Christian Schilling

It all started back in the 1990s with his father’s coveted Video-8 camcorder and the family cat “Polly”. We’d like to think that Christian basically invented the cute cat virals but it turns out that Polly wasn’t ready for internet stardom. Christian’s next specs for Ohropax and Mentos, both directed while he was at the Baden-Württemberg film academy did however gain International recognition and served to launch his commercial career. 

Driven by his passion for short, emotional stories and visually stunning pictures, Christian excels in well paced rhythmic vista storytelling. Among numerous awards, Christian has already won the Young Director Award in Cannes four times.
