The best stories require you to dive deep.

Our Story

Deep Sea Pictures was sparked from a love of storytelling by Deborah Lee Smith and Alyssa Roehrenbeck, two powerhouse producers and actresses who have created numerous award winning films, commercials, and multimedia projects individually before uniting in 2017.  We operate up and down the west coast with bases in Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles, California.

We are about seeing the world from a deeper perspective.

Our method is different from other agencies. We look for the most dynamic stories, then use a multi-platform approach that resonates with audiences wherever they are – even if that’s at the bottom of the Pacific. 😉

Ladies of Deep Sea

  • Alyssa Roehrenbeck
    Alyssa RoehrenbeckProducer

    Alyssa is a get-shit-done type person with a fun loving, goofy side. She believes strongly in working hard and playing hard – at the same time.

    As an Actress and Producer, she began at a young age by adapting and organizing neighborhood plays based on the popular American Girls collection (yes, really). She and her pals rehearsed, constructed hodge-podge costumes and then charged parents for admission and popcorn.

    After graduating from studies in Theater and Business, she’s developed her skills as not only a writer and actress, but as a smart and fearless Producer. She has Produced feature films like Seaside (starring Ariana DeBose from Broadway’s A Bronx Tale & Hamilton), documentary work for Cartoon Network, Misfits (starring Paige McKenzie) for Disney’s Free Period, and loads of commercials, industrials and viral content.

  • Deborah Lee Smith

    Deborah is an actress and producer whose love of performing, storytelling, and new experiences has led to filming projects around the world. Originally from LA, she studied Theater and English Lit at UC Berkeley before moving to Australia to pursue her master’s degree in Film Production.

    She started acting again in the Australian film industry before returning to LA and diving head first into acting and discovered a love of producing. Currently, she has
    three features in various stages of production, as well as other projects in development that illustrate her breadth and diverse talents in the industry.

    In her spare time, she loves baking banana bread, exploring new places, and creating weekly videos about badass women in the past and sharing their stories with the world!
