About Our Guest
Dana H. Glazer grew up in Newton, Massachusetts and began making movies when he was nine years old, shooting claymation films in his basement with the help of his grandfather and a trusty Super-8 camera. Later, he attended Bowdoin College in Maine and then studied filmmaking at NYU’s Graduate Film Program.
Dana’s NYU graduate thesis film, Intermezzo, a romantic ghost story, won a Student Academy Award in 1998. In 2002 Dana sold his original script, Rise, Sons of Bowdoin, an epic civil war story about Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, to Warner Brothers for director Mimi Leder (Deep Impact) and producer John Wells (ER, The West Wing, Far From Heaven). As a result, Dana became a member of The Writers Guild of America and the sale was featured on the front page of the Hollywood Reporter. On June 9, 2014, Dana was invited to The White House to present The Evolution of Dad at a fatherhood event.
Currently, Dana lives with his wife and three young children in New Jersey.
