Founded in 2006, Astropiano Films came to be thanks to a fateful meeting between Jessica Cook and Shannon Carter. The girls met at an improvisational class in college. Jessica took the class to get a director’s perspective, while Shannon took the class to hone her acting skills. The two clicked instantly and began plotting various film projects. Having recently received her first video camera as a gift, Jessica asked Shannon to collaborate on an idea for a music video that summer. Thus began the idea of their company.
Wanting to expand their ideas and not limit themselves to just the two of them, Jessica resolved to build the company. When the time came to choose its name, she thought about her two backup career plans – astronomy, and playing piano. Astropiano Films was born.
