Director Steven Goldmann’s “Trailer Park Of Terror” for Summit Entertainment, made its World Premiere as an official selection of Slamdance ‘08 where, to quote Sarah Walker of Fangoria Magazine; “On January 21st a new genre classic was born.” Audiences at festivals all over the world seem to agree! Based on the Imperium comic book of the same name, this was Goldmann’s first foray into a genre he has always loved.
Prior to “Trailer Park Of Terror”, Goldmann brought his style and storytelling ability to his debut feature film “Broken Bridges”, starring Toby Keith, Kelly Preston, Tess Harper, and Burt Reynolds for Paramount/CMT FILMS. In its inaugural week it garnered more than 20 million television viewers to make it the most watched original telecast in CMT history and has sold over a million DVDs.
2004 found Goldmann directing episodes of “Missing” for Lifetime and Lionsgate Television. The show, about a psychic FBI agent, starred Vivica A. Fox. Goldmann brought a new look to the psychic’s visions, an integral part the show.
Goldmann came to international prominence and became a director to watch in 1998-1999, winning the triple crown of Country music video world. His innovative direction of Faith Hill’s “This Kiss” took top prize with the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, and TNN Music City News Best Video of the Year. In addition, he was awarded Video of the Year by Country Music Television (CMT) and Nashville Music Awards for This Kiss, the 1998 Music Row Awards Best Video of the Year and a Telly Award (Kathy Mattea’s “I’m On Your Side”), the 1998 MVPA (Music Video Production Association) Award for Country Video Of The Year (Mary Chapin Carpenter’s “Better To Dream Of You”), and directed a BBC television special starring and about one of his heroes, Bruce Springsteen entitled “A Secret History”.
That period of time capped off a run of recognition in the music video world that started with consecutive CMT Director of the Year Awards (1996 and 1997) and ended with Rolling Stone Magazine citing Goldmann’s Shania Twain video for “You Win My Love” (one of 6 he directed for her) as the 5th most important/influential video of the 90’s.
