Contagious came of age amidst the ''new normal'', in which production companies are often called upon for creative and strategic collaboration. As such, our roster is comprised of storytellers with extensive long-form experience who are just as comfortable contributing on the page as they are behind the lens. Ours is an era of tighter budgets but unchanged expectations. But a job worth doing shouldn't be sidelined by budget or resources and, frankly, we thrive on the kind of MacGyver-like problem solving. If it's fun, we're interested. Across all formats, Contagious and its filmmakers tell stories that rebel as much as they entertain. We don't want to die of the fear. We want to cure ourselves of it. And that desire for a cure...is Contagious.
ContagiousLA is a WBEC certified Woman-Owned and NMSDC certified Minority-Owned company.
