Paul Cuoco

Founder, Producer, Director


I am an award-winning Producer, Themed Entertainment Designer, Filmmaker, and Consultant with 20 years experience delivering some of the most spectacular story-based entertainment experiences ever created.  I lead teams of talented artists, craftsmen, and technicians, to produce films, branded media, commercials, events, and attractions that are emotionally rooted in story.

As a member of Universal’s Studios Themed Entertainment Development Department, Universal Creative, I oversaw the invention, design, and installation of audio-visual and projection systems for Universal’s ground-breaking media based attractions including, The Simpsons Ride, King-Kong 360 3:D, Transformers: The Ride, Fast & Furious: Supercharged, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

As a filmmaker, I have produced and directed a number of commercials and branded films for clients such as Volkswagen, Famous Footwear, and others.  I have also written, directed, and edited several festival competition short films including the award-winning holocaust short, Inheritance, the viral micro documentary Pride of the Jaguar, and the awkward infertility comedy, The Specimen (currently being broadcast on the ShortsHD channel).

Having recently relocated from Los Angeles, CA to Gilbert, AZ, my creative consultancy Not Afraid! is now available to tell new and interesting stories, create unforgettable experiences, and help myself and my clients to thrive.
