INFINITELY POLAR BEAR premiered in Dramatic Competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and is set to be released by Sony Pictures Classics in May 2015.
Bingo has produced and executive produced several other films, including: Tony Kaye’s DETACHMENT (starring Adrien Brody, Christina Hendricks, James Caan, and Lucy Liu); 2012 Sundance Film Festival Opening Night Film, HELLO, I MUST BE GOING (directed by Todd Louiso; starring Melanie Lynskey and Blythe Danner); 2010 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award-winner HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE (directed by Josh Radnor; starring Radnor, Malin Akerman, and Kate Mara); Werner Herzog’s MY SON, MY SON, WHAT HAVE YE DONE?

Before joining Paper Street, Bingo produced the Emmy-nominated documentary BORN RICH, teaming up with renowned documentarian Jamie Johnson (THE ONE PERCENT). The film, which explores the lives of various children of the filthy rich, premiered at Sundance and was picked up by HBO, where it has aired ever since. Shortly after BORN RICH, Bingo left the film industry to produce music. He worked with legendary singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, among others, co-writing the hit song, “Conchy Tonk,” which was also the working title for Buffett’s 2004 LICENSE TO CHILL album. In its first week of release, LICENSE TO CHILL skyrocketed to #1 on the Billboard charts, knocking off Usher’s “Yeah!.”
