Robson Orr, a veteran of ABC News and Paramount Pictures, develops, produces and finances features, TV programmes and documentaries through Los Angeles- and London-based Robson Entertainment.
Robson said the company's new slate of projects was partially inspired by blind educator Sabriye Tenberken, one of Blindsight's subjects. 'As a result of seeing Sabriye's empowering message we're inspiring to find other stories like that, about incredible people doing real life-changing work in the world,' she said.
Robson said she wants to 'focus on people who don't have a voice, or if they do have a voice that's not being heard, to pump up the volume.'
Robson Entertainment is also working on Fountain of Youth, about a one man's motorcycle journey around the world to meet the oldest living people on the planet. The subjects include a 114-year-old Japanese woman. 'It's about supercentarians and their incredible stories and perspective on life.'
Next up for Blindsight director Walker will be her fictional feature story about Amish teenagers during the rite of passage known as Rumspringa. Walker has said the film will be much different than her award-winning 2002 documentary about the same subject, Devil's Playground.
