About

Hi. I am a director & storyteller based in Vienna, Austria.

After a Bachelor degree in Computer Science, I decided to start over and worked my way into directing commercials, TV shows and brand films. Over the last few years I found interest in animation and picked up my technical skills to head into digital storytelling.

While different formats demand a very unique approach, the core elements are the same – character-driven, compact storytelling.

 

Live Action

It all started with live action – my bread and butter. Commercials, TV shows, films or emotional brand films – telling a compelling stories in visual narratives.

Animation

Everything’s possible in animation, but the same rules apply. Compelling characters, emotional plot and engaging camera work in a world designed with love to detail.  

Digital Storytelling

The future is now and there are a whole lot of incredible ways to tell compelling stories – mobile apps, location based storytelling, augmented reality – and the list goes on and on.

 

Together with my partner Toni Weiss I founded the Storytelling Studio Little Lights Studio – we focus on digital storytelling in every possible medium.
