Academic Experience

USC Chapman University Wesleyan AFI

Ms. Goldenring is an Adjunct Professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Since 2011, she has taught an Advanced Producing graduate school course with fellow producer, Susan Cartsonis, that provides a comprehensive overview of producing for film, TV and the web. The course focuses on the creative, collaborative, and entrepeneurial aspects of producing movie and TV projects. The class combines lectures, case studies, guest speakers and open discussions.

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 web 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 has also lectured at Wesleyan, UCLA, and AFI, and analyzed pitches for other film school classes. Most recently she has been teaching a 3 day intensive "Exit class" for graduating film students at Wesleyan to help them prepare for the film, TV, and digital job markets.
