About My Business The REEL Project (TRP) is dedicated to connecting people and transforming lives through art, technology, information and opportunity. Our first mandate is to produce humanitarian films and media projects for various populations in need in post-conflict areas of the developing world. We work towards creating culturally relevant films that not only provide information, but that are also engaging works of art that promote global awareness. In addition to our use of media for humanitarian purposes, we work to support the creative ideas, educational initiatives, and business aspirations of local people in the communities where we film. Our second mandate is thus to assist such communities through the provision of various loans and grants, and through the facilitation of international partnerships, connections, and opportunities that promote local development.
