Director Statement

« I believe that dance can sometimes say more than words concerning emotions and political topics and that a narrative dance film can merge new choreography, music and current social issues.
Encouraging women is also important to me and as a director I felt empowered to let my own visions come to life.
Before enrolling in college I was a professional ballet dancer with State Street Ballet and Joffrey Ballet in New York. Hence, I see directing as choreography on the screen.
« 

Director Biography – Severine Reisp

Severine Reisp was born in Bielefeld, Germany in 1994. At the age of 16 she received a scholarship to attend a boarding school in England where she was able to combine her academic studies with a high level of dance training. She speaks German, English and French fluently. During her teenage years she received scholarships to attend ballet summer intensives at Joffrey Ballet School, Rosella Hightower in Cannes, Northern Ballet School in the UK, Festival Ballet in Santa Barbara, California and Scuola Danza Hamlyn in Florence. After graduating from secondary school in England with honours in five A-levels, she was accepted at Warwick Business School in the UK but she decided to continue with dancing first and deferred her place to college. She was invited to become a trainee with Joffrey Ballet School in New York and later with State Street Ballet in Santa Barbara, California. To further combine her academic interests with dance, she eventually decided to enrol at Sarah Lawrence College at which she received the presidential scholarship. She moved back to New York and at Sarah Lawrence, she has been able to combine her interests in theatre, film and dance. She was able to make her own visions come to life and to collaborate with many talented dancers, filmmakers, actors , composers and cinematographers in New York.

Crowdfunding et mécénat participatif : les clés d’une collecte réussie

Le crowdfunding est aujourd’hui une ressource de financement de plus en plus importante pour les projets audiovisuels.

Cependant, réussir une collecte auprès de son réseau nécessite de bien préparer sa démarche en se posant les bonnes questions : Quand se lancer ? Quel montant demander ? Quelle stratégie de communication adopter ? Quelles contreparties proposer ?

L’équipe de touscoprod by proarti  répondra à ces questions et présentera les modalités du dispositif de mécénat participatif, mécanisme permettant aux donateurs de bénéficier de réductions fiscales qui a pour effet de doubler le montant moyen des dons sur les collectes.

 

/ proarti en quelques mots

En juin 2013, le fonds de dotation proarti a lancé avec 5 partenaires artistiques la plateforme proarti.fr, première plateforme de mécénat participatif dédiée à la création artistique et de la découverte culturelle.
Ce projet à la croisée de l’innovation sociale et de la création artistique a été soutenu pour son lancement par le Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication dans le cadre de l’appel à projets 2012 services numériques culturels innovants.
Acteur reconnu de la finance participative, proarti.fr se distingue aujourd’hui par sa forme juridique : un fonds de dotation autorisé à recourir à la générosité du public créé en 2009, partenaire d’une SAS (proarti.2) qui lui développe des services innovants. De ce fait, proarti allie à la fois :

√ une démarche de start up, pour le côté web,
√ un engagement dans le champ de l’économie sociale et solidaire, le fonds de dotation qui opère la plateforme web étant un acteur d’intérêt général autorisé à recourir à la générosité du public
√ une approche résolument professionnelle grâce à la qualité de son expertise dans le champ culturel et tout particulièrement sur le spectacle vivant.
