of directors duo
Marc Ripper and
Karina Lomelin Ripper

Based in Portland, Oregon, Karina and Marc are award~winning directors collaborating on projects that merge a wide range of experience in independent film, documentary and commercial production.

Sharing an acute aesthetic, they craft visually inventive work with an eye toward design and atmosphere. They fancy magical realism, liminal spaces, a hybrid of practical and digital effects, and a touch of the macabre.


Karina has previously worked in production on shows for National Geographic WILD, The Discovery Channel, HBO Films and A&E Films; Also as a producer on the feature film Clementine (Tribeca 2019).

Marc has worked as an editor~colorist for brands and films (IFC Films, Vice, Sesame Street, Lace Crater); Also as a film poster designer (Cold Weather, This is Martin Bonner, Strong Island, Hale County This Morning This Evening).

Additionally, they have both worked on commercial campaigns for clients like Google, Facebook, Blue Apron, and Nike.


Currently, they’re both hurtling through space at roughly a thousand miles per hour, but please don’t hestitate to catch up with them ︎︎︎
