BOSNICK BIO: Short Version (Click here for long version.)

I was born in 1937 in Universal, Pennsylvania, a small cement factory town just east of Pittsburgh. It had 600 inhabitants, 9 bars, a volunteer fire department, hundreds of acres of wilderness and a country club that hosted two PGA Tour events during my youth.

I graduated from Penn Hills High School in 1955, Dickinson College in 1959, then in 1965 earned my MA in the Motion Picture Department at UCLA, where I had the good fortune and the life altering experience of having Jean Renoir as a teacher

Three respectable documentaries, two for PBS stations, were the highlights of my cinema life.

In 1982 I attended the Zone VI Workshop in Vermont and in 1983 a weekend George Tice seminar.

I’ve had 29 one-person shows in venues ranging from museums, colleges, a university, one National Park and a vacant store in a small Texas town named Lampasas.

Ironically, a well-known Texas writer, Stan Redding, lived in that town and wrote a wonderful review in 1986 for The Houston Chronicle’s TEXAS section.

I’ve lived in the Pittsburgh area & Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Santa Barbara twice, Hollywood twice, New York City, South Bend, Indiana, Paris and Houston twice.

I hope that you enjoy some of my shows.

Please write something about one or more of them.
