Red Line Studios
Red Line Studios is a full service production company and post production suite located in lower Manhattan. We have been in business for over 15 years.
Starting out as a film production studio, Red Line produced independent feature narratives and documentaries with budgets ranging upwards of three million dollars.
During it’s inaugural year, Red Line Studios hit the ground running with the production and post of two feature films-- “All Screwed Up,” a scripted narrative for Indican Pictures, and “Eyes of the Mothman,” a documentary for Destination America. Two more scripted features were to follow through Red Line, the independent thriller “Rachael Marks” for Vanguard Cinema, and “The Snitch Cartel,” Colombia’s Best Foreign Language Film entry at the 85h Annual Academy Awards. Red Line also co-produced “Fetish,” a scripted indie for iTunes that starred Joan Collins, who won a best actress award at the NYC International Film Festival.
Wanting to expand beyond feature films, Red Line then began producing a variety of commercials for major agencies and companies. Airing both domestically and internationally, these spots and clients included Sony, Harrah’s, Vonage, Paramount Pictures, ESPN, K&L, BBDO, All State, ALoft, and Seinfeld. These campaigns involved multi-state cross country productions of 60+ crew members and posed creative challenges such as recreating the original sets of Seinfeld from scratch.
In 2011, Red Line began working in Television on number of development projects for a variety of outside production companies and major networks. After helping successfully launch the food series “Chow Masters,” for Travel Channel, Red Line became a go-to for network development overflow. Working with companies such as RockShrimp, The Jarrett Creative, Cineflix, Leopard, Nutopia, Wheelhouse, Stickfigure, Meryl Poster’s Superb Entertainment, Endemol and Truly Original, Red Line has produced over 75 sizzles, proof of concepts, and pilots. Many of these development projects have gone on to be greenlit to series such as: “Wingmen” (OWN), “Boss Nails” (Oxygen), and “Sneaker Pawn” (Facebook Watch). After helping so many clients achieve success with their development slate, Red Line expanded again to build out their own in-house development team.
Red Line has developed, executed, and sold television programming to BET, Nickelodeon, FYI, Destination America and other media outlets and networks. Projects have included a 52 episode romantic comedy series, a travel series in the spirit of “Dirty Jobs” which was licensed world wide, and a super bowl special for Nickelodeon.
With the ever changing landscape of multimedia and the expansion of digital networks, Red Line has also created programming for online content providers. Working with Netflix, Amazon, Hearst Digital, Major League Baseball, Travel Channel, FYI, Unicef, and others, they have produced countless hours of scripted and unscripted online programming.
In addition to our internal creative development we also act as a production and post service provider. Our studio is a one-stop-shop with a tremendous amount of in house resources that include edit suites, audio suites, color correction, sound stages, and a green screen studio.
We are a company that believes in quality over quantity, and our goal is to always strive for an equal balance of technical and creative perfection.
