Instructor Bio
Fred Ritzenberg has been in the film business for the last twenty years, writing and producing motion pictures.  He teaches Screenwriting and Pitching at The Berkeley Digital Film Institute.

Ritzenberg produced and directed the critically acclaimed feature film, GOSPEL, which Variety called "technically and artistically, the greatest concert film since Martin Scorsese's THE LAST WALTZ.  Siskel & Ebert gave GOSPEL "Two Thumbs Up," and the New York Times, Janet Maslin hailed it, "Wildly Exhilarating."

Other Hollywood screenplays include: BROTHER ZACK for Joe Roth (Revolution Studios), WOODY for Ted Field (Radar Pictures), OFFICER BUDDY for Scott Kroopf (Intermedia Entertainment), THE LIMIT for Daniel Melnick (Columbia Pictures), TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT for Dick Clark Entertainment, and PENNIES A DAY for Nash Entertainment.

Ritzenberg was an instructor at the Academy of Art College, teaching hundreds of undergraduates the craft of screenwriting.  He also managed the writing department for The Ninth House Network, a cutting-edge broadband learning network, developing entertaining, story driven movies that utilized top authorities in the field of corporate management as on-camera talent.  He then became director of development, and wrote eight films that were produced for the network.

Ritzenberg holds a BA and an MFA in filmmaking from the S.F. Art Institute and is a member of the Writers Guild of America, West.
