Roth is make his teaching debut, leading Master Class in West Hollywood on April 16. The class is open to the public.

Roth says, “I teach my class to work backward from the editing room, imagining every shot your editor might need in the story telling and how it might be used. As time is of the essence it’s every bit important to know what you don’t need and to recognize when a necessary moment has been realized. Some of this comes from years of experience, but the great majority of it comes from working with the right people and communicating your design in a clear and accessible way.”

“Two of my greatest axioms are, “Directors must know themselves” and you must always put the camera where the story is.”
