Riverine Productions is run by Steffi Renique and Bernadett Swann and is based central London.
Of all the possible places to meet a future business partner, we met in a stage combat class. While swinging swords and throwing choreographed punches at each other, we decided to join our forces and collaborate on creative projects in the near future.
In early 2020 we created 'Deadpan Sketches', a youtube channel comprising of comedic sketches, short scenes and music videos written, produced and performed entirely by the two of us. Due to multiple lockdowns in the UK, 'Deadpan' came to an end at the end of the year. However, the work we had created had drawn the interest of established creatives in London, and we began accumulating our first clients in the new year.
As our client repertoire grew in 2021, we developed 'Riverine Productions' to offer a number of package- and bespoke services catering to a variety of clients, from individual artists to small companies. We are proud to combine our creative and business experience to form a unique team.
