Biography

Dominik Rausch, born and raised in Stuttgart, Germany, began to write and produce short films in 1999. After starting out as a documentary filmmaker, he discovered that it is narrative and commercial filmmaking, where his true strengths are. After reading and learning about the great spirit of American filmmaking, Rausch, then 20, decided to move to Los Angeles in 2007 to acquire his Bachelor of Art in Film and TV Producing at Columbia College Hollywood. He began to work in the industry, eager to learn and know everything about successful producing.

In 2008, his internship as assistant to the producers of the critically acclaimed indie feature April Showers lead to many more assistant directing jobs on film, TV, and commercial sets, including Comedy Central. Taking on all positions of assistant directing, Rausch refined his knowledge about film and TV production and decided to set his main focus on becoming a producer. This is where all his passions come together: art, people, and communication.

Dominik met actress/writer Illeana Douglas during the filming of April Showers, where they formed a friendship and since worked together on the first season of her innovative and successful web series Easy to Assemble. Coordinating production and relations with IKEA, he came on as a producer to season 2.
