The Pre-Production meeting to create Ryan Reichenfeld.

Ryan Reichenfeld is a writer + director, based in Los Angeles. 


Ryan Reichenfeld left home at 15 to become a professional skateboarder - a bold move that’s indicative of his tone as a director. His innate understanding of action, movement, and camera choreography is at the heart of his approach.

Ryan cut his teeth as an Offline Editor and VFX Artist+Supervisor, collaborating directly with filmmakers like Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, The Daniels, Hiro Murai, David Gelb, Nabil, Warren Fu, and Alma Har'el.

He rose as a director in the music video world, writing and directing music videos for Justin Timberlake, Imagine Dragons, Steve Martin (yes the comedian), Pusha-T, Sam Hunt, Steve Aoki, Lil Jon, and Grammy-winning artist RAC amongst others.

In the advertising space, he's become known for combining creative camera moves/technical VFX processes alongside authentic narratives. His straightforward way of empathizing with characters enables him to create films that celebrate everyday human stories on a cinematic scale.

His award winning short docs for SEAN and SKATEBOARDING IN OAKLAND, blur the lines between traditional non-fiction docs and stylized scripted narratives - winning awards at D&AD, Vimeo Staff Picks, Kinsale Sharks, and a feature development deal at a major streamer. Other notable non-scripted projects include directing the entire first season of 5 MINUTES FROM HOME, the first show that launched Steph Curry's production company - Unanimous Media.

Ryan continues to create memorable work in the advertising space, and is currently writing/developing scripted projects for television and feature film.

As the son of an Indonesian immigrant, Ryan was the first of his father's family to be born in the USA and the first of anyone in his family to graduate college.
