Get to know us.

Red Tide Pictures is a digital cinema production house based in Carpinteria, California.

How it all started.

We began as friends filming the things we do… Travel, snowboarding, motocross, surfing, skateboarding: we documented wherever our vision took us. In 2009 we found ourselves with a growing customer base and were officially founded by Tyler Wales and Wiley Watson. Since then we have continued to expand, taking on new and bigger projects, while adding creative staff on both coasts.
At the heart of all our projects lies the search for adventure, the dedication to get “the shot”, and the need to tell a great story.

Expert cinematographer and lifelong adventurer, Wiley spends most of his hours in the field as director. When in the office he can be found working away in the editing bay. He supplements this with drinking lattes and making deals.
