About Verissima Productions


Who We Are

Rob Cooper

Rob Cooper, Creative Director, has thirty years experience as a
writer / producer / videographer / editor – for PBS and major market television stations, historical documentaries, and corporate communications. He has developed the production skills and professional resources to ensure that your story will be told with elegance.



Pam Pacelli

Pam Pacelli Cooper, President, has thirty years experience as a family therapist and oral historian. Growing up with elders born between 1869 and 1925, she learned the power of stories to teach, sustain, and inform the future. Her life and work experience have combined to make her an avid researcher and highly skilled interviewer and storyteller.




Why We’re Here

Pam had a vision for a company that would bring her communication skills and Rob’s production experience together with our shared love of preserving history. She named it “Verissima” to describe how we work to bring your stories to life so vividly that anyone watching will feel they are in the midst of the story as it’s being told.



What We’ve Been Doing

For over ten years we’ve been documenting significant historical events, promoting the goals of organizations and companies, and preserving the stories of individuals, beloved places, families and family businesses…creating a correspondence with the future.
