Andreas Dahn’s combined professional experience in visual effects (VFX) and storytelling is a rare catch.
After first internships in practical effects, he has been working as a VFX artist in Germany and India. His credits include the Emmy-awarded series GAME OF THRONES, Wes Anderson’s GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 and the Oscar-nominated BBC short THE GRUFFALO.
At the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg he studied film directing and made multiple short films. He was awarded with scholarships at the University of California (UCLA) and the European Film Academy (EFA). His thesis film DER SANDMANN, based on the famous German gothic novel, was screened at international film festivals, in German television and is published on DVD. As Filmmaker in Residence at the Zurich University of the Arts he explored new ways of filmmaking by combining photogrammetry, motion capture, realtime rendering and VR. Besides his personal projects, he worked as a director for UFA GmbH, Intel Germany and MackMedia GmbH.
„GREAT FILMMAKING REQUIRES HEART & TEAMWORK IN EVERY STEP.
THAT’S WHY I LOVE THE WHOLE PROCESS, FROM WRITTEN WORDS TO POLISHED PIXELS.“
Andreas has been teaching at international film & media schools, such as the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, SAE Institute and Zurich University of the Arts. Additionally he offers his services as a creative consultant or VFX supervisor. He lives in Ludwigsburg & Berlin.
