After traveling the world on a bicycle, our Creative Director has studied at HFF Konrad Wolf in Babelsberg. His artistic roots are alike in narrative film (e.g. the successful arthouse feature film ZEIT DER FISCHE was realized by him) as well as in internationally successful experimental work (Förderpreis dt. Film in Hof, Oberhausen, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Houston).
In addition to his work on two new feature films, he directed hundreds of scenes, music clips and short films as commissioned work. This created a virtuosity in dealing with a wide variety of genres and narrative possibilities within the short form.
