Realscreen | February 2, 2017

Ten new member companies have joined the Nonfiction Producers Association (NPA), lifting the organization’s membership to a total of 52 entities across the U.S. and Canada.

Of the 10 companies joining the NPA following last week’s 2017 Realscreen Summit in Washington, D.C. and 2017 NATPE in Miami, eight are production companies and individual producers, including Matthew Kelly and Michael Sorensen‘s prodco Anomaly Entertainment; I Am Homicide producer Blackfin Productions; Bottle Rocket Films, founded by Flower Hulihan; multimedia prodco INvelop Entertainment, launched by Brant Pinvidic; producer Diana Marcketta; Magilla Entertainment-owned Mix Tape Media from Seanbaker Carter; OAKZ Media-owned Pink Sneakers from founders John and Kimberly Ehrhard; and Red Rock Films, founded by 30-year TV veteran Brian Armstrong.

The remaining two are “associate” member companies, which serve the industry. They include Media Central, a global company offering crews, production and post; and Wise Entertainment Law, focusing on the negotiation of U.S. cable network agreements and other transactions relating to reality television shows.
