At RPL, we are working with US, European, and Latin American production companies in order to reach world wide audiences with films that are both entertaining and enlightening, have style and substance, shot in English and dubbed into multiple languages for global markets. Action, drama, romance, suspense, thrillers, and faith based will be our trademarks in the US and countries such as Argentina and Spain.
