    Biog

    Andi Reiss is a media creative with twenty years of production experience. He is a multi-disciplinary artist, skilled as a self-shooting producer & director, dp, lighting cameraman, editor, colourist and photographer. He also works as a producer, writer, script doctor, illustrator, cartoonist, painter, digital artist, experimental video designer and educator. He has not yet worked as a midwife, deodorant tester, chicken sexer or wrinkle chaser, although it’s good to remain ever open-minded.

    As a self shooting producer/director and videographer he is particularly interested in more intelligent programming and thrives on both the creative and technical aspects of production. He is confident shooting on most standard industry equipment (F55, FS7, C300, Panasonic GH5, BM Ursa Mini, PMW200-300, XF305, 5D etc) to a broadcast level, and also on high grade cinematic lenses and in 4K. I’m

    As a writer, researcher and script reader he has a strong mixed methodology for extensive background research and works as a documentary consultant and fiction story editor for filmmakers who are looking to dramatically improve the quality of their projects – before, during and after shooting.

    As a producer he is experienced and versatile with a range of skills including finance development, proposal writing, production management, casting, location management, storyboarding, budgeting and scheduling.

    As an editor he has twenty years experience of working independently but collaborates well with others. He is an associate member of the BFE (Guild of British Film Editors) and has studios with Avid, Adobe Creative Suite, Da Vinci Resolve, Audition and all graphics software. He works closely with creative directors, art directors, writers, producers and filmmakers to ensure creative expectations are met, following established editing workflows, standards and project structure.

    As an educator he loves sharing his knowledge and experience with aspiring talent and works as a University Associate Lecturer and freelance course writer and tutor. He’s also on the jury at the Queens World Film Festival in New York.

    As an artist he creates storyboards and mood boards, animated graphics, posters, flyers online banners and digital art, and he professionally doodles cartoons and caricatures. He also paints and does graffiti, both on canvasses and walls; all legally of course.

    As a Trustee for the mental health charity Oxfordshire Mind he hopes to offer some help with the years of media, communications and digital production experience.

    As a team member of ScreenTalk Oxfordshire he has helped organise a number of events with award winning industry professionals.

    As a dad he’s a personal ATM by nature to the best eight year old boy in the world.

    REFERENCES

    “Andi Reiss is a filmmaker with a brave and brittle voice, appealing to something beyond the obvious.” James Christopher, ‘The Times’ (2010)

    “Andi has that unique interviewer’s ability to help me say what I really wanted to say, in ways that I could never have imagined saying it.” Charles Burns, Silhouette Secrets, (2015)

    “Andi Reiss is a polymath; a multi-talented creative filmmaker with expert knowledge in business. I have worked closely with Andi over the past 4 years, and in 2013 he and I co-produced a 90 minute documentary which won several awards at international film festivals. We have more recently made a half hour documentary which has won two film festival awards and been selected for screening by the Queens World Film Festival, New York, in March 2017. Andi is a highly skilled cameraperson and editor. He has also had extensive experience of teaching students. He is creative and artistic. He is an ideal candidate for a faculty that combines Design and Media Management. Andi Reiss’s artistic training and abilities combined with his organisational skills would make an important contribution to the production company or high education establishment. I would recommend him highly as a creative and motivated team member.”

    Joan Shenton, Director – Meditel Productions (2017)

    “I have known Andi Reiss since 2001, both as a friend and, since 2002-2004 , as a work colleague on the feature film Cargo, which Andi directed , and which was produced in 2004. We were co-sceenwriters of the film’s adapted screenplay, and I was also executive producer. Andi is a highly knowledgeable, resourceful, and hardworking filmmaker, with over 15 years’ experience in all areas of the film industry. He also has an aptitude for , and proven skills in, critical appraisal, research ,and writing. In addition, he taught for seven years , on a part-time basis, on a BA degree programme for the SAE film school in Oxford. I have no doubt that he would bring these areas of expertise, experience, commitment, and skill to making films and/or teaching, and for all these reasons I am pleased to support his application in the strongest terms.”

    Dr. Tudor Jones.

    Hon. Research Fellow in History of Political Thought, Coventry University.

    Tutor in Political History, Dept. for Continuing Education, University of Oxford. (2017)

    “I was taught by Andi Reiss for two years at SAE, Oxford, and he inspires creativity in so many areas of filmmaking; from screenwriting to cinematography, directing actors, documentary making, producing, budgeting, production management, editing, colour grading, film festivals, sales and distribution. He also has considerable knowledge of the history of film and television. I can honestly say my skills and technical knowledge at University have come on leaps and bounds under Andi’s tuition.”

    Keith Hoult, Former, SAE Student, 2015

    “You assume every lecturer to have the same views and restrictions, but Andi enabled me to get a 2:1 when I was convinced I couldn’t even pass. He is not just a great lecturer, but a no nonsense, professional filmmaker and a friend. I wish I had known him academically for longer.”

    Taylor Papworth, Former SAE Student, 2015
