About the Filmmakers:

GLENN WITHROW

CEO |Writer | Producer | Director

 

As an actor, Glenn starred and co-starred in over thirty movies and television series. His most memorable time as an actor was when he was cast in TheOutsiders, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. He went on to work withCoppola on his next three films, Rumble Fish, The Cotton Club andPeggy Sue Got Married. “The experiences I had working with Francis were master classes in directing. I was there as an actor but also as a film student. I studied everything Francis did, from how he worked with the crew and talent, to his relationship with his children on the set. I loved how he involved them in every aspect of his filmmaking and I have made it a point to follow that example with my family.” After working for fifteen years in front of the screen, Glenn made the decision to tackle new challenges: writing, directing and producing. In his mid-thirties and with a newborn daughter, he stopped his acting career and went to film school, determined to be an independent filmmaker. He became a member of The Writer’s Guild of America(WGA) after selling his first script to Walt Disney Studios. He eventually went on to build his own photography and production rental studio in Burbank, CA, which he operated for ten years. His first feature, The Mooring, a suspense thriller which he co-wrote with his wife Hallie Todd and daughter Ivy Withrow, was picked up for distribution by Lionsgate Entertainment. TheMooring debuted at the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival(NIFFF) where Glenn and his family were guests of honor. He has recently completed the award-winning film The Last Champion.
