Welcome to FreedRow Productions
“A man’s work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.”
– Albert Camus.
It went down like this…
FreedRow Productions consists of a one-man band, Federico Morales, with a team of frequent collaborators. It was started in Tokyo, Japan in 2008, but relocated to Vancouver, Canada in 2013. Since then, we have made a series of shorts, web series, and features.
Although started in Japan, FreedRow Productions is essentially a Canadian company. We are focused on telling Canadian stories and collaborating with Canadian cast, crew, and distributors. Of course, we intend to distribute internationally, but from a unique Canadian perspective both in content and themes.
The truth is that there is a saturation of content and platforms to see that content. For anybody who has sat down for a movie night and has spent twenty minutes just scanning what movie to watch on Netflix – you know the frustration of being overwhelmed with content. With such a huge amount of content, how can an independent production company get noticed?
Our approach is to make content that is unique; that falls outside of expectations. Movies tend to follow a formula, and it’s all the same – even the trailers have become predictable and repetitive. In contrast, we make content out of left field, unexpected, even a bit strange…
Will you like it? Will you consider it a good movie or show? We sure hope so, but one thing we can guarantee is that it will be different than what you have seen. A successful film for us is something that leaves an impression – maybe just a scene, an image, a piece of dialogue – but it leads to introspection, conversation, action.
