Munrovia Pictures

Munrovia Pictures and Creator/Owner Greg DeLiso are partnering with Project Innovations to bring projects to life by documenting the processes that lead to successful projects. Video clips and film documentaries are an excellent way to showcase Project Innovations’ partnering and collaboration projects that rely heavily on thought leader and stakeholder involvement.

Greg is an accomplished film maker who attended the New York Film Academy’s one-year directing program and graduated in 2005.

Munrovia Picture’s, “Fun With Henrik Zetterberg” video went viral garnering over 50,000 views in two days. The success of the videos spawned “Fake Henrik Zetterberg”, a twelve episode web series that was launched on October 26, 2011 and has been featured on Yahoo Sports and The Huffington Post.

In 2011, Greg completed Canada’s Best Kept Secret, his first feature length documentary as director, editor, baker, cinematographer and producer. The film chronicles the life of RD Lawrence, a Canadian author/naturalist integral in the green movement of the 20th century.

In December 2013, Munrovia Pictures created a video that introduced the Sanitary Sewer Wet Weather Evaluation Project to the Ann Arbor public.
