About Us

R&B Productions was formed in 2012 by Rod Putnam and Brian Wellman.  In 2010, Brian went to France as part of a study abroad trip.  He was amazed at the admiration the French had for their liberators.  When he returned, he told Rod about it.  Rod thought it was the basis of a great documentary and Hidden Admiration was born.  Currently, the film is making the film festival rounds with the hope of a public distribution of the film in the fall.  R&B is currently developing ideas for their next film.  Stay tuned!
