Architects of Compelling Contemporary Myths

Inspired by a deep tradition of visual storytellers, Chris Reed Productions creates compelling narratives which resonate with niche communities and across broad cultures. Our myths, like those of old, are spread amongst these communities and cultures by their members. Becoming part of the cultural view of our target audience is the core to each of our projects.

Chris Reed Productions exists amongst a culture of creatives with whom we collaborate, and are inspired by, including Ana Roman, Christine Kohler, Nadav Benjamin, Derrick R Cuz, Claudia Lake, Patrick Xiong, Becka Diamond, Joel Henderson, Ricky Chapman, Azar Swan , The Dum Dum Girls, and many others.
