DAVID N. WEISS – HOLLYWOOD SCREENWRITER BRINGS LAUGHTER AND PRACTICAL JEWISH INSIGHTS TO CHEVIOT HILLS
Emmy Nominated writer, DAVID N. WEISS (Shrek 2 , The Smurfs Movies, Rugrats) will present an hilarious evening of useful personal and professional stories in “ The Wild Spiritual Ride of a Hollywood Screenwriter,“ 7 pm, Tuesday, January 5 at Chabad of Cheviot Hills, 3185 Motor Avenue.
Weiss’s world-traveled presentation springs from his unlikely adventures as a nice Jewish boy who spent years as a charismatic church youth worker before returning to his Jewish roots via a blockbuster screenwriting career. Says Weiss, “When you find yourself under a wedding chupah with a gorgeous blonde in a Presbyterian Church being married by a Jews for Jesus Rabbi, something has to give.”
Weiss also co-wrote Clockstoppers, Are We There Yet? and Academy Award-nominated Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. He was nominated for an Emmy as co-head writer for the Rugrats Series and has various other Film and TV credits, including the MGM classic, All Dogs Go to Heaven, for a combined box office exceeding $2.3 billion. David recently completed work on the sequel to the Amy Adams hit musical, Enchanted, for Disney.
An award-winning short film director, David is a proud member of the Motion Picture Academy, a former Vice President of the Writers Guild of America and has also written several children’s books. He lives in Los Angeles, with his wife, Eliana, their two kids, plus two cats, two birds, two dogs and a desert tortoise
The cost for the talk is $25 (prepaid $18).
