Hey, I am Julian Spillner, a Director living in Berlin. Most of my work is based around humans, sometimes humorous sometimes serious. I like the possibility of bringing emotions to the screen by telling stories in a simple and direct manner be it for music videos, short films or advertisement.
I started doing photography when I was six years old. After working as a freelance photographer for three years I started getting more and more into directing, doing numerous short films while studying digital media in Bremen and Istanbul. Today my roots in photography can still be seen through the aestetic in my work.
After finishing university I moved to Berlin to work at award winning production company Partizan. At Partizan I worked on big commercials for clients including Beiersdorfer, Hornbach, Mercedes and Bionade.
Having learned a lot, I moved on to be a director myself. Now I work as a freelance director focusing on commercials, while staying true to my music videos roots. In my films I like to combine different characters and the resulting challenges in working closely with actors, preferably with dialogue. My passion is humor, especially if it is dry. My clients include eBay, Media Markt, Henkel, Sony Music, Spotify, and many more.
