I produced the Filmmakers' Workshop for New York Stage & Film's Powerhouse season up at Vassar this summer with NYSAF co-founder Leslie Urdang and artistic director Johanna Pfaelzer. It's the third year of a relatively new program and it was am amazing experience to play a role in selecting the nine kick-ass screen and TV writers: Azia Squire, Bat-Sheva Guez, Charles McNamara, Denise Meyers, Jed Cowley, Kyle Fried, Melody Cooper, Michael Cooke and Syd Stewart. We all spent a week in the woods at Vassar, joined by an impressive group of 9 industry mentors from NY and LA who volunteered their time and talent to dive into the writers' projects. Throw in a dream-company of 14 actors who brought everyone's scripts to life in table reads during the week, plus guests who came to lead masterclasses and share their experiences on panels - it was an intense, magical week. Here we are at our farewell dinner. Goodbye for now - but to be continued. Looking forward to see what's next for this talented group .
