Industry Vets Join Dodge College of Film and Media Arts Faculty

Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts has hired six industry veterans to join the faculty for the fall 2015 semester.

Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, screenwriter Rachel Goldberg, producer and director Daniel Petrie Jr., director Donald Petrie, former New Line Cinema and Relativity marketing head Russell Schwartz, and Castle Rock Entertainment co-founder, chairman and chief executive officer Martin Shafer will all be joining the faculty.

“Bringing these Hollywood influentials into the classroom gives our students the chance to learn firsthand what’s happening in the business today,” says Dodge College Dean Robert Bassett. “At the same time, by sharing their time and expertise, these Hollywood faculty are invigorated by interacting with the next generation of young filmmakers. It is definitely a two-way exchange.”

Daniel Petrie will be teaching two screenwriting classes, while Donald Petrie will be teaching three directing classes. Isaacs will return to teach motion picture publicity. Schwartz will be teaching courses on marketing and distribution, while Goldberg will be teaching a variety of courses on film storytelling.
