  • Back in Germany for Brand Storytelling
    "Tell me: how do you explain that gap in your director's cv?"

    Since 2013, I have been running a boutique production company YACHTFILM in Palma de Mallorca, focused (as you may have guessed from the name) on the leisure marine industry.

    In 2019 I decided that while I love that bit of my job, I miss working with proper brands, production companies and agencies. So, now I am back on the scene, dividing my time between Spain and Germany.
