OUR TEAM

Karl Krings

– Director & Producer –

 

Director

 

Autodidact Karl Krings was born on a warm summer day in the beautiful Odenwald. Grown up in the intoxication of synthesizer sounds of the 80s and educated as an “down to earth free spirit”, he found the love of creativity and rap music in 1996.

 

After more than 15 produced music albums, hundreds of live concerts, a multitude of touring and dozens of live feature films, music compositions, on tv, radio and cinema like for ARD, ZDF, RTL, RATPACK, WESTSIDE, ZIEGLER, PANTHALEON, CORAZON, CONSTANTIN FILM, XAVIER NAIDOO, SEBASTIAN FITZEK, NENA, MC RENE, IRA MAY, BARRY CUNNINGHAM, ROHWOLT, FISCHER, LÜBBE, DROEMER KNAUR, a new passion was born.

 

After two turbulent decades as an composer and sound designer, he fell into a few wild years of creative acting as an director, in over 20 produced music videos and hundreds of small to large web film productions. His avant-garde approach to camera settings, light & shadow, editing and music, makes him a “swiss army knife” for almost every film production. Creativity paired with a refined and technical versed mind.

 

In 2016, years after the birth of christ, Karl Krings leads the WOODFILM GmbH and the flourishing odenwald film art, together with his business partner Norman Kriese, into a new era.

Norman Kriese

– Director of Photography –

 

Director of Photography

 

He was born as an “Thuringian” in the city of Suhl. The idyll of the Thuringian Forest was mind changing for his love of light and nature.

 

In the early 2000s he moved to his city of choice, Frankfurt am Main, where he successfully completed his business studies. He worked for all private and public TV channels. With a camera traineeship he changed over to the scenic world of production with various projects at Film Academy in Ludwigsburg. Driven by his passion for complex camera movements, he technically developed his own camera stabilization system for film, even before the invention of today's electronic “gimbals”. In addition to driving shots on the ground, this enabled him to create unique pictures out of helicopters and airplanes. On his way he get known with the producer and director Karl Krings, who was looking for a reliable cameraman for his short movie “Untot in Deutschland”, for which he was able to shoot stable pictures from an helicopter. As a result of this marriage, a large number of image and music video productions were created and the idea for WOODFILM was born.

 

Norman Kriese convinces by his calm acting on the film set and manages to reliably develop a distinctive picture aesthetic for the most diverse clients.
