Award winning former KIRO-TV news cameraman, and PM Magazine producer/director, Joe Coppoletta, along with his long-time L.A. producing team, is returning to Seattle to join with Victory Studios owner, and Executive Producer, Conrad Denke.
Joe recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest, after being based in Los Angeles for over 25 years. He has varied professional experience including VP of Production for United Way of America, where he produced and directed international films and PSA’s; director for CBS, ABC/Disney, and FOX network TV programming, international movies in Europe, commercials, corporate films, and documentaries.
The new team will be expanding Victory Studios’ scripted programming arm, beginning with pilot presentations for three TV miniseries, a feature film, high quality commercials, PSA’s, and corporate films.
“We will be filming almost exclusively in the NW. Together, we plan on creating projects with local talent; hiring actors, writers, and crew from the NW for projects filmed right here,” says Conrad.
“The Northwest has an extremely rich pool of talent, and is loaded with interesting and beautiful locations, which we plan on showcasing,” says Joe, who has filmed in more than 21 countries around the world. “It feels great to be back home.”
