Florian Behnsen
Born 26th of May in Verden an der Aller // (then) West Germany. Florian studied communications design at the university of applied sciences Darmstadt and finished in 2009 with the animated film „Die Reise zum E36“ (the journey to e36) tutored by Prof. Frank Philippin. From that project a desire was born to work in projects involving storytelling, be it film or interactive media, with a focus on music. Since 2012 Florian lives in Berlin // Germany.
