Frank started falling in love with the industry of celluloid-art at Berlin based commercial production company Big Fish in the late 1990s. Since then he’s been working on Promos, TVC’s and Television Shows in various positions, before becoming a seaman. After sailing the world for a couple of years, he returned to the shores of his hometown Berlin. In 2012 he founded Berlin Fashion Film Festival.

Since then BFFF has developed into a leading platform for creative filmmakers, agencies and brands. It defines “state-of-the-art-filmmaking” and provides the environment to discover trends and talents and to kickstart new possibilities.

I was born in …. 
Berlin

I now live in…
The constant urge to improve and to create something new.

I’m listening to….
My wife (she says, I should do that even more!)

Watching…
My child grow. The most fascinating and surprising storytelling one can imagine.

Reading…
More emails than books.

Dreaming of…
Reading more books than emails.

Sometimes I wish I were …
More focused. But there’s too many intriguing things out there that distract me whenever it’s (in)convenient. And to be honest, I actually enjoy those distractions pretty much!

My most valuable social media app is…
A good restaurant or bar.

In the end what really matters…
Is passion, authenticity, honesty…and above all: family!
