Jan Schöttler is a Berlin based director & filmmaker. He creates commercials, portraits and short films in the field of sports,
contemporary culture and lifestyle. His approach is to tell things in an authentic but charming way and with a wink of the eye.
 
He often uses animation to enrich his storytelling and to create a compelling mix of live action footage and motion graphics. A wide network of
can-do people support the execution of even large scale ideas, that way the quality of his product keeps its' impact throughout the production process.
 
He holds a BA in media design and beside his love for what he does, this guy likes mountains, oceans, rock music, good coffee, Italian food,
hitting the road and to see and experience the world. And he think´s it´s weird to write about himself in third person. Er spricht auch Deutsch.
