Verdi Productions is a fully funded film production company located in East Greenwich, Rhode Island and Edgartown Massachusetts, with additional satellite offices in New York City and Los Angeles. The company pursues all aspects of filmmaking, carrying projects from concept through postproduction.
Verdi Productions is redefining how films are made on the East Coast. Unlike other production companies that come to the Northeast, Verdi is establishing itself as a fixture in the Rhode Island community. Verdi Productions does not operate on a project-to-project basis, but instead functions like a west coast studio with established offices, full time employees and a continuous stream of product.
Over the past 5 years, managing partner Chad A. Verdi and his investment partners have invested over $100 million dollars into twelve feature films. The first film from Verdi Productions, Loosies starring Peter Facinelli, Jaimie Alexander, Michael Madsen and Vincent Gallo was released in 2011 in a major distribution deal with IFC.
Verdi has produced four films in partnership with Emma Tillinger Koskoff and the legendary Martin Scorsese. Verdi produced Bleed For This (Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart, Katay Sagal, Ciaran Hinds), and executive produced Silence (directed by Martin Scorsese starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Ken Watanabe), Bad Hurt (Theo Rossi, Ashley Williams) and the documentary The 50 Year Argument (directed by Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi).
