Joth Riggs - Working with first time directors.
In this episode we talk with Joth Riggs (@jothriggs on instagram) about his experience working with first time directors.
Joth is an award-winning filmmaker whose film career spans 25 years and includes over 80 movies and television shows for all the major Hollywood studios. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Film Production, Joth got his start on the set of his first feature film, Pet Sematary II. From there he went on to work as a production assistant on the sitcom Coach on the Universal lot before ultimately landing at Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment. It was only after being accepted into the prestigious Director's Guild Training Program that Joth left Amblin to become an Assistant Director. After years of A.D.ing on everything from feature films like Starship Troopers, End of Days, and Suicide Kings with Christopher Walken to t.v. series such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Party of Five, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, and Baywatch among others, Joth made the move to the director's chair with several award-winning short films including Push, Shaken, and Heartfall, as well as the television series The Encounter. Joth is currently in pre-production to direct a suspense thriller later this year.
