1) What was your first professionally directed work and when was it

Somfy – Better Safe than worry. 02/2017

2) How did you get into directing?

I was raised in the countryside. A place where every day is groundhog day. I always wanted to make things different and unseen. On my way to peculiar i somehow ended up in filmmaking.

3) What is your most recent project?

Actually there are two projects. A very visual and metaphorical film for Porsche. And a very political project for an online book store named Thalia. Both very different.

4) What is the best part of being a director?

The best thing is that rare and magical moment in which what happens in front of the camera becomes a new reality.

5) What is the worst part of being a director?

The worst thing is when you watch the same moment in the edit and you realize it´s not….

6) What is your current career focus: commercials and branded content, TV movies? Do you plan to specialize in a particular genre–comedy, drama, visual effects, etc.?

My mid term career focus is commercials and branded content. For the long run I strive for telling all kinds of stories over various different formats. I don´t care about genre or style or formats at all. Ideas and stories are what it´s about.

10) Tell us about your background (i.e., where did you grow up? Past jobs?)

Born and raised on the countryside of southern Germany. I write and direct peculiar films about life, the universe and everything else.
