Origin of Rusty Halo
As a child, Rebeka Herron was constantly pushing boundaries (and getting into trouble). Her Granny mused she had a “Rusty Halo” – no matter what mischief she created, she always managed to emerge an "innocent" angel. Today, Rusty Halo Productions continues to challenge limits by fostering high concept, misfit stories featuring unique characters that challenge our views of the world.
