“I will present my creative process—juggling projects, connecting the dots, working in chaos. Since I’ve joined SFAI, I’ve been more prolific: produced/directed three feature films, developed a 360/VR live action narrative short, composed a piece for 8 pianos 32 hands, launched the Creative Cinema Collective in China, served as a speaker for Intel at CES/Las Vegas twice, did three PAH FESTS and was pulverized by my brother Nicolas Cage in the recent movie Arsenal.”
Christopher Coppola is Film Department Chair at SFAI and President of PlasterCity Productions, Inc. He has been a professional filmmaker and a champion of digital media for over thirty years. He created Project Accessible Hollywood (PAH), a non-profit, hands-on, digital film festival designed to reach the “everyday person.” Governor Brown appointed Christopher to the California Arts Council, where he advocates for art in our public schools. Christopher recently finished two feature films, both premiered at the Mill Valley Film Festival.
