WE ARE PROUD
AtuA Productions has a long standing reputation for covering subjects that impact society. From documentaries helping free innocent people from prison to socially conscious films attacking the bullying epidemic in today's school sytem, WE ARE PROUD to help make this world a better place for all of us -- one story at a time.
I see the tragic and devastating news stories on social media and news programs every single day. I finally decided enough is enough. Sometimes we all feel overwhelmed by the task of protecting our children. I want this film to help with that. If we all work together to get this film done, it may even save the life of someone you know.
Scott Poggensee is the Director and Sr. Producer for AtuA Productions. Mr. Poggensee first became interested in film making after hearing about an inmate in the Texas prison system that was thought to be innocent. Through his investigation, he was able to find information that proved the man's innocence. The documentary that followed has gained international attention and helped with the man's case. Since then, Mr. Poggensee has also dipped his toe into the pond of socially conscious films, including the current project "Warning Signs" -- the story of a high school freshman being bullied to the point of committing suicide. Mr. Poggensee hopes to help change the stigma of depression and suicide among our youth. He plans to make more films in the future to not only comment on different problems in society, but also how to talk about and fix them. Mr. Poggensee currently resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex in Texas. He has one awesome dog named Coco and enjoys going to movies and flying his drone in his spare time.
