Brendan Noel Ward’s career in film and television balances writing and producing with teaching a new generation of artists.
His television writing includes scripts for Maude, (Emmy nomination) and for Good Times Harry (CBS). He served as Story Editor at Procter and Gamble productions for 10 years.
A professor of Film at Columbia University for over 20 years, Brendan has also taught at renowned international institutions: including the Film Academy (Vietnam), the Escuela Internacional de Cine (Cuba), the Dramatiska Institute (Sweden), and FAMU (the Film and Television Academy of Czechoslovakia). He has a M.F.A. from the University of Iowa Writer’s Workshop and is President of One Hand Clapping Pictures.
Currently, he is organizing the Higher Institute for Media Pedagogy, an E.U. training program for writer development. He is excited about the potential of the TV Writers Fund for the Future. He believes the skills and experience level of older writers have hardly been tapped and hopes his work here can help change that.
