Double R Productions (www.doublerproductions.com ) marked the first month of its 25th anniversary year with President and Owner Rosemary Reed’s Filmmaker of the Month award from the District of Columbia Office of Motion Picture and Television Development.
“On our 25th anniversary year, I’m so honored,” Reed said. “Double R has had such a great working relationship with the DC Film Office over the years. We really appreciate the recognition.” Founded in 1987, Double R Productions has served clients as varied as major national newspapers, Fortune 500 companies, the US government, associations, corporations, local arts organizations, and many nonprofits. The communications and television production company produces mini documentaries for its clients under tight deadlines on a regular basis.
Double R projects include public service announcements, original programming, client image pieces, video news releases, and commercials. Additional services are media training and interactive video training projects.
Reed established her reputation in DC working for the FOX network as the executive producer of “Panorama,” the nation’s longest-running, live, daily talk show with Maury Povich. She also created Double R’s original program “Gospelrobics,” last aired on the PBS affiliate WHUT-TV. Since the mid-80s, Reed has produced and directed the National Association of Broadcasters’ Congressional PSA Program. She has served as a producer, director, and writer all over the world, winning numerous awards for her work including a local Emmy for writing and producing on a broadcast special for the AFL-CIO. Her pieces have been recognized through awards from CINE, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, American Women in Radio & Television, United Press International, Associated Press, and the National Education Association.
The DC Film Office launched the Filmmaker of the Month initiative to elevate the national and international profile of the city’s most talented filmmakers. Reed’s media experience both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, academic background in theatre and speech, plus teaching experience on the high school and college levels sets her apart from other professionals in the media industry, the DC Film Office said.
