Severine Reisp is an award-winning German/American filmmaker in New York City. She has always been captivated by the incredible power of film to bridge gaps and bring people together, regardless of language or culture. 


Drawing from her background as a ballet dancer, she possesses an intuitive sense of rhythm and timing, which informs her decisions on dynamic camera movement, scene cuts, dialogue pacing, and actor cues. 


During her time as a Creative Producer and Director at Christie's, the world's leading auction house, Reisp had the opportunity to direct spots for major brands in the luxury space, such as Nike, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Rolex, and for individuals like Richard Gere and Diane von Fuerstenberg, earning her three Telly awards, and showcasing her versatility in crafting compelling narratives across diverse media platforms. 


Reisp has a proven track record of innovating within the luxury space, bringing stories to life in a way that not only showcases the glamor and sophistication of high-end brands but also adds depth and emotion to their narratives. By no means confined to a genre; she likes to bring aesthetic precision and mesmerizing visuals to each project. 


Her short films have received numerous awards at national and international Film Festivals. In her latest project, "Deceive," a short film featuring Dandara Veiga (former principal with Ballet Hispanico), Marty Lawson (Smash, The Blacklist, currently in Broadway's Chicago) and shot by Emmy-Winning DP Wolfgang Held, A.S.C., she explores the journey of an abuse survivor, using dance as a powerful medium for healing and liberation. “Deceive” won several awards, including Best Cinematography at the Paris Arts and Movie Awards and the Audience Choice Award at the Yonkers Film Festival.
