JUDITH PEREZ - CO-PRODUCER
Judith was born in the Dominican Republic and migrated to the United States at the age of four. Recipient of numerous awards including the Antony Metal in Arts and the Pell Award, she continued the pursuit of her career under a scholarship to the Rhode Island School of Design.
She earned a degree in Photography and Multimedia, coupled with a strong foundation in design. Her thesis, ‘Brown Sugar,’ was strongly influenced through her involvement in the RISD Museum’s Art Context where she
studied under the direction of large-scale installation artist Pepon Osorio.
Immediately after graduating from RISD, Judith moved to New York to begin her career in publishing. After working for companies such as American Media, Time Inc. and Conde Nast, it seemed only natural to incorporate film into her scope. Judith currently works for ABC and has taken up the role of co-producer for The Father’s Love as her first full feature film.
