Kode Red: the creative studio

Rylee Ebsen

One of the most remarkable young creators to emerge in recent years, director Rylee Jean Ebsen is rapidly earning critical acclaim for pioneering mobile storytelling. Her work has generated 40+ million views on YouTube and trillions of views on Snapchat.

Rylee understands digital better than anyone because she started at Snapchat, as the Director of Creative Media, when there were less than a dozen staff. During her 7 years at Snap, she directed every single video for B2B and B2C and managed the creative marketing team. Alongside TVCs, and content she also created the very first narrative content on Snapchat, directing several shows including “Literally Can’t Even” starring Sasha Spielberg and Emily Goldwyn. Ebsen’s team guided the creative evolution of Snapchat from a startup to multibillion-dollar public company.

Rylee has only gained momentum in her next chapter, working as a live action commercial director. Some of her recent clients include Disney and Facebook. Ebsen also advises startups and is currently helping cutting-edge companies at the intersection of branding, technology, strategy and storytelling to realize the future of marketing and entertainment. Her focus in all of these areas has landed her on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for 2020.

As a producer of new media, including Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, wearables, 360-video, and live-streaming, Rylee is eager to share her knowledge. She’s been asked to speak at companies, conferences, and schools all over the world. In August 2019, Rylee created an augmented reality effect for Taylor Swift’s new album 'Lover.’ It went live in August across Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat and was used by millions of people.

As a woman in tech and in film, Rylee is passionate about supporting and mentoring the next generation of women in film and tech.
