Vik Chopra

Vik Chopra is a filmmaker, writer, on-screen personality, and all-around creative on a quest to change the world through storytelling, particularly through the lens of the queer community and those that have experienced the American carceral system. He has worked for PBS and KEXP, and today is the co-founder and director of production of Unincarcerated Productions. When he's not out fighting the system, he's usually spending too much time in the gym or listening to Britney Spears. He is also the first assistant director for the upcoming JoySauce Late Night, premiering later this year.
