HIGHBROW was conceived by actor Ronald Guttman who, as a producer, is able to collaborate with talented writers, filmmakers, directors, and actors for stage, screen,

and other productions.

While our focus is on independent film and theatre, HIGHBROW is also interested in sustaining all arts as a means of artist self-expression, cultural representation, geopolitical understanding, education, enlightenment, and entertainment. With a holistic approach to producing, HIGHBROW is interested in engaging in the full cycle creative process where ideas can be fostered and developed into fully cultivated works that serve both their creators and audiences. We seek to bring an eclectic, introspective, international,

and original collection of works to fruition.
