Reality Distortion Field and The Embassy Join Forces

Reality Distortion Field and The Embassy Join Forces

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) and The Embassy have formed an alliance to provide more genre content for television and film to audiences worldwide. The two companies have collaborated on the critically-acclaimed WARRIOR NUN and FAKES previously. Together RDF and The Embassy will offer pre-production, production and VFX services to the global features and episodic market. 

“The Embassy has been an essential creative partner in building the world of WARRIOR NUN for two seasons, from concept design to building a sustainable approach to VFX that allows us to punch above our weight,” said Simon Barry, creator/showrunner WARRIOR NUN and co-founder of RDF. “Winston and his team are storytellers in every sense and as a Showrunner and a Director, that elevates everything we work on together. I’m confident they will be on this creative journey with RDF for a long, long time.” 

RDF was founded in 2016 by showrunner/creator Simon Barry and producer Stephen Hegyes. Production at RDF is headed by Zack Tucker Gangnes with Bhavika Mantri spearheading development. Since its launch, RDF has seen exponential growth with the releases of FAKES in partnership with CBC Gem and Netflix and the Netflix Original series WARRIOR NUN. 

“Finding solutions for filmmakers through our creative and technical expertise to produce high-quality original content has always been the driving force of RDF,” said Stephen Hegyes, co-founder and president of Reality Distortion Field. “The Embassy and RDF share this same passion and we look forward to developing a unique slate of glossy productions under our new collaboration.” 

"Over The Embassy’s 20 years in creating world-class VFX, we have worked with some of the biggest showrunners and directors in the world," said Winston Helgason, president of The Embassy. "Working with Simon Barry and RDF, over the past three years, has been our best experience ever. I am very proud of the work we have accomplished together. No one can put more value on screen per dollar than we do as a team." 

The new collaboration will see RDF and The Embassy finalising and producing season two of WARRIOR NUN and full-length feature films over the next quarter. Season two of WARRIOR NUN is slated for release this fall.
