By thelaegotist / / Ruffian has marked its turf stateside, opening doors on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Founder/EP Robert Herman arrives with extensive production experience, running global house Stink as Managing Director/COO for 16 successful years, an experience gracing him with the confidence and tenacity required to build Ruffian his own way – alongside the best people, delivering high-level craftsmanship while never holding back on his passion. “We are Ruffian because we’re honest about who we are,” Herman says. “We tell it like it is. Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty to get the job done, and a Ruffian won’t shy away from tough decisions or hard work. We want people to know that we’re serious about film, but a true Ruffian does it with charm, humor and a touch of style.” Ruffian’s network of global partners offers clients the opportunity to shoot in unique locations with influences far outside their ordinary frame of reference. The company’s resource base will also extend further than others by inviting designers, writers and photographers into the creative process of storytelling. “Game-changing ideas can surface anytime during production and we will capitalize on those moments so that nothing passes us by,” Herman adds.
