BIOGRAPHY

[ & FILMOGRAPHY ]
NILS KELLER

Nils Keller studied film directing in the same city where he was born. Munich. He loves to tell all kinds of stories ranging from 10 seconds to 120 minutes, and he treats each one of them as if they were his own children (which they are in some way). For him, the most important qualities in a good story are: entertainment, astonishing surprises and well - good storytelling.
 

He is working for commercial clients such as Siemens, Pringles, Huawei and E.ON. His commercials have received multiple awards, including a Gold World Medal at the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards and a Finalist Certificate at the Golden Award of Montreux. Alongside his work as a commercial director, he writes and directs short and feature film projects that have been part of several film festivals around the world.
