A Writer At Heart

Baumbach got a BA in English from Vassar in 1991. For him, writing and directing were always linked, although he admits as a young man he’d written more than he directed. “I didn't come at it from a writing standpoint more than a directing standpoint, except that growing up, I didn't have the opportunity to shoot as much as I did to write.” As writer-director James Ponsoldt points out in his piece “Noah Baumbach: From Kicking and Screaming to Greenberg,” Baumbach’s first big notice was as a writer for the The New Yorker in November 1991.
