Brad Marshland entered Harvard with the intention of studying medicine. Then one semester, the class he took just after “Inorganic Chemistry” each Tuesday was “Visual and Narrative Perspective in Film.” His choice was easy.
After Harvard, he studied film and social anthropology with the International School of America’s International Honors Program under such renowned filmmakers as Miklos Janco, Jean Rouch, Robert Gardner and Shohei Imamura.
For the past twenty years, Brad has been a prolific writer and producer in just about every medium. He has sold screenplays in Hollywood, had stage plays produced on both coasts, and has written, directed, and produced everything from commercial and public relations pieces to web content, museum installations, television documentaries, and feature films. His documentary work has been nominated for multiple Emmy® Awards and won two – including Best Documentary – for an hour-long PBS show on finding solutions to climate change. As a script doctor, he critiques scripts and prose for individual writers and production companies. Clients’ scripts have been bought and produced by Showtime, Norman Lear, Milos Forman and Sidney Poitier. He is also the author of the fantasy novel “The Imagicators.” and its sequel “The Imagicators and the Wind Between the Worlds.”
