Required Reading was founded in 2015 by an experienced partnership of three veterans from the studio, independent, and international media worlds who believe that the key to making great content is to invest in talented people. Their mission is to empower creatives to tell stories that embody truth and appeal to a global audience.
Collectively, they have worked on 15 feature films, raised over $37-million in independent financing, shot in more than 60 countries, worked on movies that have grossed over $3-Billion, and drink 14 cups of coffee per day.
