Academic Experience

USC USC Chapman University Wesleyan AFI

Ms. Goldenring is currently a part-time lecturer at NYU Los Angeles where she teaches a Script Analysis Course. She also has been teaching a Writing Workshop at AFI where she guides directors and producers in their work on feature scripts and pilots.

From 2011-2019, she was an Adjunct Professor, teaching an Advanced Producing course to graduate students at the USC School of Cinematic Arts with fellow producer, Susan Cartsonis. The class gave a comprehensive overview of producing for film, TV and streaming and focused on the creative, collaborative, and entrepeneurial aspects of producing movie and TV projects. The course provided a combination of lectures, case studies, guest speakers and open discussions to the students.

At Chapman, also in tandem with Cartsonis, she taught a Creative Producing and Development course that gave students practical and critical skills for evaluating and developing film, TV, and streaming projects. Students learned to create, assess, critique, and develop ideas and stories and learned the role of the producer in working with writers, executives, financiers, directors and line producers during the development of the script.

She is a film and TV writing mentor at Cinestory and has also lectured at Wesleyan, UCLA, and AFI, and analyzed pitches for other film school classes. For the last several years, she has taught a 2 day intensive "Exit class" for graduating film students at Wesleyan to help them prepare for the film, TV, and digital job markets.
