Reel Dreams produces award-winning narrative features, documentaries, and international advertisements. Film Director Topher Straus established Reel Dreams in 1994 while attending film school at Syracuse University. Reel Dreams has over 20 years of experience producing high quality work. We are excited to release Happy Is Life this year and to start production on our comedic mockumentary 4:20.
Topher is blessed with a creative vigor that is infectious. Yet it is more than that, as Topher has an infectious hope to strive creatively and enjoy the process of the journey. His path is wide open.

I had the pleasure of producing “The Attackmen” for Topher. First, I must say that there are few directors that I have had as much fun working with as Topher. He possesses the rare ability to make sure that everyone has fun everyday, no matter how strenuous production can seem. Creative & collaborative, yet at the same time clear and direct with his vision. From the script, through casting, production and every inch of post, Topher was on top of every detail, ensuring the highest quality work was put forth by all.

Topher is genius when it comes to anything creative. He has a keen understanding of how to sell a product and work directly with a client. It was a pleasure to work with him and I enjoyed his positive attitude.

I would like to pass on our thanks to Reel Dreams for producing two great TV ads for a reasonable cost. They were well organized and easy to work with. The planning and filming went without a hitch and the team kept to the tight time frame.
