Ride5 Films has been commissioned to produce
a travel series sponsored by Smart Car for a new premium YouTube channel. Filming in Austin, TX begins shortly. Additional cities to be filmed in 2014 are being planned.
Take a look at our updated showreel which features a selection of work we're proud of. Some of it's old, some of it's new. All of it's good, fact-based cinema. Bon appetit.
'Evolution of Skate' is a creative retrospect of skateboarding from the 1970s to today, covering the evolution of skate tricks, style, filming and music.
Earlier this year we travelled to Virginia to document the state's landmark anti-abortion legislation. While editing the feature documentary we're also in talks with networks about developing a broader series.
SUCCESS WITH FAILE
Watch as FAILE’s founders discuss their impressive body of street art. We weren’t the only ones impressed; the short doc was featured on many sites, including designboom.com.
We let narratives develop organically then handcraft the post-production and design elements to develop stories that look as powerful as they feel.
Every step of creating the film is carefully designed and planned with high attention to content and detail.
Research & Scripting
We offer a fleet of state-of-the-art cameras and rigs allowing us to deliver visually distinct and compelling films.
Sound & Lighting
Through traditional workflows and high definition technologies, we achieve creative solutions for the final product.
