Verdi Productions is a fully funded film production company located in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, with additional satellite offices in Edgartown Massachusetts, New York City and LA. 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 film productions 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, Chad A. Verdi, Managing Partner of Verdi Productions and its subsidiary the Woodhaven Production Company, along with his partners has invested $50 million dollars into eight 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's most recent film, The Opposite Sex (Geoff Stults, Mena Suvari, Kristin Chenoweth) will be released in January of 2014 through Vantage Media International and Cinedigm. Verdi has produced additional five films in the horror/thriller genres through subsidiary The Woodhaven Production Company.
By the end of 2015, Verdi Productions will produce a total of 12 feature films with some of Hollywoods biggest stars, including four films produced in partnership with the legendary Martin Scorsese: Bleed For This (Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart, Katie Sagal, Kieran Hinds), Silence (Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Ken Watanabe), Bad Hurt (Theo Rossi, Ashley Williams) and documentary The 50 Year Argument (directed by Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi).
