Growing up in an art commune might have sown the seeds for Bernhard Landen’s career in the world of commercial films. Get me out of here! Were his only thoughts as he set off for Los Angeles with an open mind and the artisan spirit he’d inherited from the commune, in the hope that art could eventually fill a pocket full of cash.
On arrival, he started writing, visiting courses for scriptwriting, surviving on packets of crisp bread while he completed his first short film.
His fourth short film, “Killer”, was initially released in cinemas to Germanspeaking audiences, and later shown at several international festivals, picking up numerous prizes along the way, kicking off his career as a commercial filmmaker. It wasn’t long before he was shortlisted for his “Red Cross” spot in Cannes, awarded gold at the NY Festival for “Compuserve”, a Clio award for “Zorro”, and subsequently attracting prestigious clients such as Orange, McDonalds, Volkswagen, Beiersdorf, Coca Cola and Deutsche Telekom, to name a few.
