DAVID KOPLAN
     


In 2001, David founded Timbergrove Entertainment in order to develop and produce the kinds of films that he enjoys most -- intelligent, character and story driven works that have the potential for mainstream appeal.

In 2003, David produced the feature film Chrystal, which stars Academy Award Winner Billy Bob Thornton.  The film was written and directed by Academy Award Winner Ray McKinnon.  Chrystal appeared in dramatic competition at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival and was theatrically released by First Look Studios.
 

     


Also in 2003, David worked with Pulitzer Prize nominated playwright Adam Rapp to produce his feature film debut Winter Passing, which stars Ed Harris, Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel.  The film made its premiere at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival and was theatrically released in February 2006.

David recently completed postproduction on two feature films.  The first is Blackbird, which is written and directed by Adam Rapp and is an adaptation of Mr. Rapp’s award winning play of the same title.  Blackbird recently made its premiere at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival. The second film is Randy and the Mob, written and directed by Ray McKinnon.  Randy and the Mob stars McKinnon, Walton Goggins (The Shield, The Apostle), Lisa Blount (An Officer and a Gentleman, Chrystal) and Burt Reynolds.  It made its debut at the Nashville Film Festival in April, where it won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film and an award for Best Soundtrack in a Feature Film.  Randy and the Mob will be theatrically released this fall through Capricorn Pictures.
