RED RUG PRODUCTIONS is a UK based film production company, established in 2010 by Sina Bowyer, producing our slate of international, independent theatrical feature films.
We are now packaging and financing a martial arts thriller, Deadlined, to be shot in the Philippines and China in 2017, collaborating with Riwayat Films and its US based producers.
We are also developing Wedding Heist, a crime romantic comedy set in New Mexico, which is a highly film incentivised state,with stunning settings. After a successful scouting trip there, we have a talented executive team in place, key locations agreed, post-production facilities and a financing structure underway (see portfolio).
Nefarious is a noir political thriller set in London that strikes a tone somewhere between Body Heat and House of Cards. We seek a director and A-list lead actors. This could also be developed as a 2-3 part TV series.
White Royal and The Love Bus are high concept, higher budget, Hollywood style scripts that are available for acquisition to larger production companies and studios. Please also check out the White Royal portfolio, which is a “look book” for busy executives.
Sina is also a commissioned screenwriter, recently completing a comedy drama set in Italy with a director-producer team who are now raising finance.
Our short eco-thriller, Crude, is on the internatiional festival circuit, so far winning Best Foreign Featurette at Idyllwild in California and Best Environmental Film at the New York City International Film Festival, as well as 14 nominations at other international festivals. It stars Rupert Frazer (Foyle’s War/The Bank Job) as the oil boss, Cengiz Dervis as an eco-terrorist, Kate Braithwaite as an environmental journalist, and Michelle Greenidge as the bereft Nigerian mother.
The film has screened on Shorts TV and is streaming on Indieflix.
Next up: Ambrosia
A suicidal old lady plans to move out to the homeless where she is targeted by a scientist who wants to try his age reversal drug on her. When he’s killed for his formula, Agnes finds a secret stash and goes on the run: now a murder suspect with one chance at the love of a lifetime.
Sina and Peter plan to co-direct Ambrosia, a magical realist drama, with multi-award winning composer Halfdan E Nielsen (Borgen) attached. More updates coming soon on lead cast and pre-production.
We are looking for a run down mansion as the main set, with all of the outdoor scenes planned to be shot around Ladbroke Grove and Portobello Road.
We also need to raise the budget of £15,000, so please contact us if you would like to invest in this film:
