Real to Reel Productions Inc.
Real to Reel Productions, helmed by Bill Spahic and Anne Pick, produces award winning films with compelling stories, strong characters, across a broad spectrum of subjects from series to docs to features.
Their latest film ANIMISM:PEOPLE WHO LOVE OBJECTS premiered last September and is enoying worldwide sales including Australia. Current production includes: ECCENTRICS and NO LIMITS both feature docs directed by Academy Award winner John Zaritsky respectively celebrating people who dance to the beat of their own drum and according to a study live longer, happier, healthier lives than the rest of us and the thalidomide survivors still fighting for justice 50 years after this crippling drug was released internationally. Their German co-production GAMBLING ON EXTINCTION is also about to go into production. Real to Reel also has signed four co-pro agreements, two in 3D, with Norm Wilkinson’s Visionquest in Queensland and look forward to launching them later in the year.
I am interested in meeting potential co-pro partners interested in series suitable for both domestic and international markets particularly in wildlife and 'non destination' focussed travel shows.
