Andreas grew up in a small village in Northern Bavaria with no filmmaking community whatsoever. He later went on to study Media and Communication Science at Ilmenau University of Technology. It wasn't before his fifth semester when he interned for a local TV Station, that an old passion of his was relit: the passion for filmmaking. Playing guitar and singing in several bands, Andreas took it upon himself to shoot and direct his bands' music videos, gaining first experience in serious filmmaking. After working several odd jobs after graduation in 2016, while saving up for his dream, Andreas moved to Berlin in Mid-2018 to pursue a career as a director of photography.
