Corman takes helm of NYU grad dept.

Trinity prexy named chair of film/TV program

NEW YORK — Julie Corman, prexy of Trinity Pictures, has been named chair of NYU’s Graduate Film and Television Department in the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television.

Beginning this fall, Corman will be responsible for the quality and character of the department, including overseeing curriculum, managing the budget and identifying resources to carry out the curriculum.

Corman, who produced Martin Scorsese’s directorial debut, “Boxcar Bertha,” and Jonathan Demme’s “Crazy Mama,” co-founded New World Pictures and Concorde-New Horizons with her husband, producer Roger Corman. In 1984, Corman founded Trinity Pictures and started with her husband Concorde Anois, a film studio in Ireland, in 1995. Scorsese, a graduate of NYU who serves on the Dean’s Council, nominated Corman as chair.

“We are fortunate to have someone like Julie to head the department,” said Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. “Her track record as a successful producer combined with her outstanding reputation for nurturing talent makes her the ideal individual to lead our program.”

“I sort of got nudged in this direction. One of them was that I was encouraged by Larry Turman (chair of USC’s Peter Stark program) and he said that, ‘This is the most rewarding thing I’ve done in my professional life,’ so that stuck with me a little bit,” Corman said. “Also in the process I went to talk to the students and got to see how things work. The more I got a look at, the more I was drawn to it.”
