Martin Torgoff cut his teeth as a filmmaker with the coming of the music video revolution and has since written, produced and directed many hours of television for broadcasters as diverse as VH-1, CNN, History, The Sundance Channel, HBO/Cinemax, and PBS.  His last documentary, Planet Rock: The Story of Hip Hop and the Crack Generation, produced for VH1, was nominated for Emmys in Outstanding Arts & Culture Programming and Outstanding Achievement in a Craft: Writing. His work includes groundbreaking multi-part series for VH-1 like The Drug Years, which was based on his last book. In 1987, Torgoff collaborated with Academy-Award winning documentarians Alan and Susan Raymond to make Elvis ’56, a film about one year in Presley’s life that is now considered a classic, and has been cited by Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney as one of their favorite documentaries.
