Alumni Stories

Recent graduates collaborate on innovative new web series

After founding their own film production company, three of our recent alums have created a new web series mixing high-concept sci-fi with low-budget ingenuity.

Olivia Baptista ’12, Diane Chen ’14, and Amber H.H. Porter ’14 first collaborated as theater undergrads at Dartmouth. The trio recently reunited to found Multihyphenate, a film production company that promotes diversity while eschewing the traditional hierarchy of labor in the entertainment industry. In keeping with the company’s namesake, Baptista, Chen and Porter cover multiple roles behind the scenes and in front of the camera.

The first episodes of their new suspense-filled, genre-bending web series "Here We Wait" were released in November. A total of 20 episodes—each averaging seven minutes in length—will be released periodically online in the coming months. The trio was recently featured in an interview in the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine, during which they talked at length about the project.
