Producer/Partner/Founder, Double Hope Films
In the early 90’s, American Independent Film burst on the media scene with the promise of new visions, new stories, and new approaches. Ted Hope was among the first producers to emerge from the pack and remains one of the few consistently delivering vital and exciting new work. As times, platforms, and tastes change, Ted’s work continues to break new ground, reach new audiences, and define the term “Independent.”
A survey of Hope’s films-numbering close to seventy-includes many highlights and breakthroughs of the last two decades including MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, 21 GRAMS, AMERICAN SPLENDOR and HAPPINESS. Hope now has twenty “first features” to his credit, including those of Alan Ball, Todd Field, Michel Gondry, Hal Hartley, Nicole Holofcener, Ang Lee, and Bob Pulcini & Shari Berman, among others.
