Cover Image for Christopher Schlierf

Creating has always been Christopher’s major driving force in expressing himself – starting with drawing comics at school, later as a rock’ n’ roll lead singer, then as a fashion photographer and indie filmmaker. After graduating in film and animation in 2009 he was awarded a scholarship in Hollywood and worked at Constantin Film and Warner Bros before hitting the commercial market as a director. His short films, music videos and commercials won dozens of international prizes. 

For years, Christopher studied the Hollywood book of tricks to bring the same magic into his own films. For him, it is the mixture of entertaining, thrilling and impactful storytelling, big scope images, genre set pieces, jaw dropping action sequences and layered world building. In 2015, he founded the Directors Duo – a creative powerhouse that pioneered on the edge of technology and made its mark in the commercial-, film- and gametrailer-world. Till now, he has sharpened his skills on over a hundred movie-productions worldwide. With every project he works on, he utilizes his experience in creative development, scriptwriting, working with actors, technical knowledge, photography, editing, VFX and music composing. No matter if this is an action packed scene for a Marvel blockbuster like “Ant-Man”, a thrilling trailer for a million dollar game franchise like “Assassin’s Creed”, “Just Cause”, “Rocket League” or “League of Legends” or a slick looking design piece for one of the most desired car brands on the planet like BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Cadillac or Porsche. 

For Christopher, creativity is a muscle he trained over the years to make the impossible possible.
