    Gerrit Magnus Beduhn

    Born 1992 in Rendsburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Gerrit was interested in movies and television early on in his youth. With his friends he shot his first movie in the garden of his parents' home. Several movies followed during his time in school, culminating in a 40-minute drama that premiered at a local cinema. During his schoolyears, he also started to shoot promo films and commercials for local companies. After finishing school, he moved to Hamburg – still his hometown - to study movie direction. During his studies, he gained experience in multiple movie productions as assistant director and assistant producer. He continued this work after his studies, but also started working as a continuity supervisor. The different productions lead him to work in several European countries and in Asia.
    During a stay in Canada, he developed the idea for "Shattered". He produced and shot the movie while working on his other television- and movie projects.
