Association, follow up on the last successful get-together with another happy hour.

Join us March 24th at the Aspen Social Club for an evening of discussing how your controversial art projects can be protected under the letter of the law. Or just friendly drinking.

Exact time to follow.

It wasn’t. Your memories deceive you.

But we can try, try again.

Come to P.S. 450 (Park Ave b/t 30-31st Streets), on Monday November 30th (6-9 PM) for another fantastically fantastic happy hour! We will be joined by the Dartmouth Lawyers Association in chummy revelry.

So if you feel like your script for “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” may have been plagiarized (and you are ready to admit to the public that you wrote the aforementioned script), this would be the time to get some legal advice.

See you then!

Ether Steeds

August 10, 2009

NEW YORK THEATER

“ETHER STEEDS”
A play directed by Niegel Smith
Set against the back drop of coastal North Carolina – cheap beer, anonymous gentlemen and the ashes of the dearly departed spur Mamma and her Venus Flytrap obsessed daughter, Skeeta, toward the inevitable. Ether Steeds is a ritualistic examination of the chasms between a mother, a daughter and the sea. Mixing realistic staging with more fantastical moments Skeeta creates a landscape of memory where her dreams and fears push her toward the union she desires.  For more info and ticket information, visit the website: http://www.ethersteeds.com/

Come join us for summer drinks outdoors with entertainment-minded folks from Stanford, Cornell and Harvard at 230 Fifth Avenue next Monday, July 13th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
