Rick Rapier

Rick RapierSince placing in the Nicholl Fellowship with his first screenplay, and in Steven Spielberg's Chesterfield Film Competition with his second, Rick Rapier has been honing his craft, gaining a reputation for excellence in screenwriting, as well as for demonstrating an uncommonly deep understanding of what makes a screen story work. After making his first sale to Miramax, many other sales followed to the likes of MGM and to indie production companies. Since then, Rapier has continued to write specs as he feels inspired, optioning, selling specs, and writing screenplays for hire. On the advice of production mogul Robert Kosberg, Rick began to reshape his career in the new millennium as a writer-producer and became a partner in a production company, and eventually launched his own with partner Todd Fowler: Red Wood Studios LLC. Rick is a prolific writer and has penned over twenty-five feature scripts, plus many treatments that are ready to script. After relying on other producers to bring his work to the screen, Rick determined to ensure that his hybrid, uplifting and redemptive works make it to screen. And with intellectual properties continually being generated and acquired, Red Wood Studios is poised to entertain and uplift audiences for many years to come. While strategic funding partnerships are in development, Red Wood is always looking for additional funding partners. If you are interested, please email Rick at rick@redwood-studios.com.

Rick currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his wife and two children.
