Rough House has been a fixture on the local scene for quite some time. Their reputation has been earned over time for their broad range of talent and skills and their dedication to the art of story telling. From indie films, to blockbusters, from corporate video to PSA’s to broadcast, live events and online marketing they’ve taken it all on with style and creative flair. A recent piece they did in collaboration with Westernized for Corning Glass has been credited as being the most watched corporate video of all time. No small feat.
Roger Krakow and exectutive producer Todd Lindo have put together a crack team of editors, designers and specialists in all aspects of production and post production. Formerly they were housed in the Presidio, as part of the SF Film Centre, but back in 2009 and they moved to the 550 Bryant Street address. They joined an existing cadre of facilities that was in alignment with their philosophy of being part of a creative production and post production community. 550 Bryant is home to a number of companies all under one roof, many of them featured here on PHS.
