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.
