About Rommana

A couple of art students began their collaboration in 2013. Rommana Art Studio was founded by the same students in 2015. Our main goal was producing low budget short films and documentaries. In 2019 we established ourselves as an innovative, vibrant and an international production company producing award winning short films, documentaries and branded content as well as providing post-production services both in sound and image.
