This collection documents Nancy Savoca's filmmaking career from the early 1980s to 2012. The earliest items relate to various projects that Savoca directed during and immediately after her time at New York University in the early to mid-1980s, including two short films she produced as a film student. These materials include class notes, scripts, storyboards, and advertisements.
The bulk of the collection concerns Savoca's feature films, television episodes, and unproduced projects. These series include scripts, shooting schedules and storyboards, production information, photographs and advertisements, and artifacts; the series descriptions and subseries lists contain more detailed information about the specific types of items present for each production. The two publicity series consist of film festival catalogs, awards, and articles covering the entirety of Savoca's career.
The final series relates to Rich Guay, Nancy's husband. Documenting his work as a film producer, the series consists of materials related to various films; items include scripts, research material, shooting schedules, financial records, promotional clothing, and other documents directly related to these productions. This series also contains slides, handouts, and other materials from Guay's courses on film production.
The collection's audiovisual material will be digitized and available for research at a future date. Please contact the Special Collections Research Center for more information.
