Fire In The Hole Productions is an independent film and television production company based in the South East of England. We are passionate about filmmaking and enjoy bringing the pages of history to life.  Fire In The Hole Productions was founded by Rick Roberts in 1997. Rick started making and directing short films in 1992 as a hobby as he fell in love with cinema at an early age. As Rick's experience grew, he was able to get involved with larger scale projects which enabled him to begin investing in his own independent films such as See It Through, From This Day, Dark Country and Seventh Soldier. Rick has experience in writing, producing and providing expert military costume advice but his main passion will always be for his role as a director.

In 2012, actor/writer Tim Seyfert joined Fire in the Hole to assist with the development of projects, and has since worked closely with Rick as both a writer and producer, co-producing Dark Country and Seventh Soldier as well as writing the upcoming heist film Balloon Animals (currently in pre-production).

In 2018, actress/filmmaker Cheryl Neve teamed up with Fire in The Hole to direct her first film, the cold war thriller, Cheating Charlie. She has since joined the company to assist with the development of future projects.

Fuelled by a childhood love for movies and a keen interest in both British and American history, Fire In The Hole Productions always brings a professional and multifaceted skill set to every project. Additionally, Fire In The Hole Productions is a costume and prop supplier with a large collection of authentic period costumes, props and set pieces available for hire. With a vast knowledge of military and western history, the company also offers technical advice on war-themed, historical and western-based projects, ensuring that maximum historical accuracy and authenticity are met in every aspect of production. 

Fire In The Hole Productions has worked in a variety of roles to help develop projects for HBO, BBC, CBS as well as several of its own independent features and film shorts. Many of these independent films have showcased at festivals all over the world and have been broadcast on television networks such as SKY.  At Fire In The Hole Productions, we pride ourselves on creating historically accurate and entertaining productions. We are always on the lookout for new talent to work with and creative projects to take on.
