Interview with 'Turf Valley' Creators Adam Rodgers & Tom Ventimiglia
About Adam Rodgers
Father-to-three Adam Rodgers is a writer/director whose work is thematically steeped in dad-ness, from his first spec screenplay sale to Universal about a cop-dad (“Moving Elliot”) to his first produced tv movie about a prison guard/track coach-dad (“Racing for Time”) to his feature film directing debut ("At Middleton") about a college-tour-dad. His Academy Award shortlisted film, “The Response,” a courtroom drama about the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals, has no dad stuff whatsoever – but hey, Academy Award shortlist!
About Tom Ventimiglia
Just when his wife became pregnant with their first child, Tom decided to make "The Founders," a documentary about the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA). With the birth of his third child, his feature screenplay “When We Fall” earned a development grant at the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund in Film and Media at Johns Hopkins University. Now he teaches screenwriting at BSA's Charles C. Baum Film and Visual Storytelling Department. His fiction has appeared in magazines such as The Baltimore Review and The Potomac Review. Tom is widely considered to be the daddiest dad in all of daddy-land.
