I am one of the Berliners, who were actually born in Berlin. I grew up on both sides of the “iron curtain”, studied design and photography in Berlin, post-graduated in film directing at the KHM in Cologne and became a freelance writer and director.
So far I created and shot more than 100 music videos for German acts like OLLI SCHULZ, CLUESO, LENA, 5 STERNE DELUXE and the BEATSTEAKS as well as international bands and musicians like MUSE, HEATHER NOVA, LIONEL RICHIE and many others.
As a commercial director I have been directing campaigns for brands like MC DONALDS, COCA COLA, VODAFONE, BUNDESLIGA, MERCEDES BENZ and TELECOM to name a few. My directional work brought me onto the shortlist of the Cannes Advertising Festival (young talent), as well as further nominations and awards, such as “Die Klappe”, the “Clio Award” in New York and the EFFIE award in 2013.
I shot several short films – one of them is the film “Darling Princess Life”, who has been awarded as best film on the independet short film festival CONTRAVISION, Berlin. I also directed the web series “Deer Lucy” that you can watch in full length on this website.
Besides that, I teamed up with Peter Domsch and formed the filmmakers-collective PETER&derWOLF. Among several ad campaigns and music videos we finished 2 full-length music- and band-documentaries – for CASPER and the BEATSTEAKS. We are currently busy to produce and direct a 90-minute documentary for the German band KRAFTKLUB that will be released in fall 2015.
