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.
"Life on Jupiter," his documentary about Jens Nygaard, conductor and founder of the Jupiter Symphony orchestra, was aired on many PBS stations, including New York's WNET. It has won an EMMY, a Directors Guild nomination, and many other international festival awards and accolades.
Spinelli is a director-member of the Directors Guild of America.
