Write. Direct. Repeat.
I'm a Director and Script Developer with 10 years of industry experience. I can help you with developing scripts for various use of fields. From Social Media Clips, over Online Campaigns to TVCs. I directed films in fashion, automotive, music, product and brand identity. I can handle talents of every aspect ranging from celebrities and kids to dogs and donkeys.
I consider myself quite funny and good with people but honestly that's up to every one else to judge. Feel free to roam around this page, have a look at some of the work I did or get some further information at the about section.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Best, Max.

A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT ME
A little something about him
Maximilian was born in Northern Germany 30 something years ago and loved strolling around his dad's goldsmith toolshop with his little brother. Building something with your own hands made an early impression on him. This resulted in developing a passion for arts and crafts. Besides his interest in Japanese Car Culture, hiking, running, silly jokes and playing hide and seek.
After school he was able to start his studies at the University of Arts in Brunswick and got his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications Design and Time based Media by 2012. Through these years he translated his eye for aesthtetics into the craft of moving images and began working as a freelance filmmaker, who shortly after got a job at the "Markenfilm Group" in Hamburg. Europes largest Commercial Film Production. Starting as an Art Director in 2013 and becoming part of Markenfilm's very own Web Content unit "Virus" in 2015, where he extended his work as a Cameraman and Script Writer. In the coming years he began working as a Director and the scope of productions grew more diverse.
By 2017 he got promoted to Head of Department at Virus and played a huge part in developing the unit into a successful business of 10 employees. He worked for several major brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Yamaha, Deutsche Bahn, L'Óreal, Share Now, Aida, Eon or AEG and worked on several music videos.
By early 2020 he decided to face new challenges and became "Head of Creation" at Hamburg and Berlin based production agency "Bubbles Film", that has a strong focus on high quality commercial films ranging from major Web Content to TV productions. He's also working directly with interesting and trustful clients by offering his creative services both as a Director or Script Developer.
