Roman Coppola

Roman Coppola began working on his father's films as a teenager. He was a soundman on The Outsiders and an associate producer on Rumblefish. He then attended NYU Film School, and after graduation produced five feature films, including The Spirit of 76. He went on to direct the special effects and second unit on Bram Stoker's Dracula (his visual effects team was nominated for a BAFTA) and second unit on Jack, The Rainmaker, and The Virgin Suicides, the directorial debut of his sister Sofia Coppola. He has also directed several music videos, working with such artists as Moby, Daft Punk and Wyclef, as well as the Grammy-nominated Walking Contradiction for Green Day and the notorious Peaches for The Presidents of the United States. His collaboration with choreographer Richard Koufey for Fat Boy Slim's Praise You earned him three 1999 MTV Music Video Awards: Best Dance Video, Best Direction and Breakthrough Video of the Year.

In 1996, Roman established a commercial and music video production company called The Director's Bureau with Mike Mills, through which he has directed commercials for companies including Levis, Coca-Cola, Adidas and The Gap. His campaign for GSN/Game Show Network was named one of Adweek's 20 Best of 2000.
