RESUME DETAILS
  • * Richard Pearce began his professional career in the late 1960's as a
    documentary cameraman. His early credits as a cinematographer include four
    Oscar-winning films: "Woodstock," "Marjoe," "Interviews with My Lai Veterans," and "Hearts and Minds." Pearce made his feature directorial debut with the period drama "Heartland" which won the Golden Bear at the 1980 Berlin Film Festival and opened the New York Film Festival's first Showcase of American
    Independents.

    His other feature films as a director include "Country" for which Jessica
    Lange received an Academy Award nomination; "No Mercy" with Richard Gere and
    Kim Bassinger; "The Long Walk Home" with Whoopi Goldberg and Sissy Spacek;
    "Leap of Faith" with Steve Martin, Deborah Winger and Liam Neeson; and "A
    Family Thing" with Robert Duvall and James Earl Jones.

    Some of his television credits include two films for HBO: "Witness
    Protection" (Tom Sizemore and Mary Elizabeth Mastrontonio) and "Dead Man Out"
    (Danny Glover and Reuben Blades); "Plainsong" (Aiden Quinn and Rachel
    Griffiths) for CBS; "South Pacific" with Glenn Close and Harry Connick, Jr.
    for ABC/Disney; and "Thicker Than Blood" (Mickey Rourke) for TNT. He directed
    the pilots for Fox TV's "Party of Five" and ABC's "Nothing Sacred" and episodes
    of "CSI Miami" and "Homicide." He was a co-executive producer and director on
    the series "Trial by Jury" for Dick Wolf and NBC.

    Recently, Pearce has also returned to making documentaries, including "The
    Road to Memphis" which he directed and photographed for the Martin Scorsese
    PBS series on the Blues; "The Judge and the General" which he executive
    produced; and the recent Academy Award nominated feature documentary "Food
    Inc," which he co-produced (with Eric Schlosser) and photographed.

    Pearce was recently elected to the board of governors of documentary branch
    of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
