A Glowing Recommendation

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Ross Katz. I am a New York based filmmaker. I function as a Producer, Director, and Writer. I have twice been nominated for the Academy Award (Best Picture: IN THE BEDROOM, LOST IN TRANSLATION). In addition, I have won the Golden Globe, and recently the Best Director from the DGA and Best Screenplay from the Writers Guild of America. I have also been nominated for the Emmy twice.

I could not be more humbled or delighted to write to you on behalf of my mentor, Andy Bloom. You see, I would not have achieved ANY of the above without Mr. Bloom's mentorship. It began more than two decades ago when I was a hungry Radio/Television/Film student at Temple University. Andy took me under his wing, first as an intern, and then by hiring me to only be on-air, but to work in promotions and marketing.
When Andy moved to Los Angeles to run one of the most coveted stations in that market, he allowed me to follow him there. Not only did he house me, but he mentored me as I made the transition into film and television. Andy Bloom literally guided me to my next steps, which included working for Quentin Tarantino on RESERVOIR DOGS, and legendary director Sydney Pollack.

When I decided to move to New York to pursue work with the great Ang Lee, Andy counseled me on Producing and how to win the job. I have, to date, made nine films. I have spoken at Columbia University, NYU, and Temple University.

I can tell you that Andy Bloom offers real life experience, guidance, and mentorship within the world in which I work. His savvy understanding of both the artistic AND business sides of making movies and television is incomparable, in my mind. His knowledge of radio, too, is beyond compare. I would be very happy, at any time, to discuss Andy with you.
