About Christoph

I've recently graduated from the internationally acclaimed Munich Film School as director and author (Fictional Film).
My latest award winning short films range from social drama to fairy tale and animation. They all share my passion for human touch stories with a love for details and everyday heroes. In addition I have over 15 years of experience in the Film and Television business as Cameraman and Postproduction Supervisor. I've worked for and with Wiedemann and Berg, Warner Bros. Germany, Sony Pictures Germany, Constantin Film, Trixter and all mayor German TV Stations.
I am fluent in German and English. Currently I am in Post-Production of my animated diploma film "Peep and the Paperplane", working as Post-Production Coordinator on the animated Feature "Knight Rusty 2" (Caligari Film) and developing my first feature Film.
