I was born in the late 80’s in an east-german village. There was no Super8 film, but we had a lot of trees.
Before directing my own stuff I worked as an assistant director for directors such as Michael Haneke and The Wachowskis. I love to make films. No matter if it’s narrative, music video, commercial or any other format. Really.
If you have a nice idea and want to collaborate just drop me a line.

Still more info? Let's quote the CZAR bio:
"Johannes was born in 1986 in Erfurt, Germany. He graduated from Freie Universität Berlin with a degree in political science and worked for several years as a feature film AD with directors such as Michael Haneke and the Wachowski Brothers. In 2008 he co-founded the theatre and art collective Zweite Reihe and began directing short films, music videos and started to work on first commercial work.

In 2014 he signed with CZAR and has shot commercials for clients such as Deutsche Bahn, adidas, Ricola and ADAC. In 2014 he won the Best Newcomer Award at Die Klappe and the German competition of The Cannes Young Lions. At ADC 2018 he won Silver for his Music Video ‘Sind Alpina Weiss’. A year later, at Die Klappe he won Gold and two Bronze for his ADAC films ‘Don’t Travel with Mom’ and a Bronze Lion for IBIS ‘Instasitter’ at Cannes Lions.

2019 and 2020 he focused on co-writing and directing the FYEO exclusive audio series "Makel" and continues to find a fine balance in between fiction, commercial and promo work."

That was a lot of info.
