After attending Emerson College, Schechter wrote and produced his first feature, "The Big Bad Swim," a comedy about an adult swim class in Connecticut, that starred Paget Brewster and Jess Weixler (which premiered at Tribeca '06). In 2007, he made his directorial debut with "Goodbye Baby", starring Fred Armisen, Kevin Corrigan and Alan Ruck, which premiered at the '08 Slamdance Film Festival. Recently, Schechter premiered his second feature, "Supporting Characters," at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, which has gone on to win critical acclaim and several grand jury prizes for best narrative film.
