Who We Are

Red Productions is a full-service, award-winning, creative video production company based in Fort Worth and Los Angeles. Translation: We’re basically a bunch of film geeks with the tools and talent to accomplish your goals to a level beyond what you’ve envisioned. (Blown minds are kind of our benchmark.) We stay ahead of the curve, constantly pursuing new, innovative approaches but always with the purpose of creating lasting impact. We dream big, then we wake up and make big happen.

We’re not here to press ‘record’ – we’re here to find your story and go tell it to the world. We love what we do, and we can’t wait to share our passion with you. Just say the word.
