Owner Ula Copeland, a former oceanographer who moved to Richmond from Warsaw, launched the company in 2010. She said she spent a year searching for a workspace before settling on the Pie Factory at 612 Hull St.

Copeland previously worked out of her home, and she said the move would give her space to house a freelance editor and director of photography.

“It’s a good investment for the future of the company,” Copeland said.

The firm conceptualizes, shoots and edits commercials and short films. Copeland’s clients have included First Capital Bank and Wal-Mart. The National Geographic Channel recently hired the company to serve as the East Coast production arm for a special about life the 1980s.

Copeland is the only full-time employee, but she hires freelancers depending on the needs of the project.

Copeland has a master’s degree in marine science and came to the United States about four years ago for a research project. She decided to stay and break into the production industry, working as a freelance camera operator and art director before launching Glossy.

The Manchester Pie Factor was developed by Pareto LLC. The building is a mix of apartments and commercial space. Other commercial tenants include property management group Bear-Granville and clothing retailer Nuwear.
