While studying economics, Martin worked as a projectionist in a small arthouse cinema in the evening and was a regular guest at his own screenings. Shortly afterwards he followed his love for cinema and turned to film production.
His creative talent was quickly recognised and he soon realised his first projects as a director. His long history as a Producer with Soup shaped his pragmatic as well as unconventional way of working and enabled him to realise very different projects in an exciting and innovative way, but always with high visual quality.
Oliver Leutnecker discovered his passion for filmmaking at an early age already. As a teenager he started making music videos and short films. After many years of work experience in the camera department for feature film productions, he teamed up with Martin Richter to work in advertising. Together they two form a directors duo, which stands out due to its uncomplicated and efficient approach.
