Jeffrey Gliwa, Blue Shark Pictures, Christopher Coppola and CR Coppola Enterprises just announced plans to build a high value, low budget film studio somewhere in the Bay Area, perhaps the Presidio, to be called Blue Shark Pictures, the name of Gliwa’s company.
This studio will be built in the architecture of Zoetrope, which was designed from inception to conception by Francis Ford Coppola.
Expanding on the indie tradition established in San Francisco by Christopher’s uncle, Francis Ford Coppola, they will employ film students, to both save money and stimulate what could become an indie hub for filmmaking.
“The whole method of how we do everything is from the Roger Corman world of B- movies—genre based,” Gliwa explained.
“A lot of what I do is about bringing independent film back to San Francisco,” Coppola said. “I have students working on professional productions all the time—learning by doing.”
