Linus is the Hamburg-based director whose reputation as a maverick was globally imprinted in 2004 when his student film, a romantic fantasy told at 2,400 frames per second for Calvin Klein Watches, gained international attention.

A decade into a professional career, Linus’ distinctive style – a marriage of stunning visuals, compelling storytelling and a mastery of visual effects – brands campaigns for many of the advertising world’s leading players.

Linus’ driving motivation as a commercial filmmaker is to reveal the emotional potential of the script, and induce the viewers to connect with it. Linus approaches every project from this point of view, whether the world is fantastic, or realistic.
