Creativity rarely follows a set plan. Dustin Schöne is a great example of the fact that it definitely pays to get off of the beaten path to reach your goals.
It was while working as an editor for a publishing house that Dustin discovered his passion for film. Deciding to forego a classic film university education has enabled him to develop his own visual language, far removed from the conventional standard.
He left the world of publishing to take a chance at working in the film industry. This quickly paid off: he built up a portfolio that included numerous high-quality advertising and portrait films as well as music videos and lifestyle productions.
As diverse as these fields are, Dustin's sense of aesthetics: an up close and personal narrative technique coupled with emotional moments, unify his work. This unique style has already proven to be a favorite of clients such as Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, and Nike.
Although his is first and foremost a director, he also always enjoys taking the camera into his own hands as a DP.
