Lucky Fish is lead by Platon Trakoshis, who started his film career in 1992.

In 2009 he line produced the feature film Master Harold and the Boys, staring Freddy Highmore (Bates Motel) and Ving Rhames (Mission Impossible, Pulp Fiction). He then established his new company, Lucky Fish Productions out of a necessity due to clients wanting to work with him again.
