Company Summary

Filmmaking is an addiction full of tremendous highs and unbelievable lows. It takes passion, persistence, and unending love to make movies and more importantly, good business sense to bring the next one into the world. This is why Sterling Rock Productions creates films and believes in the business of filmmaking. Our fans are women, 51% of the movie going audience, and we believe in compelling family friendly stories with positive messages.
