With a strong background in music, Manfred creates audiovisual works as a director, cinematographer, and editor.
After his studies of Music and Media with a focus on audiovisual design, he worked as a film director at the design agency GROSSE8 for over five years until he turned to freelance work in 2020.
His works create worlds that invite emotional participation. The viewer is actively encouraged to bring his or her own thoughts and feelings to bear, thus establishing a deeper connection to the content that goes beyond the traditional storytelling. In this process the choice of the right medium always depends on the content to be transported.
Over the years, Manfred has developed an artistic curiosity at the intersections between moving images, music, sound, spatial installations, and genre boundaries, which allows him to always explore new challenges and tools.
His multiple award-winning works has been published in several high-profile online publications, including Directors Notes and Designboom magazine, and has been shown at numerous film festivals around the globe.
