Andreas was born in Munich. Moved by his enthusiasm for drawing, painting, designing, contemporary art, he opened at the age of 22 his own film production company where he spent the next 17 years working as a director and producer. He soon showed his talent for comedy and storytelling. With the years he developed a unique visual style and after working in important campaigns, he sold his company to concentrate on his work as a director.
After directing more than 500 commercials and winning more than 65 awards at all major international festivals including Cannes, Clio, ADC, New York, etc., Andreas’ work is characterised by his strong visual storytelling, creating unique atmospheres and capturing astonishing performances.
Humour with sharp timing is a strong side of him, being skilled with cars, beauty and food as well.
He also couples his quite unique, often graphic/geometric/architectural shots with a vast experience in post post-production to create stunning results.
But his favourite is and has always been simply, working with people.
In Andreas’ conviction, design always has to serve the idea. Anything that doesn’t promote the story has no place in a film. And quoting Mies van der Rohe: “Form follows function.“
