DAHUD PROD, created in 2021 by director Vanessa Le Reste, strives to reinforce the role of show runner
DAHUD PROD develops and co-produces original series, from Brittany as well as internationally.
DAHUD PROD is based in the Santa Cruz of Brittany : Douarnenez, known also by its initials – DZ.
This fiefdom of the Penn Sardin, a blue collar village with a notable history of feminism, has reinvented itself, and is now a great breeding ground for creation, where many artists reside, including adherents of the counter-culture and surfing.
The Pôle Audiovisuel de Cornouailles is based in Douarnenez and serves as a creative hub for over a hundred creative professionals.
DAHUD PROD is a part of a production process that is both local and international. Proud of her Breton culture and her femininity, as the name indicates, DAHUD PROD hopes to bring attention to the female gaze, while respecting the concept of equity, a critical pillar of the 50/50 collective.
DAHUD PROD also has a division linked to the organization of activities in the world of board sports.
