More news of Hollywood alumni working together.

Jake Avnet (C'05, Co-Chairman of Undergraduate Film Advisory Board, Founder of the Lecture Series, "Talking Film") produced a short film called LAST MEAL with Penn alum writer Tracy Park (W'05), Micah Fitzerman-Blue (Harvard grad), and director Mark Stern (Princeton grad).

This short film has been the recipient of two very prestigious grants:  the Special Project Grant from the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC, as well as the Panavision New Filmmaker's Grant.  The film stars Fran Kranz (The VillageMatchstick Men, and the upcoming TV series "The Dollhouse"), and Nikki Griffin (Dukes of Hazzard and The Fast and the Furious).

Per Jake,
"Fantasy becomes reality in this action/comedy about a suburban couple that ventures into a diner and find themselves in the middle of a "situation".  A man seeking vengeance for the death of his father has finally tracked down the culprit, the chef and owner of the diner."
Jake and his crew have just recently begun the festival run, and have been accepted into AFI Fest 2008 -- one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. The film will screen in competition at the ArcLight theater in Hollywood, on November 6th and 7th. For more information, please visit the blog: http://lastmeal.wordpress.com

Jake's zest for film production seems to have been passed down from his talented Penn alum director/producer father, Jon Avnet (C'71). Click here for some of my past posts about Jon.
