Before Marc Rissmann decided to become a director, he got educated to be a professional actor, studied acting at the Ernst Busch acting school in Berlin and worked at different theaters across Germany, such as Deutsches Theater Berlin and the Staatsschauspielhaus in Dresden. Currently he got involved as an actor for a few different international Netflix productions. This background comes in handy in terms of being a director, since he has a special sense for bringing out great acting talent and to put people in scene. This reflects also in the international awards he won so far. He was distinguished with this years Cannes Young Director Award and won the XITE Award for Best German Music Video in 2015 - and this despite the fact that he’s only working as a director for a short time.
We look forward for him to bring fresh air into our Rekorder reel.
