      Hailing from one of the most prominent movie-making families in Hollywood, Roman Coppola - second son of Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola - naturally entered the family business, but managed to carve his own path despite keeping his historic name. After growing up on the film sets of "The Godfather" (1972), "The Godfather Part II" (1974) and "Apocalypse Now" (1979), Coppola worked on the crews for his father's films "The Outsiders" (1983) and "Rumble Fish" (1983), before striking out on his own as a producer and music video director. While he earned a solid reputation for his experimental music video style, particularly on Fatboy Slim's "Praise You" (1999), he often worked behind the scenes as a second unit director for his father, sister Sofia Coppola, and friend Wes Anderson. Coppola performed second unit directing duties on "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992), "John Grisham's The Rainmaker" (1997), and Sofia's film debut "The Virgin Suicides" (1999), before making his own directing bow with the hip sci-fi feature "CQ" (2001). But Coppola stepped back from directing his own films to continue working for family on "Lost in Translation" (2003) and "Youth Without Youth" (2007), while creatively collaborating with Wes Anderson on "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" (2004), "The Darjeeling Limited" (2007) and "Moonrise Kingdom" (2012). While another directing effort was certainly always on the horizon, Coppola remained satisfied contributing on second unit as well as producing and co-writing widely acclaimed films with family and friends.
