ARRIGO REUSS. The Berlin based filmmaker crafts powerful stories and visual portraits. His interest of people brings a human touch to all of his work. His work feels unrehearsed, capturing spontaneous moments infused with humour, authenticity, and emotion. It all started while living in London as Arrigo was inspired by the characters and nitty-gritty bits of the city and decided to write his first screenplay. After moving across the pond, his professional film journey began in the creatively diverse petri dish of Berlin and he has since been directing music videos, commercials, and short films for an international clientele; working with names such as Sony, Universal, Deutsche Bahn, Bumble, and BBDO. Arrigo sees everything; he aims to depict the essence of the person or object he is filming. Perhaps that is why his work feels so alive. He also has a penchant for shooting comedies. Self-aware, charming films that can only make audiences crack a smile.
Fun fact: To get more of a 360° view of directing, Arrigo took up acting. What started as a lesson turned into a lucrative side gig. He will still occasionally act if the role is interesting!
