Konstantin is a film and theater director, who is technically based in Berlin, but divides his time mainly between Germany, the US and Lebanon…or wherever life takes him.
He studied applied film, theatre and fine arts at the University of Hildesheim, and Jewish studies and the history and culture of the Middle East at the Freie Universität Berlin. As a video designer he has created work for stage productions in Oldenburg, Pforzheim, Berlin and Helsinki. With Canadian performance company Mammalian Diving Reflex, he has worked as a director, designer and creative associate in Toronto, London, Bern, Singapore, Glasgow, Philadelphia, Prague, Copenhagen, Essen, Portland, Gwangju, Hemsbach and Sydney.
His film work includes commercials, music videos, short films and documentaries. His most recent documentary, ‘Hattie Goes Cruising’, continues to tour festivals internationally, after premiering at the 2015 New Orleans Film Festival. He has directed and edited commercials for s.Oliver, comma, Windsor., JOOP!, Eterna and the German Finance Authority, with agencies in Munich, Hamburg and New York.
Currently, Konstantin is developing several projects: a feature length follow-up with Hattie; a documentary about two young bisexual Indian masseurs in Chennai and a travel-documentary following German creative director Thomas Hayo and fashion designer Wolfgang Joop around the world along the ‘line of ancient sites’.
