Our Team

Red Bridge was formed in the spring of 2010.  A few weeks later, our small crew left for the Gulf of Mexico to begin its first project, a documentary about the massive oil spill off the coast of Louisiana.  After six sweat, mud and oil-filled months, we learned the hard way that making films isn’t easy.  With each project since, we’ve grown as storytellers, cinematographers, producers and editors, collaborators, critics and pelican-case packers.
