About Judith


Bio

After an extensive producing career, I'm primarily teaching screenwriting now via Skype in one-on-one sessions and teaching Online for UCLA's FILM Extension School. And in Santa Barbara City College Film School. There I'm working with new producers about what to expect when a movie gets made. i.e How To Produce an Indie. Needless to say, I love to TEACH. I

After an extensive producing career, I'm primarily teaching screenwriting now via Skype in one-on-one sessions and teaching Online for UCLA's FILM Extension School. And in Santa Barbara City College Film School. There I'm working with new producers about what to expect when a movie gets made. i.e How To Produce an Indie. Needless to say, I love to TEACH. I
I have been a film, television and theater producer for my whole career. I did films with and for my longtime partner Richard Dreyfuss. I also produced on Broadway - HAVING OUR SAY The Delany SIsters' First 100 Years - was first on Broadway and then on CBS. I produced amongst others films QUIZ SHOW and MR. HOLLAND"S OPUS and films for ABC, A&E and HBO. All during my career, I always mentored young new entrants into the industry and, in a larger way, I set up a partnership between GM and Women In Film for young people.

I have the experience and the determination to interpret the film, tv and theater industries for the student. And then, I love witnessing a student's sudden understanding of the way things work, the answers to the "whys"? I've also learned to bring the practices in these industries down to size for the new student who finds it all exciting, but, until they've experienced some of it, it seems too multi-leveled.
I would like to add this idea: working on Skype, from anyplace in the country works well. I'm here on the west coast of California and you can be anywhere with a computer and we can work face to face. It's an excellent way to get excellent teaching resources
