Paul Cuoco


I’m a narrative storyteller and themed entertainment designer who believes collaboration is essential to raising the bar and creating beautiful and emotionally resonant visual media. Whether the goal is to make you laugh, scream, think, or buy a product, emotional resonance is the key.

I’ve helped to create and build some of the most innovative themed entertainment experiences in the world including, Terminator 2:3D, The Simpsons Ride, and most recently King Kong 360 3-D and Transformers: The Ride – 3D.

In 2004 I wrote and directed the very personal award-winning holocaust short, Inheritance, and have written, produced, directed, and edited a number of other commercials (see my reel below) and short films including the post-traumatic stress drama Glazed and the awkward infertility comedy The Specimen.

I’m currently working on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for Universal Studios Hollywood and developing new original projects for the web, television, and film.
