Dapper Penguin Entertainment Aims to Future-Proof the Entertainment Industry



Dapper Penguin

Executive producer Jacob Zetino is an accomplished fourteen-time award-winning producer who has experience in film, television, and digital production. He is the founder and CEO of Dapper Penguin Entertainment in Beverly Hills, California, where he is now beginning the expansion of multiple divisions within the company, adding television, media, and currently developing a platform that will rival Hulu and Netflix.

Dapper Penguin seeks to give audiences premier content, from the latest theatrical releases to original independent films. The studio aims to capture the attention of audiences around the world by focusing on timeless storytelling enhanced by the most innovative technologies.

Jacob strongly believes that the current times are perfect for creating another platform so that audiences may have more media to consume. But unlike rival platforms, Dapper Penguin doesn’t focus on streaming just the highest-grossing films but also content made by independent artists from all over the world who wish to have more support for their art.

What gives Dapper Penguin its edge from the competition is its ingenuity. The team behind the new company continues to grow with many great executives, creatives, and talents that have worked on all forms of content. The entertainment company has its finger on the pulse of technology, and they believe they can infuse it into more traditional forms of production to take advantage of our digital age. Cutting-edge technology gives them a dynamic approach that allows them to cut production costs and have faster turnarounds in completing content. This, in turn, means they can generate more content faster than their competitors.

This gives them an upper hand in the future in the event of another occurrence, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, as they can continue to work through when traditional methods must cease.

Titles that have won accolades for both Jacob Zetino and Dapper Penguin Entertainment include The Devil Lives in Clarksville County, Daydream, Blood Bonds, and the series Fuzz & Malloy, in which the studio worked with award-winning writer and creator Joe Wakefield. 

Jacob received his bachelor’s degree from the Los Angeles Film School in Hollywood, California, majoring in both producing and filmmaking. He graduated from the conservatory of acting program at the New York Academy. He is a US Army veteran and a member of Veterans in Media & Entertainment and the American Legion Hollywood Post 43 in California. Famous members include Hollywood luminaries such as Clark Gable, Charlton Heston, Mickey Rooney, Gene Autry, Ronald Reagan, Stan Lee, and more.

He continues to work endlessly in developing and producing more content for his production company, where he shares with his teams the goal of strategizing the use of technology to reduce production costs to give their company an edge over the competition while still creating quality content that rivals HBO, Netflix, and others.

Recently, Dapper Penguin welcomed onboard the executive team, which features Liz Vacovec as president of Dapper Penguin Entertainment and Nicole Layson and Daniel Sydnor as senior vice presidents of film and television. Currently in negotiation is for a president of the new platform, Dapper Penguin Cubed (DP³).
