About Discover Films
Discover Films has been working in conjunction with Iris Filmworks and Synergy Media to produce television shows for select cities, towns, and regions for the last five years. We try to feature select areas with rich history and culture, and also highlight recommended businesses within that area who have a great story to tell. Discover Films is currently working on Discover Rhode Island, and future shows in consideration are in select towns in New Hampshire, Connecticut and Florida’s Treasure Coast.
We usually spend weeks determining the best opportunity for an upcoming show. Between the planning, interviewing, shooting and editing and final output of the show, the process usually takes around three months to put a show together.
Our shows are viewable on multiple streaming services including Amazon Prime Video, Roku, YouTube and often on local broadcast stations.
We have experienced videographers and producers who work tirelessly to put together a high quality production for each town or special episode that we undertake. In addition, they work with the some of the best and most advanced equipment in the filmmaking industry. A list of equipment used to put together a single show is below. In addition, we have all necessary licenses and insurance for our personnel and equipment.
