Coppola Productions was created to support the launch of ANGELESIS,

a First-Of-Its-Kind work of Celestial Fiction–of such Spiritual Significance that a single fucused Production Company was formed to bring ANGELESIS to Mankind in Print and Film.

Our primary thrust is to present readers and movie audiences world wide with exciting new concepts for them to ponder, portraying the contemporary situations of  life on Earth with a new perspective of “What if…”
