Exploring New Horizons

Riverview Studios started an exciting new international collaboration with a European company, Empathetic Productions which is located in Gdańsk Poland. Empathetic Productions is the creation of Anna Kilian, a journalist and filmmaker who spent the past 10 years in the US developing her talents and her portfolio. James Parker is well known for his international projects with clients like TYCO International, TV Asia, SOSS Peace and the Concordia Forum to name only a few. In January 2016, the two companies collaborated on a documentary trip to Sarajevo and Albania, telling the story of how the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom is working to build bridges to peace between Jewish and Muslim cultures. The three week trip was an opportunity to explore new production techniques and to develop a working model for cloud based editing utilizing Forscene, Adobe Premiere and Skype, where footage can be shot and edited simultaneously on two continents. Empathetic Productions will be helping Riverview Studios with projects on European soil, supplying Riverivew Studios with local resources, including crew, equipment and space. There is nothing impossible, only possible for Empathetic Productions. Stay tuned for more upcoming collaboration between the two companies.
