Full-service production company, Strike Anywhere, expands with addition of Cori Cooperider as Executive Producer.
Cooperider’s career has encompassed in-house tenures at Aero Film, Psyop and Backyard Productions, and several years in the field as a freelancer. Her initiative-taking spirit attracted her to the Los Angeles and San Francisco-based Strike Anywhere.
“From the get go, I felt inspired by the entire team,” says Cooperider. “First and foremost, everyone here is a maker. The directors don’t wait for boards to roll in; they are constantly creating, from shorts to features to branded content and art. That aspect makes for an energizing and invigorating workplace, which fits perfectly with my own personality. Being multifaceted is an interesting and compelling story to tell.” She continues, “Strike Anywhere has a lot to offer in terms of the talent, as well as capabilities that span from creative services through post. We offer a solution, and if we don’t have the perfect team for a project in-house already, we’ll source it.”
