Dana S. Hubbard, Writer, Director, Producer, and CEO is currently celebrating his

Twenty-fifth year in the entertainment industry. His theatrical and film record includes

working alongside other critically acclaimed directors and producers such as Spike

Lee, Monty Ross, David E. Talbert, Tyler Perry and Dr. Alex C. Marshall to name a

few.

Dana’s talent and love for the arts began when he was a youth. He knew then that he was

destined to be a leader. During his attendance at the prestigious Hampton University, where he

majored in Speech Communication and Theater Arts, he starred in several plays. His talents won

him the Best Dramatic Duo Award from the National Association of Dramatic and Speech Arts

two consecutive years and also a nomination for the prestigious Irene Ryan Award.

 

In 1987, Dana joined the Richmond Theatre Company for Children. After one year with the

company, he moved back to New York to work with Spike Lee on “Do The Right Thing.” Other

film credits include “Mo Better Blues,” “Steppin,” “Don’t Let Your Meat Loaf,” and “Malcolm

X,” where he is featured as one of Malcolm’s key FOI.

 

Dana has produced numerous music videos and theatrical productions, including “Will A Man

Rob God?” and “Every Dog Has His Day”, a stage play based on his debut novel. His first

feature film, “A Woman Like That,” starring Tyra Banks and Malik Yoba won first place for

Best Dramatic Feature at the Urban World Film Festival.

 

In 1998, he created Camp D.A.N.A. (Dreams Always Need Assistance), an arts and

entertainment camp for youth, which is located on the campus of Hampton University in

Virginia. The mission of this weeklong summer camp is to broaden the interest in Arts and

Entertainment. Courses and workshops teach the nuts and bolts of the industry. By partnering

with affiliate organizations, the camp provides students with unique internship opportunities.

 

Dana has also managed music legends such as Stellar Award Winner, and Soul Train Lady of

Soul gospel artist La Shun Pace, and multi-platinum recording artist Freedom Williams, formerly

of C&C Music Factory.

 

Dana is also a managing member of Urban Lit Media, a multimedia enterprise that

converts urban street literature into feature films, stage plays, audio books, and music. His other

business ventures include promoting his first novel, Every Dog Has His Day, which has garnered

wide recognition and rave reviews throughout the country, completing a Children’s Book Series

titled Milo the Mischievous Mutt, and getting ready for his November 2012 release of his next novel, Never Play With A Woman’s Heart.

Dana is the Director of Marketing and Promotions for Hampton University Athletics.
