LITTLE GHOST CREW

MAGGY TORRES-RODRIGUEZ

      My name is Maggy Torres-Rodriguez and I am from Miami, Florida.   I can trace back to the exact moment that I had an existential awakening: I was about eight years old and just discovered that DVD’s included behind-the-scenes featurettes.   I must have rewatched the making of The Nightmare Before Christmas more times than I saw the actual movie.  I became obsessed with Tim Burton (and Helena Bonham Carter, let’s be honest!) and the magic of stop-motion films.

       I immediately scoured the abysmal 2001 internet looking for more “behind the scenes” footage of any and all movies. I was so captivated by the process of turning words on a page into a living, breathing story machine in real life. There were butterflies in my stomach as if I was falling in love, butterflies I still feel today. And what is passion if it’s not being in love with what you are meant to do? I went to the University of Miami and got my Bachelors degree in Film Production, and my MFA in Screenwriting from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.       

        I’ve been working in post-production for the last 8 years and adore telling stories through visuals. Currently, I am an adjunct professor at Miami-Dade College and the University of Southern California, School of Cinematic Arts - where I teach classes on Screenwriting, Production Management, and Writing Business Proposals for Film, as well as a full time video producer and editor.
