WRITER & DIRECTOR
WRITER AND DIRECTOR
My curiosity and ambition drive me to tell good, clear and therefore persuasive stories in different cinematic formats. For me, it’s about rediscovering my view of the world, or my energy, regardless of what I’m translating into filmic narrative. And that should always be entertaining and witty – I don’t view this as mutually exclusive. On the contrary!ANDREAS GRÄFENSTEIN
I create documentary films and advertising as well as stage multimedia cinema shows for museums and large companies. The challenge I am constantly seeking is to be able to bring my dramaturgical and staging experiences to new formats and narrative contexts.
I have developed and directed a number of TV programs for the French-German broadcaster Arte and have created award winning documentary films, such as the miniseries “Kunst und Verbrechen” (“art and crime”), which was awarded a Grimme Preis in 2016. I have also directed commercials and branded content for numerous clients such as Gazprom, Sat1/Pro7, the City of Berlin, the German Football Association, FIFA, the Schaeffler Group, Siemens, and the Social Democratic Party of Germany.
