Andreas Dahn (EN)

In 2000, Andreas Dahn entered the film business through internships in modeling and visual effects (VFX). After four years of work experience as a VFX artist, he was admitted to study directing at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in 2005 with the award-winning short film The Maid from Hilltop Manor. Alongside his studies, he continued to work as a VFX artist in Germany and India. His graduation film E.T.A. Hoffmann’s Der Sandmann won awards in Milano and Hungary, was broadcast on German television and is on sale on DVD. After graduation, Andreas created effects for Game of Thrones, Grand Budapest Hotel and several Marvel films. He received grants from UCLA, EFA and in 2019 from the Ernst Göhner Foundation, which allowed him to realize the short film Haus in der Ferne (House in the Distance) at the Immersive Arts Space, ZHdK. For this he combined new technologies such as photogrammetry and virtual reality with the motion capture process.
