Red Rug Productions - About Us

RED RUG PRODUCTIONS is a UK based film production company, established in 2010 by Sina Bowyer, producing our slate of international, independent theatrical feature films.

We are currently developing and packaging Nefarious, a noir political thriller set in London that strikes a tone somewhere between Body Heat and House of Cards. Potential seed investors with an interest in EIS tax relief (see investment page) will be guided through the process by our experienced film investment lawyer.

We are also developing The Contessa, a crime romantic comedy set in New Mexico, which is a highly film incentivised state, with stunning settings. We have a talented executive team in place, key locations agreed, post- production facilities and a financing plan underway that reflects the project’s re-conceptualisation as a high concept US independent film.
