David Rodwin

Jade Lake Media
Storyteller/Filmmaker/Crowdfunding Consultant
San Francisco, CA
A winner of The Moth StorySLAM, David has been telling stories live-in person, on screen and on stage for the last 20 years.

David founded RIPFest, the first of its kind for short time-frame digital filmmaking events - making 6 new short films in 16 days – mostly movie musicals with over 100 artists who’d never met. In 5 years, David produced 60 films (and 170 ten-minute stage musicals) with talent including Emmy winner DJ Javerbaum (former head writer of The Daily Show), Oscar-winner Jack Lechner, Emmy-winning writer/producer Rachel Axler (Veep), and Executive Producer Alex Woo (True Blood). The Sundance Institute acknowledged his work with RIPFest, by inviting him to participate in their 2005 Producer’s Conference.

David went on to work in TV as a Writers’ Assistant and/or Script Co-Ordinator on Swingtown (CBS), HawthoRNe (TNT) and JONAS L.A.

His feature screenplays range from the coming-of-age tale THE JETTY, a finalist in the Page International Screenwriting Awards, to the epic bio pic BERNSTEIN IN PALESTINE which was a finalist in the 2013 Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab.

Before working in film, David studied at Princeton, Juilliard and Northwestern and was a writer/composer for new opera and music theatre. He wrote 9 evening-length stage works from operas to solo shows, presented by dozens of venues from The Public Theatre to LaMaMa and developed at venues from The O'Neill Playwright's Conference to Sacred Fools.

His one-man ‘hyper-opera’ VIRTUAL MOTION, which he toured to over 20 venues, the LA Times wrote was, “Dazzling…The stage truly belongs to Rodwin”. And the San Francisco Guardian declared it was, “Inspiring… Anyone who thinks theater has no new territory to explore should take a look at Rodwin.”

And David wrote his first book NEVER MEET YOUR IDOLS, about the month he spent with master monologist Spalding Gray who mentored David as his madness consumed him and lead to his eventual suicide. David is currently writing his second book, FUCK TINDER about dating in San Francisco.
