Terra Mater Premieres Theatrical Label CineMater

Having made its mark in the production of exceptional high-end documentaries for television, Terra Mater Factual Studios is going big – big screen, that is.

The wholly owned division of Red Bull Media House has established a movie production banner, CineMater, that’s turning out highly anticipated productions like The Way of the Eagle, a feature helmed by award-winning Spanish director Gerardo Olivares which stars popular French actor Jean Reno.

CineMater is dedicated to producing content across a diverse range of genres for a broad demographic of international cinema audiences, with all storytelling rooted in fact. The label’s first release will be DXM, a high-octane contemporary thriller directed by Andrew Goth (Gallowwalkers) that explores the real-world possibilities of quantum mechanics, taking the audience on a gripping journey into new worlds and dimensions. The Way of the Eagle is an exploration of human and animal relationships that combines scripted narrative with wildlife footage captured over four years in the mountain ranges of Austria and South Tyrol.

CineMater productions will fall under three pillar brands: Terra Magna, which will produce documentaries for the big screen; Real Fear, which will focus on films that are inspired by true events; and Wild Drama, productions in which nature plays a primary role.

South Korea’s KT partners with Red Bull Media House

South Korea’s leading and largest telecommunications company, KT, has formed its first partnership with Red Bull Media House, a deal that will deliver 150 long-form video-on-demand titles for KT’s Olleh TV service.

Olleh TV is the biggest IPTV player in South Korea, with over five million subscribers, around 70 percent of the market share and the country’s largest number of TV channels.
Premium Red Bull Media House titles in categories such as sports, lifestyle and documentary were selected to appeal to a wide range of Olleh TV viewers, and the high quality of the programming is an especially good match for the service’s diverse channels in various genres. Among the programs are for example “Break’n Reality,” which provides a rare look into the private and personal worlds of top breakdancers, and “eXplorers – Adventures of the Century,” which profiles a dozen of the world’s most extraordinary adventurers as they brave previously unexplored challenges on land, sea and sky, and the fascinating documentary “Mission to the Edge of Space: The Inside Story of Red Bull Stratos”.
