    About Meret Nora Burger

    Meret Burger is the founder and manager of 4-Films, a Service Production Company in Zurich.

    Born and raised in Mallorca as the daughter of a photographer and a director/actor, Meret Burger was present during photo shoots, in theatre halls, on film sets and during location scoutings ever since she was born. She noticed very early that the film business was her great passion; thus, she already earned her living as a production manager and through production services while studying law.

    Since 1995, Meret continually expanded her filming activities to various European countries, one of them being Switzerland, where she studied Film at the Academy of Design (Hochschule für Gestaltung) in Zurich (now the ZHdK). She majored in directing and script. Her diploma film "Alle meine Mütter" ("All my mothers") won, amongst other things, the audience- and short film prize in Lausanne and was then shown by Fox Warner with 16 copies in Swiss cinemas as supporting film of Jim Sheridon's film "In America".

    She realised, among other, the TV film "Spital in Angst" (line production, SF/ZDF/ORF) and "Alles wird gut" (line production, SF, as well as the films "Mein Name ist Eugen" (line production), "Cargo" (Production counselling) and "Dällebach Kari" (Pre-production).

    Other interesting projects were the supervision of the film "The informant" as a production mangager during the filming in Zurich, as well as the complete service production of the scenes shot in Switzerland for David Fincher's film "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".
