Martin Spinelli, Producer and Director

MARTIN SPINELLI
Producer and Director

Martin Spinelli has been a producer, director, and writer of documentary and communications programs since 1967. He began his career making television public affairs programs at Philadelphia's ABC-TV affiliate, where his documentaries won an Emmy, First Prize at the San Francisco Film Festival, the Ohio State Award, and several other awards. He also worked with NBC/WRC, in Washington, D.C. His previous documentaries reflect his interest in outstanding individuals.

Spinelli's experience includes video, film, and the new multimedia presentation formats, and his work has won many corporate communications awards: New York Film & TV Festival, Chicago Film Festival, CINE, and the AT&T Arthur W. Page Awards. He formed Interaction Media, in 1984, when interactive multimedia was a gleam in the eye of the Bell Laboratories' engineers for whom he developed programs to convey the future of communications. He has produced demonstration presentations for IBM and AT&T, and touchscreen programs that describe telecommunications software.

Spinelli is a director-member of the Directors Guild of America.
