Stephan Anspichler began his career in Tourism, however, his personal interests have always been guided by the word and image. Parallel to his formal training in business school, he worked as a freelance writer for several regional and national newspapers, as well as for specialist magazines. He then worked closely with the theater and film director Didi Danquart, as well as with the opera director Philipp Himmelmann, who inspired Anspichler’s own development as a director. He attended film school in New York and began to realize his creative potential. His graduation film, York Street 1929, screened at numerous film festivals and received awards in the Best Direction and Best Screenplay categories. Along with his other short film projects, including Baton Boy, he is currently involved in pre-production on two feature films and a further feature documentary.
