started his professional life as a photographer, then studied film directing at the renowned Munich Film School, where he quickly made himself a name with several award-winning shorts. Moving via Paris to Los Angeles, the young, half French, half German director expanded his carreer into feature film and TV series, staged theatre plays, and directed countless commercials and corporate films.
Richard’s US feature film “The Calling” was shown in cinema and TV all around the world. He also directed a season of one of Germany’s most successful TV series, “Against the Wind”, on Maui, Hawaii. On a different note, Richard staged J.-J. Rousseau’s Pygmalion, a highly praised adaptation that was broadcasted by German/French arthouse channel Arte. And besides directing, Richard was partner in the visual fx house Lizard Lounge for 5 years, greatly refining his editing and visual effect skills.
In the advertising world, Richard worked for most major agencies (DDB, Young, Grey, Havas, BBDO, FCB, etc.) and for big brands like L’Oréal, Daimler-Benz, Maurice Lacroix, Calvin Klein, Olay and many more. His advertising films received more than a dozen awards. He shot all over the world – from the US to India and from Russia to New Zealand – and is used to understand and respect different cultural sensitivities and mentalities.
At the time being, Richard is based in Munich, Germany.
