Writers Boot Camp founder Jeffrey Gordon has partnered with producer Paul Rosenberg to start Writers Boot Camp Prods.
New shingle aims to discover and develop feature film projects for both studios and independents through the Writers Boot Camp alumni community in Los Angeles, New York and internationally.
Rosenberg previously was an exec at Dimension and Imagine and has worked with Scott Rudin, Ray Stark, Brian Grazer and Harvey and Bob Weinstein. He founded Saratoga Entertainment, which produced the feature “Go.”
“With the incredible brand and extensive community Jeff has built up over the years, I have no doubt we’ll be able to quickly put together a slate of commercial projects that will serve as a launching pad for the most gifted graduates of Writers Boot Camp,” Rosenberg said.
More than 8,000 screenwriters have graduated from Writers Boot Camp’s Basic Training and Think Tank programs since 1989. Alumni include David Levien (“Ocean’s Thirteen”), Heather Hach (“Freaky Friday”), Shawn Schepps (“Drumline”), Hadley Davis (“Ice Princess”) and Cindy Chupack (“Sex in the City”).
Rosenberg and Gordon met early in their careers at the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC.
The new production shingle will operate as a separate division from the company’s coursework, membership services and consulting support business. It’s located at Writers Boot Camp’s headquarters at Bergamot Station Arts Colony in Santa Monica.
