2014 Workshop/Guest Speaker – Jeffrey Weissman
Jeffrey Weissman’s interest in film began as a child growing up in Hollywood during the 1960’s. He’d assert himself onto professional location shoots in his neighborhood, and ‘would pick the brains of the working talent. Weissman began making films in ’74 and hasn’t stopped. In Jeffrey’s on camera career, he co-stars with top names in the biz; in classic films (Back to the Future 2 & 3, Pale Rider, Twilight Zone the Movie) and in indies (Corked, Slapdash, American Disciples). He’s a catalyst behind the scenes; writers use his talents for developing stories, characters and resonance of truth for their scripts, directors use him for castings, table readings and trouble shooting on set, producers work with Jeffrey to fill the perfect crew, and find other pieces of the movie making puzzle. He also teaches at Universities, High Schools, vocational institutions, film expos, festivals and privately using his wisdom from four decades of film experience.
