Richard T. Moore II, CEO of Judah Productions and a member of SAG-AFTRA, was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. He began his theater and film career at Towson University. He entered SPADES, a short film he wrote and co-produced into the American Black Film Festival. After receiving great feedback from HBO executives, he then decided to move to LA.
While living in LA, he positioned himself into a class with eight working television and feature film writers. Being around so may talented writers pushed him to really focus more on the craft of writing scripts. He learned so much that it prompted him to move back east and begin filming more of his own projects. He became a studio and field producer at Channel 10 in Fairfax, VA. He then entered THE PAPERMILL, a television pilot that he wrote and executive produced, into the ITVFest and NYTVF.
Soon after he produced, directed, and starred in the play THE CHAMP during the Artscape Festival in Baltimore. The festival draws in thousands of people over a summer weekend, and the play had great reviews.
AWAKEN is his latest and best project that he has taken on. It is also the first project under Judah Productions LLC.
