Susann - Director
Susanne Schmidt Born and raised by the sea – in Rostock – Susann lives now in Berlin. During her studies to become a film and television producer at the University for Film and Television "Konrad Wolf" in Potsdam Babelsberg she had her own car-test series for the TV magazine "Auto & Mobiles". A topic that has never ceased to fascinate her. Specialized in storytelling and cars she directed countless big budget corporate films, commercials and documentaries and has successfully made herself a name as a film director in a male dominated industry. Cars are the focus of her work – as the ultimate symbol of freedom, daydreaming and democratization. For Susann it is extremely important to look outside the box and to search and to implement new ideas. From the familiar and commonplace she creates the surprising and the extraordinary. The results are unique images full of visual intensity and moody atmosphere.
