Monday, May 8, 2017 -- Production company Little Minx is excited to announce the addition of director RC Cone to their roster of visionary filmmakers. In addition to directing, RC is also a photographer and drone operator.
RC came to the attention of Little Minx when they saw his short film 'The Accord’. The film is a thrill-seeking journey about surfers in Iceland who brave the North Atlantic wind - personified in the film as a temperamental drunk - to find good waves. Their relentless battle against the elements is rewarded when the wind cooperates and they find their perfect waves, captured by epic drone footage shot by RC himself. After premiering at the Telluride Mountain Film Festival, 'The Accord’ won awards at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, the Kendal Mountain Film Festival, Santa Cruz Surf Film Fest, and the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival, to name a few.
“We were looking for a director who had drone experience with a documentary style when I saw ‘The Accord’,” says Jennette MacLachlan, EP at Little Minx. “The drone footage coupled with RC’s slightly comedic storytelling was unique and everyone in the room was captivated – I reached out to him the moment the credits began to roll.”
RC Cone moved from the flatlands to big sky country when he was 18. Graduating from the University of Montana with a degree in Environmental Studies profoundly shaped his worldview, and a concentration in Photojournalism honed his storytelling aesthetic. Working with companies such as Patagonia, Redington and Howler Bros. on a collection of adventure documentaries cemented RC’s love for outdoor cinema and the connection it creates between the audience and the natural world.
"I'm excited to join the Little Minx family," says Cone. "Being part of a creative community that supports you as an artist is such an honor."
“I was really impressed with ‘The Accord’. It is intelligent, funny and breathtaking – a rare combination,” says Rhea Scott, president of Little Minx. “Plus, he lives in the States which is convenient for US agencies.”
At Little Minx, RC will bring his signature documentary style and drone experience to the branded content and commercial markets.
