Film, TV Producer Returns to Omaha for Nov. 6 Seminar
Omaha - Film and television producer Howard Rosenman (“Father of the Bride,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) returns to Omaha with his inside look at producing for the screen – The Hollywood Sell.
After an introductory seminar last January in downtown Omaha, Rosenman returns with his day-long seminar. Hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Theatre and presented in conjunction with the Omaha Film Festival, the seminar is Saturday, Nov. 6, in the UNO College of Public Affairs and Community Service Building from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“I was so impressed by the filmmakers I met during our very productive session in Omaha earlier this year. I am looking forward to really rolling up our sleeves with the participants at this longer workshop,” Rosenman said.
Rosenman will share his entertaining stories from his 35-year career in show business while coaching participants on their careers and projects.
“With his notable film producing career, Howard brings deep knowledge of the craft and business of filmmaking to his public events. His seminar will be enjoyable and enlightening, and a valuable resource for Omaha’s film scene,” said D. Scott Glasser, UNO Department of Theatre chair.
Preceding the seminar, the Omaha Film Festival will present a special screening of "Father of the Bride," starring Steve Martin and Diane Keaton, Thursday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. at Great Escape Omaha Stadium, 7440 Crown Point Ave. A Q&A with Rosenman will follow the screening.
While in town, Rosenman will also visit film and theatre classes at both the Lincoln and Omaha campuses of University of Nebraska, and Creighton University.
On Wednesday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m., he will speak at a community event for the Jewish Federation of Omaha at the JCC Theatre.
Day seminar tickets at UNO are $75. Students and return participants will be offered a $25 discount. For more information and to purchase tickets to both the seminar and the “Father of the Bride” screening, visit www.thehollywoodsell.com.
