Award-winning director Tom Schlagkamp has signed with Saville Productions for exclusive commercial directorial representation in North America. Tom’s breakthrough short film Rock 'n' Roll Manifesto was awarded first place at the Cannes Young Director Awards 2013. Written and directed for the German music magazine VISIONS, Rock n’ Roll is a vignette storytelling piece narrated by Pantera's Phil Anselmo. The film was widely lauded as a riveting and gritty visual ode to the bona fide “blood, sweat and tears” behind the rock lifestyle.
Based in Berlin, Tom began his career as a sound and light technician. He transitioned from music into film through RTL Germany. From editing and motion graphics design, he began shooting commercials, shorts and music videos, including campaigns and movie trailers for films such as The Bourne Conspiracy, Borat, X-Men. Tom went on to study directing at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. He was quickly singled as a rising director in showcases around Germany for his authentic kinetic style.
Saville Executive Producer, Rupert Maconick adds, “Tom adds a raw, real visual style and shows a deep understanding of storytelling. He is able to find creative solutions for smaller budgets as shown in his Rock spot, which won at Cannes. This makes him an even stronger contender for clients and agencies.”
As a young, creative visionary, Tom’s work is driven by the interconnecting parts of the film process, from developing the script to bringing in the elements of music and sound design, and facilitating different ways to shoot to bring a story to life. He brings a style that is both strikingly visual and highly conceptual.
At Saville, Tom joins a top stable of talent including some of Hollywood’s leading feature film directors: Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), Bryan Singer (X-Men), Gavin O’Connor (Warrior), James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), Paul Haggis (Crash), and high-end commercials directors including: Alex & Steffen, Ben Richardson, David Harner, Morgan Neville and Richard de Aragues.view more - CreativeSaville Productions Los Angeles, Tue, 15 Apr 2014 09:21:43 GMT
