Biography

+

Florian was born in Karlsruhe, Germany to an architect family. After DJing and working as a Graphic Designer, Florian was studying Computer Science when he became interested in film. Not wanting to leave something unfinished, he convinced his professor that digital film is a new area that should be included in computer sciences. Since no digital film courses existed, Florian was given plenty of room to explore his interests. He directed shorts and other film projects including Delay, a project he wrote, produced and directed, co-financed by ARRI, as the premiere black-white movie shot on the their first digital camera.

Florian quickly discovered the music-video industry as an editor. Soon he began editing commercials, focussing mainly on automobile, actor-based, beauty and life-style spots. His edits are appreciated for their sense of rhythm and emotion.

After spending a couple of years in editing rooms, Florian became more and more enthusiastic about creating moving images himself so he started directing music videos and commercials in several styles and genres. In 2014 he did a campaign to engage the residents of Berlin to support it’s application for the 2024 Olympic Games. The field of sports was a natural fit for his preferred style and strong visual approach. Florian continued to focus on sports in order to hone his expertise and develop a storytelling approach.

Now, being adept in the field of sports, he is exploring new genres that work with his moody, cinematic style, e.g., fashion, life-style, and cars. At the moment he is working on a series of sport-films under the title faceoff.

Florian is based between Berlin and London.
