ALUM'S MOVIE PREMIERES
IN CHICAGO - 5/6/06
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.
