I work as a filmmaker and software developer in Berlin. I am currently finishing my studies at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin and experimenting with different video formats for new projects. Scrolling down, you can find some of my earlier films.



For my new short film Mysterious Objects At Midnight I am looking for

Male Actors (20-45 years)

The film tells a story about the straight truck driver Toni who enters a fantastic cruising forest. He makes friends with two gay men and together they explore the jungle-like nature, their male bodies and bring movement into the disturbed relationship between gay and straight men.

There will be homoerotic scenes in it and the protagonists will be naked in some scenes, so this should not be a problem for you. 7 Shoot Days around Berlin. Any language skills are okay. Duration of the film will be approx. 25 mins. Open to Actors, models or non-professionals.

In April 2018, I went to Athens for 3 weeks where I met a couple of actors through the dating app Grindr. Based on the guys I met, I developed a script for a short film.

This project analyzes the jungle of a big city with all its streets, passages, subways, bus lines and hidden places. Through the internet and with their phones, people discover unknown places and become connected to unknown people and their secret lives. Like plants in a jungle, the storylines will be intertwined and fragmentary.

I shot the film on the Sony A7s II in 4:3 aspect ratio. The film is in post production.
