    Monty Scholz

    Monty was born in Germany and grew up in Tarifa / Spain, where he completely committed himself to water sports. As a teenager, Monty and his friends started filming each other on the water which made him discover his passion for filmmaking.

    Over the years he focused more and more on his new passion, working as a freelance filmmaker on smaller sports related projects.

    In 2014 he moved to Hamburg / Germany to work for a production company as a DoP and Editor.

    In 2017 he wrote and directed a kiteboarding campaign which led to the short film ABOUT STEVEN. The same year, preproduction started for his latest short film project, which he is currently working on.

    Monty lives in Hamburg and speaks English, Spanish and German fluently.
