Chris (Mission Baby writer/actor) and Dan recently completed a year as “artists in residence” at the San Francisco Film Society’s FilmHouse along with a dozen other independent filmmakers and producers. The two formed Potluck Productions in 2004, producing web videos and providing live streaming and media services for San Francisco businesses and nonprofits, using comedy whenever possible. After graduating from MIT with a double Master’s degree in Technology and Policy, Chris spent several years working on environmental protection and poverty alleviation projects in Colombia, Mongolia, and Oakland, CA., before moving to story-telling at a mechanism for social change. Chris and Dan have been co-hosting “Script to Screen” for six years, a monthly event that brings together the SF film community to read scripts, watch films, and have nerdy conversations about theme, metaphor, and story.

Dan (Mission Baby co-writer) started his career in comedy as a weekend player at The Second City in Chicago. He came to San Francisco and the post facility, Rough House Editorial, where he worked on narrative films, documentaries, and commercials. In addition to his work at Potluck, Dan has worked as a freelance Director/Producer for Levi Strauss & Co since 1998 creating content for internal purposes, the web, and for their flagship stores (other clients include Mervyn’s, AT&T, Netforce, and Cisco Systems.)
