ABOUT

H. Hunt Burdick – Executive Producer/Partner

 

Hunt graduated with a BFA from the UCLA Department of Theatre, Film and Television. Since then he has been fortunate enough to make his living in the Entertainment field. Hunt started out as a mediocre actor who quickly realized that it was easier to find somewhat more steady work on the Production end of the business.

In the early 1990s, after working on numerous projects for various studios including: Tri-Star Pictures, Orion Pictures, Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, and Showtime, Hunt happily fell into the one of the greatest jobs in the world when he became a Production Manager and Producer for the Sony Pictures High Definition Center, at Sony Studios in Culver City. The facility was tasked to reach out to the Hollywood Film community and present them with the potential of shooting their major productions on Sony’s digital High Definition. Hunt acted as the SPHDC Producer on two features, Rainbow, and, Habitat, and one NBC mini-series, WWII: When Lions Roared.

Mr. Burdick, is one of the founders of TopGallant, Productions, an independent production company located in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has recently completed post-production on, The White Bull, a film he both wrote and directed.
