Harry Ufland began his career in the movie business at the William Morris Agency in New York, then went on to work at William Morris Los Angeles and Creative Management Agency (International Creative Management) before founding the Ufland Agency. During his time as an agent, Ufland represented such talents as Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Charles Grodin, Martin Sheen, Martin Brest, Ridley Scott, Catherine Deneuve, Marcello Mastroianni, Cher, Tony Scott, Adrian Lyne, Cybill Shepherd, Jill Clayburg, Ben Gazzara, Judy Davis, Keith Carradine, Christina Raines, Gena Rowlands, Terrence Stamp, John Hurt, and Peter Bogdanovich, among many others. As an agent Ufland packaged such films as Once Upon A Time in America, Saint Jack, The Duellists, They All Laughed, Blade Runner, The King of Comedy, and The Deer Hunter.
After 24 years as an agent, Ufland partnered with Joe Roth to form Ufland Roth Productions and then his own production company, Ufland Productions. His producer credits include The Last Temptation of Christ, One True Thing, Not Without My Daughter, Snow Falling on Cedars and Crazy/Beautiful, to name a few. The latest development in Ufland's long career came when he began a tenured professorship at Chapman University's Dodge College of Media Arts three years ago, while continuing to produce. While there he has been instrumental in the school's rise to #4 on the Hollywood Reporter's American film school rankings, and #7 worldwide.
