Rich Ragsdale, A Composer and Director – FilmTracks Ep. 14

Andrew Alderete May 23, 2012 0

Andrew and Jessie were very pleased to have composer/director Rich Ragsdale. Co-founder of KNR Productions, Rich’s career began as a composer for film (Edmond, Eight Legged Freaks), television (King of Queens, According to Jim, Will and Grace), and video games (Aliens vs. Predator, No One Lives Forever). In 2003, Rich crossed over into the directing realm with his first award-winning short, Into Something Rich and Strange. Following the festival success of his short, Rich was tapped to direct the ultra-low budget yet highly-stylized horror film, The Curse of El Charro. After winning numerous awards for The Curse Of El Charro, including Best Production Design and Best Music & Sound: Fearless Tales Genre Festival, San Francisco, CA (2005); Best Visual Effects: International Festival of Horror/Science Fiction, Phoenix, AZ (2005) and being nominated for Best Feature at both the Fearless Tales and Eerie Horror Film Festivals, the film was acquired and released in 2005 by Paramount and Showtime. Since his feature debut, Rich continues to compose for feature film and direct highly-acclaimed short films and music videos, all of which continue to build him a solid base of accolades and admirers. Lending his sound design, editorial and production skills to KNR’s first feature, Phantom Love, Rich has also solidified his role as a well-rounded producer.
