Writer/director | Formerly of Amazon Studios | Class of 1984

Like so many other alumni, the place that comes to Marty Weiss' mind first is Kam’s: "a dark, dumpy dive bar that smelled like stale beer — or worse.

"Kam’s was our most trusted afterhours haunt, where we would unwind from our studies, worry about the future and share our dreams. It was the quintessential college experience.

“Great romances began and hearts were broken, but by the third drink, none of it mattered," says the former Amazon Studios writer/director, who now owns his own Los Angeles-based production company, Martini Shot Films.
