Andi Reiss is a London and Oxford based filmmaker, producer and artist. He is an award winning independent documentary maker filmmaker director, screenwriter, cameraman, editor, colourist, storyboard artist, cartoonist and associate lecturer, with the experience to oversee a project from conception through to completion and delivery.
He is also an award winning ‘mistake maker’, which over twenty years has offered opportunity to realise that mistakes are a big part of thinking different.
In his work, often with a political aspect, he aims to incorporate a range of artistic disciplines, uniting them within a social and cultural context. His film include Cargo (2004), Homecoming (2010), Postively False – Birth of a Heresy (2011), Positive Hell (2014), Sacrificial Virgins (2017) and Endgame – Assisted Dying and UK legislation (2018).
Described as being able to strike the ethnographic balance between getting involved with his topics, whilst ensuring he keeps enough distance to guarantee his neutrality and independence, he is an experienced and creative self shooting producer/director and editor, often working with a very small team. However, he has the rare combination of storytelling, photography and people skills that, hopefully makes his work both interesting and challenging to an audience.
During his formative years, in which he built a strong foundation, he wrote/produced and directed several diversified short films and commercials.
