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.

Let's quote a bio luckily somebody else wrote:
"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". In 2021 he directed four episodes of ZDFneo sitcom "Ich dich auch!". One year later he directed as well the second season as well as several commercial campaigns. Right now he is writing his feature debut "1992" and continues to find a healthy balance in between fiction, commercials and holidays."

I love to make films. If you want to collaborate drop me a line. ♥
