Because shows don’t just make themselves, Philip Waley, Joel Baral, and Richter Hartig - with decades of studio, network, and indie experience between them - created Harbor Wall Productions to offer their considerable expertise and substantial resources to organizations preparing to head out on the treacherous seas of production. The name itself flows from their own last names. Har- (Hartig) -bor/bar (Baral) Wall (Waley). But it seemed fitting. For any production, be it TV or Feature, is an adventure unto itself, and it is within the sanctuary of the harbor wall that the planning, the outfitting, the crewing, the financing - all the groundwork that makes for a successful voyage - take place. At Harbor Wall we can lay that groundwork for any show; we can take that show out onto the perilous seas of production; and we can deliver it back to harbor where its happy buyers await.
Harbor Wall offers Production Administrative Services including entity set up, ownership, treasury management and tax filings for production entities, an IA signatory company, and a WGA signatory company; a full range of outsourced Production Finance capabilities for both TV and Features including all aspects of tax incentives, ledger set up, prep, post and VFX accounting, controllership, union/guild setup and auditing, for both domestic and international production; and Physical Production Services including budgeting, scheduling, and everything required to plan, shoot, post and deliver a finished series or feature nearly anywhere in the world.
With this solid foundation upon which to build any show, we have a Creative Development arm to nurture quality projects that appeal to us.
