Biography Constantin Werner

 

Constantin Werner studied Art in Paris at ESAG Penninghan and Philosophy at the FU Berlin. He has directed and produced feature films, drama TV, stage plays and music videos in the US, Germany and in Eastern Europe.

His second feature film THE PAGAN QUEEN, a historic drama with fantasy elements, based on the legend of Libuše (the Slavic queen of 8th century Bohemia) has been sold to over a dozen countries including the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany and Russia.

His award winning first feature DEAD LEAVES premiered at the AFI festival in Los Angeles. The film went on to festivals around the world, including the Mar del Plata festival in Argentina and the Gothenburg film festival in Sweden. (The Belgium film magazine Film Critic called it "daring and profound.") The film was released in the US by Cult Epics/RYKO/Time Warner. 

Constantin's producing credits include the action TV-series PUMA (directed by martial arts legend Donnie Yen) for the German network RTL, the independent films FIREFLIES (starring Kate Mara, Dan Frazer, Isabel Glaser) and the Cult Epics release BETTIE PAGE, DARK ANGEL.

 

His stage directing credits include his play BOX for La MaMa ETC, New York City's oldest avant-garde theater (The Village Voice: "Constantin Werner has concocted a delightful comedy") and the West Coast premiere of Pulitzer Prize nominee Adam Rapp's play BLACKBIRD ("not for the faint of heart ... Constantin Werner keeps the action boiling" said the Los Angeles Times.)

His music video credits include videos for the LA artists Terror, Scarling, Jasmine Ash, Gliss, The Dead Boys Club (with Diggity Dave), The Deep Eynde, Punk Bunny, Fire Bug and The Sixth Chamber.

He is currently developing the fantasy trilogy IN THE LOST LANDS, a new film franchise based on three stories by George RR Martin, to be directed by Paul W Anderson (Resident Evil franchise), starring Milla Jovovich.
