Robert Rodriguez’s Red 11 & Film School docuseries lands at Tubi
Deadline is reporting that Robert Rodriguez’s sci-fi thriller Red 11 and his The Robert Rodriguez Film School docuseries has landed at Tubi after the platform acquired exclusive streaming rights to the projects.
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Tubi to deliver Red 11 and its accompanying Film School docuseries free of charge and easily accessible to all audiences,” said Rodriguez. “I made both Red 11 and the Film School series to celebrate the 25th anniversary of El Mariachi, and this project shows truly actionable methods using my no crew, micro-budget filmmaking style that will inspire others to make their own films and have their voices be heard. These are both dream projects of mine, an entertaining culmination of ideas and ruminations on the creative process that also highlight the heightened sense of spirituality that comes from dancing with creativity when there is an absence of the usual financial resources. In other words, ‘low budget fun.’”
Based on Rodriguez’s experiences in a medical research facility to finance his first feature El Mariachi, Red 11 is set in the dark, twisted world of legal drug research. College kids turn lab rats to make quick money. The movie’s protagonist Rob (who is assigned the color and number Red 11), is trying to buy his way out of a huge debt to the tune of $7K. But things get surreal when he’s not sure if the hospital is really trying to kill him, or if it’s side effects from the experimental drugs.
The horror is expected to begin streaming on Tubi in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico this summer.
The Robert Rodriguez Film School docuseries will serve as a companion piece to Red 11. The project will explain the director’s guerrilla filmmaking process while speaking to filmmakers and entrepreneurs alike on overcoming the perceived limitations of time, budget, and other variables.
