ABOUT

Tica Productions is a production company piloted by a passion for original, compelling and memorable movies that provoke audience demand. We believe it is the role of Producers to create conditions in which a screenwriter, director and a film's team can enact cinematic artistry. 

Well-versed in all aspects of crafting entertainment media, we guide select projects from genesis through to distribution. Our interests vary from film projects founded on independent financing to larger projects and/or collaborations that require the participation of other production companies and/or studios.
