Rooftop scores BARÇA doc !
Rooftop Content Group brings together several distribution companies, technical video eco-systems, production companies and their professionals. Rooftop combines distribution and content aggregation with production, ensuring optimal control over our content. Ideally, we like to get involved as early as possible in a Television or Film production, from development to financing, so we can profit to the fullest from the broad range of expertise within our international umbrella. A team of experts cover a wide range of production and facility skills, see our "partners" section for more detail on each one. With a proven knowledge of sales and box-office potentials, Rooftop Content Group also specializes in worldwide distribution of both factual and fiction content, as well as TV-formats. We bundle knowledge, facilities and content, in order to successfully answer to a fast changing industry.

Blooming media represents a new wave of independent production companies reinventing the traditional way of producing TV formats and series. Blooming is focused on the production of clever and heart-felt "fiction" content designed for sharing across multiple platforms to reach the younger demographics. We bring stories to life for a blooming feature. The local and international version of our latest production “the Ludwigs” for Nickelodeon will be aired in the Netherlands and the USA.
But, Blooming Media does not only focus on the younger demographics. Our team has years of experience in feature films and TV series, something we aim to exploit to the fullest in our new cooperation with Rooftop Content Group and their Intellectual Properties.
We put an emphasis on arts and society. Our work is guided by the interaction between cultural and socio-political developments and covers a wide topical range: from the popular in classical music to the classics of pop culture. We produce serials and equally carefully crafted individual programs in the field of factual entertainment, magazine, documentary, documentary drama and (live) shows. From its foundation in 2008 on Signed Media is responsible for producing ARTE’s pop culture magazine “Tracks” (which was awarded the French television prize “7 d’or”).

Our spectrum reaches from pop legends (“Life and Death of Sam Cooke”, 2016) or b-boy events (“The International Battle of the Year”, 2011-2015) up to Ballet (“Ballet Jeunesse”, 2017) and classical music (“Eras of Music History”, 2016 / “The Secret of The Violin”, 2013 / “Open Opera”, 2012).
