Please call me Tobi. I have been working as a creative director and director for film since 2008. With my work I want to help enabling the worlds potential. I focus on empowering stories about society and the visual beauty of film to raise the frequency.
This about me page is about you too: When you consider working with me, you should know what that means for you as well. First of all: I'll make sure you feel safe, as this should be the foundation for creative work. You won't have to worry about the project/timing/budget working out. I’ll have that covered.
I’m personally committed to my work and I feel responsible for my clients so there is no chance you will be left out in the rain when working with me and my team!
Sometimes people (directors in particular) turn shy when it comes to working for commercial clients. I believe there is a simple solution: Honesty. Let's just be honest with each other. So when you ask me to direct a commercial for some chocolate bar this is obviously not the topic closest to my heart, but this job gives me the opportunity to work next month on a non-budget-film about making the world a better place. That’s why the chocolate bar gets 100% of me too. Peace!
I try to leave all ego out of my work (and my life). Therefore I practice yoga, meditation, improv and dance in order to be present in my life (and my work). Thanks to this spiritual path I feel more energised and have found a way to tap into creativity.
Some people like to know why you do what you do. And the answers usually start with: "Since I was a child". So here comes my answer in case you really want to know: Since I was a child... I felt the urge to change situations I didn't like. I didn't choose this, it was just the way it was. So when one of my relatives was in a bad mood I tried to change that. Even during puberty I was still sure I just had to grow up and then help save the world. But at a certain age you realise that change in the world takes a lot of time. So it's no surprise I fell in love with film, where we can create our own reality right now, showing people how beautiful the world already is when viewed from the right angle. .
My journey first took me to several German film agencies and then out into the world working as freelance film director and producer.
Having come this far on this page, you probably haven't found the information you were looking for, right? Sorry! So perhaps you should just give me a call. Or you can try some frequently asked questions.
Do I write concepts?
Yes. I have worked as Creative Director for years and love to lock myself in for a weekend and develop an idea.
Can I edit?
Yes, same same. I edit a lot of my films myself.
And producing?
Ok. This FAQ thing is not working, let's shorten this up: So sometimes I'm just booked as director by a film production. But in many cases an agency or a client asks me to produce the whole project. So I'm on it from scratch, I develop ideas, discuss them with the client, I pick the team for the job, and I guide my producers through the whole process. On set I'm directing and during post production I might do the edit or work with editors. For sound design, CGI, colour... I know some good people and believe in collaboration.
So after writing this page, I think perhaps a better name for my profession would be Manifestor? I'm manifesting ideas into reality.
