Vince Porter started as Executive Director at Oregon's film office late in 2008, and in 2009 he helped bring in the highest amount of film and television production to the state since the office's inception. In 2011, Oregon nearly doubled the output of 2009 thanks to three successful television series ("Portlandia", TNT's "Leverage", and NBC's "Grimm"), one feature ("Gone" due in theaters in February) and several animation projects including LAIKA's "Paranorman". Prior to joining the Film Office, Vince was Vice President of Production for Showtime Networks where he supervised the production of over 160 episodes of television series and more than 32 television movies.
For the last two years of his twelve-year tenure at Showtime, Vince was in charge of the production department for Showtime's award winning Original Programming. Series under his supervision included "Dexter", "Californication", and "The Tudors".
Prior to his tenure at Showtime, Vince was Manager of Production at ABC Productions.
