"Over a decade ago, my client Raoul Mongilardi produced one of the first distributed and groundbreaking documentaries on the subject, 'The Changing Face of Autism.' More recently, just a few years ago in fact, we co-produced with Lisa Lew, a fundraiser for the local Los Angeles chapter of Autism Speaks, Gifting Your Spectrum," Cohen added.

He has produced a slew of other fundraisers as well, including those for Project Angel Food and Bailey House, an organisation that provides support for those with HIV, reported Variety.

"Each event is like a film in that it has a life in development, production and post-production or recap," said Cohen adding, "Producing events require patience, give and take, trouble-shooting, and a need to stay flexible with your team and talent to make the event shine, and most importantly, to keep the spotlight on the purpose of the event." Cohen is a talent manager, working with actors, musicians and fashion model clients under the banner of his bicoastal management company BAC Talent. He has also kept a firm toehold in the world of philanthropy.
