Red Rock Films launched in 2010 with three hours for Nat Geo Wild that documented the life-and-death drama of creatures struggling to survive along the Mississippi River during a major flood. The New York Times called the series “stunning,” “dazzling” and “jaw-dropping.” Since then we have grown rapidly, bringing on award-winning filmmakers and senior creative talent to become North America’s largest producer of blue chip natural history and much, much more.
In addition to visually stunning and compelling natural history we now create a range of science, reality and history series as well as short form digital programming. Our dynamic development teams in the U.S and South Africa (RED ROCK FILMS INTERNATIONAL) are committed to developing an increasingly broad range of compelling factual formats and series. This is reflected by projects currently in production, which include the epic ‘Planet of the Whales’ for National Geographic, a major new series for Netflix and the completion of over 100 digital shorts and series for a range of clients.
Well connected and technically innovative, we work with an extensive network of best-in-class show runners, filmmakers and editors. In 2016 Red Rock Films produced a first-ever virtual reality simulcast for our eighth Shark Week special Isle of Jaws. Viewers watched the show on cable, and at the same time experienced an entire act in VR through Facebook. From 4K to 3D and VR, our shows, both long and short form, utilize the latest equipment to ensure the best possible results visually and editorially.
