LR-Bulltiger Productions logoBulltiger Productions and Randall Dark announced the launch of a new film studio based in Austin, Texas. The first phase of the new facility includes a 10,000 square foot sound stage, along with a 2,500 square foot greenscreen.

The production house has eschewed the traditional media development methods, where an intellectual property is developed in separate silos for film, games and television. Instead, Bulltiger develops all projects simultaneously, combining state-of-the-art technology from across media genres.

“We watch television on our phones and surf the internet on our televisions,” said CEO and founder Stephen Brent. “The idea of developing for one specific media is becoming more and more obsolete. This partnership with Randall is perfect. We all have a strong vision of where the industry is going, and we want to be on the front line.”

Bulltiger Productions was formed in 2011 to develop film, games, mobile apps and graphic novels. Dark is the founder of HD Vision in New York City and Dallas, a co-founder of HD Vision Studios in Los Angeles and a member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and of the Consumer Electronics Association’s Academy of Digital Pioneers.

As Randall and Bulltiger compared notes early on, they discovered similar visions of what makes projects successful.

“Bulltiger is a place where the latest technology trends meet with professional production methods, smart storytellers and an innovative vision,” said Dark.

The team has several projects underway, including documentary and narrative films and a film technology festival. The studio, which is planning an open house in January, is currently available for rent.
