Nonprofit Marketing Network- Lincoln

FROM THEIR WEBSITE: www.nmn-online.org/

Welcome — you’ve discovered the network that links people who change our world with people who tell their stories.

Throughout Lincoln, people are working to build a stronger community through a variety of worthy causes. As these nonprofit agencies work on changing lives, there are often limited resources for critical communications needs.

The nonprofit marketing network builds Lincoln’s capacity to transform lives by changing the paradigm. Nonprofit agencies needn’t choose between providing services and paying for marketing expertise. In fact, they can accomplish more by doing both.

Dessa Darling- first album and music video- from her blog

This Is It
Well, this is it. I've spent the last few years writing and recording to try and produce an album I'm proud of. I came up with a collection of 15 tracks titled A Badly Broken Code. Doomtree has spent infinite hours, and most of our finite dollars, to support this album. For the first time in our history we're in a position to really take our music and our business to a national level. This morning Ander, our gifted 20-year-old intern, launched the pre-order on our site.

While Ander was programming at his desk, I reported to the set of my first, real music video. Britni, the Art Director, picked me up just after 7 a.m. I don't see a lot of sunrises, but I caught one this morning as we arrived at a rented house in Saint Paul. Inside I scanned the full rooms for Maria, the director and my friend. She looked busy, in cuffed jeans and Converse, talking with two other women standing around a monitor.

Up in the Air - a Crewview and a Living Example of would-of, could-of, should-of

* Posted by Jamie Vesay on December 17, 2009 at 2:00pm filminne.ning.com

I worked on Up in the Air. I ended up with the most days on the project of any local crew. Jason Reitman is all the nice guy he appears in interviews. The Producers and out-of-town crew were all top shelf professionals and as kind. I am proud to have worked on this project.

My involvement in Locations started way back in October of 2008 when Jason came to town for a Director's scout. Honestly, it was a tad surreal since only a month earlier, I was watching him on my TV doing behind-the-scenes commentary from Juno. Over the next few months, there were other visits and more scouting - hoping that at least some of the movie would come here.

I got to see the movie last night. While a good movie, as it has been critically reviewed, my emotions were admittedly mixed. A few things:

1. There's even less of Omaha in the movie that was shot (they filmed two days - Omaha airport and Old Market).

boy i wish i knew how to find shoes onlines

boy i wish i knew how to find shoes onlines

wait i change my mind. you do not sell shoes here now. no more shoes.

Grand Illusion Fackler first feature waxes ‘Lovely, Still’ CITY WEEKLY article

“Lovely, Still,” the first film from Omaha’s Nik Fackler, has left town after a week playing in front of cast, crew, family, friends and fans. It won’t likely return until its planned spring release. Local reviews have been predictably favorable and supportive, which Fackler has earned, yet national critics have been somewhat polarized following showings at the 2008 Toronto and 2009 Chicago film festivals.

After the festival screenings, online reviewer Nick Davis described the third act of “Lovely, Still” as “one of the most crudely forced ‘twist’ revelations I can remember” and then went on to grade it a “D.” Matt Dwyer of film.com countered with “the third act is obviously its most poignant … a well-crafted blend of fantasy and reality, memory and delusion” and generally gushed otherwise while Davis groused about the film’s production values.

GREAT OWH ARTICLE: Landau shares lovely memories

By Bob Fischbach

In person he’s soft-spoken, gentle, with the demeanor of a kindly, slightly mischievous grandfather.

But Martin Landau’s 50-year career in movies and television spans a wide range of memorable characters, many of them less than kind: A homicidal henchman atop Mount Rushmore in Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest” (1959). A has-been producer in HBO’s “Entourage” in 2006, his sixth Emmy-nominated turn. Rollin Hand, master of disguises on television’s “Mission: Impossible,” for which he won a Golden Globe in 1968. Bela Lugosi in Tim Burton’s “Ed Wood,” for which he won the Academy Award in 1995.

Last week Landau, 78, was in town for the local premiere of Omaha screenwriter-director Nik Fackler’s film, “Lovely, Still,” about an elderly grocery sacker who falls in love. Landau talked about his beginnings with Hitch, his work with Fackler and trends in the movie industry.

W A K E The W I T C H Free Premiere ! ! ! ! !

That's right! TONIGHT ONLY !!!! Get your sorry butts down to THE ROSS THEATRE at 7:00.

Unfiltered Entertainment proudly presents that masterpiece of midwestern horror:

W A K E The W I T C H

Written & Direced by



“It’s a suspense horror movie, done in the Japanese style about a girl who awakens an evil curse that starts taking over her life, and the people close to her start to turn in to something else. It’s super scary. Underline super twice.”
