Students Gather for Master Class with Film Industry Pro

Wachtel Wears Many Hats

Screenwriter and producer Emily Wachtel conducted a special master class April 26 at the Martire Business & Communications Center, which preceded a screening of her film, Lucky Them.

Wachtel demonstrated her diversity as originator, co-writer, producer and actor in this semi-autobiographical film, starring Toni Collette and Thomas Hayden Church. Lucky Them was screened and sold at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2013, and it received positive reviews from outlets such as Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.

The School of Communication & Media Arts and the Film and Television Master’s program hosted Wachtel’s master class.
