A 6-year-old Bethlehem multimedia production company, Green Leaf Productions, has teamed with companies from Los Angeles and Lake Tahoe, Nev., to form Big Monster Entertainment.
Rudy Vegliante, president and CEO of Green Leaf, said his company has previously worked with Lazarus Films LLC (Los Angeles) and Tenacity Entertainment LLC and that the formalization of the new company will enhance their ability to collaborate.
"We each bring something to the table that is unique," Vegliante said. "This [company] allows us to all benefit from the collaboration."
He said that while each company will keep its own identity, the formation of Big Monster Entertainment will help them work together to obtain and work on national and international projects, including feature films, documentaries and scripted and reality television.
For example, the three are collectively working on a project to create a weekly children's program for the Boy Scouts of America.
"We're still going to do local projects," said Vegliante, but he hopes the new company will accelerate the companies' growth in the entertainment industry.
