Andrew Zinnes Visiting Tutor
Andrew ZinnesVisiting Tutor
Andrew toiled in Hollywood development for top producers, Norman Lear (Stand by Me and The Princess Bride) and Donald De Line (Domestic Disturbance and The Italian Job) for more than a decade.
He soon craved to be more hands-on in the creative process and worked on documentary/reality TV productions for MTV, TruTV, Telemundo and mun2.
Wanting to give back to the community, Andrew became the co-author of The Documentary Film Makers Handbook, part of the best selling The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series.
He interviewed literally hundreds of documentary professionals – many his colleagues – so that others could avoid pitfalls and land mines in a genre where you might actually deal with pitfalls and land mines.
His latest film, Paper Promises, aired on Super Channel, Canada.
