FOR FILMMAKERS WITH EXTRAORDINARY STORIES TO TELL, 3311 PRODUCTIONS IS A COMPANY OF FILM LOVERS WHO TAKE MOVIEMAKING SERIOUSLY—NOT OURSELVES.
Founders Mark Roberts and Ross Jacobson launched 3311 Productions in 2010 with an eye toward developing and producing original content alongside pedigreed and emerging filmmakers. 3311’s goal is to develop and support original voices. Jennifer Dana heads film production for the company which has produced a diverse slate of films—In A World…, Big Sur, Approaching The Unknown, Mr. Right, Table 19, and most recently, Brigsby Bear.
At present, 3311 is gearing up for Kerem Sanga's new feature, THE VIOLENT HEART, a dramatic thriller starring Jovan Adepo (FENCES) and Grace Van Patten (THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES). 3311 and Material Pictures will finance and produce alongside 21 Laps (ARRIVAL, "Stranger Things”) and Ed McDonnell (PRISONERS, SICARIO).
Other upcoming projects include: THE FIFTH OFFICIAL, a co-production with Gran Via Productions, written and to be directed by Chad Hartigan (D: MORRIS FROM AMERICA)--a taut European thriller about a soccer ref who attempts to throw a match for the first time and SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL, written by Luke Paradise and to be directed by Gerard Johnstone (D: HOUSEBOUND), a kinetic neo-noir that plays out in real time over the course of a carjacking. Tracy Falco is producing with 3311.

He currently serves on the board of The San Francisco Zoo and The National Pastime Museum and lives in San Francisco with his wife and three children, all of whom root for the Giants.

HEAD OF SCRIPTED TELEVISION

He likes to spend his free time with his family, his pets (two dogs and two cats), binging, playing video games, and watching sports where he is a huge Seattle (Seahawks and Mariners) fan and will never root for the Giants.
Tony joined the team in the fall of 2015 to run film development. His past experiences include working for manager Jewerl Ross, Roy Lee's Vertigo Entertainment and helping to build up the slate of projects at Animal Kingdom Films (SHORT TERM 12, IT FOLLOWS, LOUDER THAN BOMBS).

She got her start in the CAA MP Lit department, spent 2.5 years developing features at Legendary Entertainment, and most recently worked at Matt Reeves' 6th & Idaho. When she's not binge-watching, Tracy can be found on the golf course. As a Bay Area native, she bleeds Giants orange and would never be caught dead in Dodger blue.
Anton serves as a Director at 3311 Ventures, where he manages the day-to-day operations of the fund. Before joining 3311, Anton worked at Homejoy Inc and Goldman, Sachs, and Co. He received his BA from Stanford University.
