Eugen Merher

Eugen was born October 24th 1990 in Chisinau, Moldova and moved to Germany when he was five years old. At that time he discovered his passion for filmmaking with his parents' DV camera that he used for cheap action flicks with his friends. After almost 10 years of being a student, pleasing his parents with a bachelor’s degree in communications and making lots of spec commercials and short films at the infamous Filmakademie Ludwigsburg, he is finally ready to tackle the real world with his storytelling skills.
