“Chuck’s extensive production, directing and documentary film work with his
experience as a successful production company owner has made him an ideal
candidate for this position,” said Susan Kirkman, Brooks Institute campus
president. “His knowledge of the many facets of the industry will help shape
the program and assist our students as they consider a variety of potential
paths in motion pictures, television and emerging media markets.”

Braverman has run his own successful production company for more than 40
years, been a senior studio executive at Sony and a professor at the USC
School of Cinematic Arts. He has also directed many television episodes –
including “Baywatch,” “Melrose Place,” “Northern Exposure” and “Beverly Hills,
90210” – as well as several Movies of the Week and an independent feature
film. Most recently, Braverman has been the executive producer of the new
multi-hour series “Weed Wars” on the Discovery Channel and the co-founder and
managing director of the annual Westdoc Conference for documentary and reality
producers.

"Chuck has an eclectic background and extensive experience, from directing
dozens of episodic television shows, movies for TV, producing, writing major
award winning documentary programs and running his own production company,”
said Gail Fisher, department chair for the school of film | communication.
“With his industry experience, connections and vision, he will be a valuable
resource in taking Brooks’ film program to new heights."

Braverman has been nominated four times by the Directors Guild of America
(DGA) and won the DGA award for Best Documentary for “High School Boot Camp.”
In 2001, Chuck was nominated for an Academy Award® for his short documentary
“Curtain Call” about the Actor’s Fund Home in Englewood, N.J., where many
aging performers from Hollywood’s golden age told tales of their days in the
spotlight, some even still performing for one another. In the last few years,
Chuck has produced shows for Animal Planet, A&E, Discovery Times, HBO, TLC,
Court TV, MSNBC, Discovery Health, ABC, NBC and the Disney Channel.
