What We Do

EVERY HILL FILMS is a little company with a huge passion for the product: truly exceptional non-fiction specials, series and factual-based dramas.

In 2013 Nicole Rittenmeyer launched Every Hill Films. Every Hill’s first special, OJ: Trial of the Century was produced exclusively for Investigation Discovery’s ID FILMS strand and premiered June 12, 2014 to critical acclaim. The company’s growing body of work includes the six-hour special EAT: The Story of Food with National Geographic Television for National Geographic Channel, and another six-hour miniseries special for H2 premiering in 2015.

At Every Hill Films, commitment to quality is everything. Which is why critics have described our work as “innovative,” “groundbreaking” and “the best you will see on this subject” — because every project is our very best work.

So yes, we’ll die on that hill. Because we love what we do.

“A remarkable documentary… 9/11: The Days After is an amazingly vivid portrait of what the city was like: in shock, in mourning, in fear, in sadness, in anger, in despair, in hope…. Director-producers Seth Skundrick and Nicole Rittenmeyer have added immeasurably to the chronicle of this period of history.”
