Brooklyn Event

Here’s another one from the email inbox (actually right here on xanga). Looks like it’ll be an interesting talk for any people out there thinking about making the transition from good job your parents can brag about to struggling filmmaker.

From Basil:

Hi Mike,

We’ve never met, but I thought I’d let you know about an event
happening at Brooklyn Law School in NYC… thought you might be
interested in knowing about it, even though you are in LA. Maybe some
of your readers would be interested? It’s open to all..

Take care and keep up the awesome work,

Basil

=======================

The Asian Pacific American Law Student Association at Brooklyn Law
School is hosting an event on 3/25 entitled “From Firm to Film,” and I
thought that members of your group might be interested. This event is
being opened up to NYC schools, and more information can be found
below.

Please feel free to distribute as you deem fit. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

Basil Kim

President, APALSA

Brooklyn Law School APALSA Presents:

**From Firm to Film**

Tuesday, March 25

7:30 – 9:30 PM, Afterparty to follow.

Geraldo’s, Feil Hall

205 State Street, Brooklyn NY

Francis Hsueh (Brooklyn Law ‘02) and Steven Hahn (UVA Law ‘00) met
in the corporate world and moved away from firm law to start their own
film company (and continue to practice law on the side). They directed
and produced a documentary on Asian-Americans in NYC called “Party,”
and they recently finished their second full-length feature, “Pretty to
Think So,” which will be debuting at film festivals in LA and San
Francisco.

Come learn how they combine their personal interests with a law
career, and hear how their legal backgrounds equipped them for the work
they are doing today.

Food and drinks will be provided! Open to ALL. Invite your friends!
