ABOUT PASTURE PRODUCTIONS
DIRECTOR/CO-WRITER: George Woodard is a Vermont Dairy Farmer with a SAG card. George spent several years in Los Angeles honing his acting skills on stage and film until he decided to return to Vermont to operate his family's farm. He realized that he could create theater events in Vermont just as effectively as in California. During this period, he created the Woodchuck Theatre Company (WTC), which featured numerous regional productions. "Pasture Productions" is the independent film part of WTC.
His film roles have been featured in "Timechasers", an Edgewood Studios/David Giancola film; Edith Wharton's novella "Ethan Frome" with Liam Neeson, Joan Allen and Patricia Arquette (Miramax Films), Anthony Hall's "Mud Season," and Nora Jacobson's "My Mothers Early Lovers" and "Nothing Like Dreaming." Television and video credits include "Rescue 911," and "Unsolved Mysteries." He, his son Henry and his family's farm were featured in "America’s Heart and Soul" (Buena Vista). "The Summer of Walter Hacks" was gleaned from his thirty-plus years of farming, theater and film experience.
PRODUCER/CO-WRITER: Gerianne Smart is the director of marketing and communications for ECHO Lake Aquarium & Science Center in Burlington, VT. For 15 years she operated her own advertising agency, Smart Communication, Inc., from her home in Ferrisburgh. Gerianne is a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and, while in NYC, performed in many productions off-off (off!) Broadway as well as bit parts in industrial films, print advertising and voice overs. She moved to Vermont in 1991 and sought ways to begin acting again. In the process, she discovered an effort to restore the historic Opera House in Vergennes, Vermont. She became actively involved as the organization’s president for seven years. Now the once closed (for 24 years) theater space is vibrant and active and has served as the anchor for a newly revitalized downtown in what, for years, was the "smallest city in the U.S."
