imagesDaniel Knauf is an executive producer and writer for NBC show Dracula, starring Jonathan Rhys Myers.  It’s not a surprise that Daniel was tapped to work on Dracula,  considering the projects he’s worked on before (and is currently developing).  They include the eerie, Emmy-winning series Carnivale, which he created for HBO. And if you meet Daniel, you will soon discover that, aside from being a gentleman (in all senses of the word), he is a gifted storyteller.  I have had the pleasure of meeting Daniel at several Taliesin Nexus-sponsored workshops, where he holds students spellbound with his colorful anecdotes, salty humor and hard-won sagacity. And yes, if you are an aspiring filmmaker and you apply for and are chosen for this summer’s Liberty Lab for Film, you will get a chance to meet the man in the flesh, as he is slated to serve as one of the mentors for the program.  A lucky pair of creative initiates will be paired with Daniel (how I envy you!), who will provide canny advice and push you to make a sensational short film. But don’t worry; he won’t try to extract any blood.  (Or so he promised.)      ]]>
