There is no more magic in German film, and I want to change that. It's not for nothing that I wanted to become a magician, then an actor, and finally a director, even as a child. I want to be among the best, so I also try to always learn from the best and reverently follow the greatest magicians of my film world like Fellini, Tykwer, Aronofsky, Gondry, Jonze, Iñaritu, Allen, Nolan, Fincher, Anderson and Östlund. Countering tragedy with comedy and delighting audiences with the unimaginable is my personal goal here. The cinema I follow should enchant, it should amaze, but it should also touch, because it tells of real people and their problems. Because it always fights better together, I ally myself with like-minded filmmakers and found the film collective uberwave with them. We are adventurers, we want to enter undiscovered territory, experiment and try things out. With a map in our pockets, we want to cultivate openness and also the fun of trying things out.
