Rockfish Productions began eight years ago, when Dan Hornberger produced Rink Rats, a video chronicle of the Western Berks Street Hockey Rink. With access to one camera, a few lights, and a microphone, Dan traveled all over Berks County, interviewing players, managers, and referees, all of whom fondly remembered their days at the rink.
In 2012, Dan and Jim Del Conte created a short documentary
on a pretzel bakery in south Reading. The film was entitled
Twists & Turns: A Promise Kept in a Struggling City.
They went on to produce STANDARDIZED, an exposé of the testing industry that plagues public education. That film gained a great deal of exposure, from articles in The New York Times and
The Atlantic to a spot on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
The latest film from Rockfish is a full-length documentary on the history and collecting world of Hot Wheels. Check out Redlines to Treasure Hunts, which is now available on iTunes and Amazon Prime.
