Dinah Rodriguez is an Executive Producer at award-winning production company Park Pictures founded by Jackie Kelman Bisbee and Lance Acord. Dinah was the company’s second full-time staff hire and helped build the company from a small New York shop to an internationally recognized film and commercial production house with a roster of 25 directors.
Dinah was born in Cape Canaveral, Florida, where her father worked as an engineer at NASA on the Apollo 11 mission. The family later returned home to his native Puerto Rico where Dinah was raised. She graduated from Swarthmore College with a B.A. in Art History and a Masters degree in Cinema Studies from New York University. Tired of being broke on the PhD academic path, Dinah abandoned her studies in Culture and Media a few credits short of another MA degree and found herself working behind the craft service table where she met Jackie, Jackie’s dog Betty and Jackie’s friend Eric. After several years as a freelancer, Dinah joined Park drawn to Jackie and Lance’s vision. She also married Jackie’s friend Eric.
Dinah has worked on numerous campaigns with incredibly diverse and talented directors and creatives over the years. She’s recently produced campaigns for Audi, Google, Fage and Corona with AG Rojas, Terri Timely and Scott Lyon. She has also produced several art films with director AG Rojas for the Whitney 2018 Biennale and the upcoming Smithsonian exhibition “Men of Change”.
She currently resides in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn with husband and son, and is carefully considering becoming an influencer.
