Werner was born in Munich and lives in Berlin.

The call to film reached him during a job at Bavaria’s public broadcasting station “Bayerischer Rundfunk” in the semester break. This call was so loud, that he quit his studies of German and Philosophy at the LMU and started at the very low end of the film industry. He earned his first spurs at the great trick specialist ‘Magicon’, worked for a long time as a lighting technician and not so long as a sound assistant and learned the trade from scratch during this time.

1994 – 2000: Studies at the Munich Film School, department “Film- und Fernsehspiel”.

Since 2001: freelance director & screenwriter.

Since 2018: production of image films


Languages: English (fluent) / French (not quite so fluent)

International experience: Argentina, Italy, North Korea (!), Spain, South Africa, Ukraine, Hungary, USA

Profile: experienced director, who, after almost 20 years in the industry, can no longer be shaken by a crisis on set. Passionate storyteller.

In advertising: likes comedy & dialogue, very good at acting.

As an author: likes genre, an inclination to thrillers and crime thrillers, speciality are Bavarian comedies

In any case, I like to do conceptual work, even for weird and unusual projects. Always send me your inquiry.

I like to put together individual showreels. Samples from the scripts on request.
