News Release

Talent and hard work continue to pay off for Trinity alumnus Kurt Schemper '97. His newest movie, The Last Dispatch, made its Chicago premier on Friday, April 28, at the Park West Theater. Schemper produced the film along with his partners from Sodium Entertainment. 

The feature documentary chronicles the last days of Dispatch, quite possibly the biggest band that never signed with a record label. The group's final concert, "The Last Dispatch," drew 110,000 fans from each of the 50 states as well as 20 foreign countries for one last free show in Boston in July 2004. The film, which premiered in Boston in the summer of 2005, has now premiered in New York as well as Chicago. Following the Chicago debut, Dispatch member Pete Francis played three songs with a friend who accompanied him on saxophone. 

Schemper's filmography also includes Breaking Dawn, a 2004 thriller, and the television series That '70s Show.
