New York Film Academy Guest Speakers

Matthew Arnold


The writer and creator of Siberia, Emerald City, and Shadow People, Matthew Arnold, visited the Los Angeles campus of the New York Film Academy in 2017. Students from several writing classes attended the event.

Arnold read pitches for each of his most recent projects and gave students advice on how to refine their pitches. “I like to do a little research (before a pitch), so I have something to talk to the executives about.” Before his career as a writer, Arnold served as a crew member on Quentin Tarantino’s classic Jackie Brown.
