Boris Seewald is a director and editor based in Berlin with a passion for music and dance films.
With a musical background and an innate ability to coordinate image and sound, Seewald seeks his form of expression in the rhythmical illustration of music.
His short film “Momentum” and the music videos for “The Feast”, “Spark” and “Disco” by artist Ralf Hildenbeutel have received more than twenty awards between them (including the Cinedans Dioraphte Jury Award – the highest for dance film worldwide), and have played at more than a hundred film festivals worldwide. He also directed the successful campaign “#klangberlins” for the Konzerthaus Berlin.

 

With a clear intention of pursuing a career in film, he began working on his own film projects and amassing work experience in this field. Though Boris Seewald is primarily self-taught, he studied directing at the Filmarche and film studies at the Berlin University.
Since founding his company, Seewald & Hanna, he freelances and has completed music videos for labels including Deutsche Grammophon, has worked as director and in the post-production department for short, corporate and feature films and has edited numerous commercials (e.g. the Berliner Philharmoniker) and television series.
