Graduate MA Serial Storytelling
Born in Saarbrücken in 1991, Helena Lucas dropped out of her psychology studies after two years to study film directing at the ifs. Her graduation film »Konstruktion« premiered at the Max Ophüls Prize in 2017. A few months later, she completes her master’s degree in »Serial Storytelling«. At the same time, she writes for »Unter Uns« and, as a team enthusiast, is happy that daily soaps only work thanks to writers’ rooms, if only because of the time pressure. She has founded a Cologne scriptwriters’ circle and is currently writing her directorial debut »Entschuldigung«.
»Life is absurd. At birth we are thrown in at the deep end without being asked, the cards are laid, a series of often random events that we have to make the best of, and in the end we are still dead. Stories help us make sense of the chaos. And best of all, to be able to laugh about it too. No wonder I became a writer.«
