Dustin Rikert - Director
Dustin Rikert currently has several projects in development. Some of the clients and companies he has worked with include Lionsgate, Showtime, Sci-Fi Channel, Silverline Ent., The Rich Dad Company, The Trump Organization, Fox, MTV and ABC just to name a few.
After moving west to attend USC's film school, he was voted one of the University's "Outstanding Seniors" in 1997.
Rikert drew on the tragic loss of his son as a starting point to get his first film made. The film became the cult thriller "Essence of Echoes," shot on video for a mere $110,000 during the pre-HD era. With Essence as a calling card, Rikert quickly became known as a producer who could deliver extremely high quality projects on shoestring budgets. Rikert became so in demand, he formed Shoestring Post Productions, a company dedicated to helping filmmakers achieve their dreams and visions on any budgetary level. He has completed the soon to be released and highly anticipated sequel to the cult classic Easy Rider entitled EASY RIDER: THE RIDE BACK. Rikert is currently in development on a Western entitled THE LAST RIDE. To learn more about Dustin Rikert check out his work at IMDB.com.
