REALITY+ is bringing genre back to reality.
No story is more compelling than character driven work that has something to say about the world we live in; about who we are as humans. We are dedicated to creating genre pieces that are about something. Film, theatre, trans-media, advertising, it does not matter. Our passion is to tell stories grounded in the real world that have a genre element pressing in from outside our accepted reality...
It's our genre, our company: Reality+.
Welcome to your new reality...
