Neil Kopp

Neil Kopp (born 1979 in Portland, Oregon) is an American film, commercial and music video producer best known for his work on the films Old Joy (2006) and Paranoid Park (2007). Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Kopp attended the Vancouver Film School in British Columbia, Canada where he majored in Film Production. He spent his next five years after graduating in Texas and Oregon working as a production manager for commercial and music video production companies including Dallas' Big Fish Films and Portland's Food Chain Films. While with Food Chain, and with director and fellow Vancouver Film School alumnus Dennis Fitzgerald, he produced a number of music videos for Portland-based artists such as The Shins, The Dandy Warhols and The Decemberists. Kopp's feature film debut was Kelly Reichardt's Old Joy, a 2006 film about two reunited friends based in Mount Hood in Southeast Portland, where he grew up. After reading the film's script, he came aboard the project due to his familiarity with the story's locations, describing Mount Hood and the Bagby Hot Springs area as his "stomping grounds".
