Studio Visit with Gia Coppola

Gia Coppola is a photographer and filmmaker. She has shot for Japanese Vogue and co-directed a short film with Tracy Antonopoulos for Opening Ceremony starring Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst.

 

Gia’s talent has also captured the interest of fashion prodigy Zac Posen, who chose Coppola to shoot a film for his latest collaboration with Target. “She’s going to be the next Coppola force to be reckoned with,” Posen insists. "They just genetically, aesthetically, have something—they’re able to capture magic.” Gia is currently working on directorial work and resides in Los Angeles.
