Michael Goldstein


Michael Goldstein earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cinema Studies from SUNY College at Cortland.  After a stint in the production world, he was hired by the New York City Department of Education in 1999 to develop, design, and implement a television production studio and curriculum for MS 72 Magnet School of Broadcast Journalism in Jamaica, Queens.  For the next four years he recruited and taught students the craft of media journalism and video production.

In the summer of 2003, he was hired as the media production specialist for the Eastchester School District.  While his initial responsibilities were to film and edit school district events, in the 2004 school year he was asked to teach a film & video elective which has evolved into  three levels of film studies and an annual student film festival.

Mr. Goldstein takes personal pride in the many students from his program that have gone on to study film and have achieved distinction in the film and television production industries.
