    Konstantin Koewius

    Born in 1979 in Hilden, Germany and raised in Ratingen, Konstantin Koewius soon went to Düsseldorf to become a student of social and cultural studies. But in addition to that, he was already working as a cutter, cinematographer and media educator on numerous projects. He fnished his academic studies with the documentary »Wecken und geweckt werden« (»To Wake Up And Be Awoken«), in which he, with help of others, showed a portrait of the punk rock scene in Düsseldorf from 1977 up to today. Afterwards Konstantin realised many video clips (including the metalcore-band »Callejon« and »DJ Unkut«), among other flm projects, and had a lot of teaching assignments at the university of applied sciences in Düsseldorf and the university of Wuppertal.

    Today the flmmaker lives and works in Wuppertal at »Medienprojekt Wuppertal«.There he is in charge of graphic designs and the developing and realising of short flm projects as well as half-hour documentary- and educational flms. In addition to his work for the »Medienprojekt« he also works as a freelance director and cinematographer.

    The constant coopertation with other flmmakers from Wuppertal and Cologne on many different flm projects, to him, is a necessary outlet for his creative energy.
