Vanessa Mizzone (C'99) stars in another funny short film about a single woman (played by Vanessa) who is surprised when mothers find her day unusually stimulating. This is a must-see for any woman out there who is trying to remember her life before kids!

Another one of my favorite Vanessa comedy shorts here!

Next Week:
Our Penn in Pictures series continue with videos of Jason Resnick (C'92) (Universal acquisitions) ...and Hollywood's insider answers to questions you'll want to know about!

UPenn
Earlier this week, I posted video of TV writer (and Penn in Pictures') host Lew Schneider (C'83) and "ER" Medical consultant, Zach Lutsky (C'97) talking about their beginnings in Hollywood.

Today, I continue my Penn in Pictures series with great video of TV writer Sherri Cooper Landsman (C'94). Sherri got her start with a bantery screenplay Juliet Finkelstein Does The Hamptons, and has been working solidly ever since, working initially for Darren Star ("Miss Match") and then on "American Dreams". Now on "Brothers and Sisters", Sherri is a prolific writer, and has shouldered significant producing responsibilities, both in terms of re-writing other writers and in terms of the actual production of the episodes.

In the videos below, Sherri talks about:
  • Her path from Penn to Columbia film school to Hollywood
  • What short film she did in film school, how she got her short film turned into a feature film … and how she paid for her film! (you’ve got to hear this!)
  • What she did when she moved back to LA
  • What her first writing job was in LA
  • What she does as a producer and writer on “Brothers and Sisters”
  • What it’s like in the writer’s room, what it’s like shooting scenes and how many episodes the show has to do this year




A special thanks to editor David Chalfin (C'96), a fantastic editor living in Los Angeles who recorded and edited all the Penn in Pictures videos. Check out his reel here!

Yesterday, I posted video of TV writer (and Penn in Pictures') host Lew Schneider (C'83) talking about his beginnings in Hollywood.

Today, I continue my Penn in Pictures series with great video of Zach Lutsky (C'97). Not only is Zach an attending physician in Emergency Medicine at Cedars-Sinai medical Center, but he has worked as a medical consultant on:
  • two cable shows, "Untold Stories of the ER" and "Diagnosis X" 
  • and is currently in his second season as an on-set medical technical advisor on "ER." 
  • Most recently, he also was the medical technical advisor on the new John Wells pilot, "LAPD."
In the videos above, watch Zach talk about his beginnings from Penn - to Dr - to Dr. Hollywood!

Yesterday I talked about this year's great Penn in Pictures event and how I will be posting videos from the event.

To start things off, check out the video above of TV writer Lew Schneider (C'83, Everybody Loves Raymond writer).

In the video, Lew talks about:
  • His major at Penn, his time in Mask and Wig
  • How her pursued a life in comedy as a stand-up, tv host, an actor and a TV writer
  • How he transitioned from actor to writer and what shows he wrote for before landing his Everybody Loves Raymond gig
  • What he's been doing since Raymond ended (including new pilots, a great animated show he wrote for, and his time now on New Adventures of Old Christine)
More Penn in Pictures videos tomorrow!

UPenn
(l to r): Lew Schneider (C'83), event producer Reg Tigerman (C'07), Zach Lutsky (C'97), 
Sherri Cooper Landsman (C'94) and Jason Resnick (C'92)

"How do I break into the entertainment business?" is the number one question Penn alumni and undergrads always ask of me.

In late October, the Penn Club of Los Angeles hosted its annual Penn in Pictures event at ICM and those who attended got some answers from some of our successful alumni panelists.

These paneslists included Jason Resnick (C'92) (Universal acquisitions), Sherri Cooper Landsman (C'95) (Brothers and Sisters Writer), Zach Lutsky (C'97) (ER Medical Consultant) and moderator Lew Schneider (C'83)(Everybody Loves Raymond, New Adventures of Old Christine)

If you missed the event, not to worry!  For the first time, we have recorded the event and starting tomorrow (for the next 2 weeks), I will be sharing with you the videos from all of our panelists and more importantly, the 20+ questions that our alumni asked of our panelists including the ever popular question on "how do I get into the business"!

Check back here on DT, you'll definitely want to know what our panelists said!  (sign up for the free newsletter below to get the updates delivered to your email!)
