Rita

Bowie

 I was born in Paris, France. My parents immigrated from the Republic Democratic of Congo in the 80's. Growing up fashion, design, and art played a huge part in my life. I speak 4 languages and love traveling which allowed me to broaden my mind and assimilate better into different cultures. After high school, I moved to London and earned a degree in International Business. I previously worked in NY and Chicago as a model, stylist,  and seamtress in the fashion industry. I am currently a majority owner of Bowie Productions and work as a producer.

 

Skills: Location Scout, Casting Director, Producer, Model, 2nd shooter, Wardrobe and make-up Stylist.

Matthew and Rita put together a wonderful 2 minute video for our farm on short notice. They were professional, communicated the timeline clearly, and executed the project quickly, efficiently, and within a tight time frame. The whole process went very smoothly and we are delighted with the quality of the video they shot.

I worked under Matthew and Rita, and had one of the best shoot days I've had in awhile. They were friendly, professional, and best of all, well-prepared. I would happily work with them again, and encourage anyone to do the same.

Matthew and Rita are professional filmmakers. They are very responsive and responsible when communicating. They really well-thought through every details in pre-production and execute them through the production. I had a great experience working with them and would definitely looking forward to working with them again soon!

Bowie Productions is out-of-this-world fabulous in quality, preparation, follow-through and creativity. As a professional choreographer and seasoned performer in the arts, I’ve come across a wide spectrum of film production experiences (both good and bad). Matthew & Bowie Productions were a dream to work with! We collaborated for a music video and to this day, it was one of my most favorite projects in both the process and result! Matthew is a blast to work with on set — great direction, passionate vision, thorough communication, and organization. His attention to detail pre & post production creates products that you’ll be proud of and happy to share for years to come! I can’t wait for our next chance to work together!
