Megan Courtis is an emerging film director, based in Berlin. In 2015, she graduated with a 1st class honours in Performance and Visual Art (Theatre) at the University of Brighton and shortly after moved to Berlin, Germany.
She has experience in direction, creative direction, set design/styling, writing for performance for both film and theatre as well as videography, editing and sound design. Since 2016 she has been directing, conceptualising and producing commercial short form video content at international magazine and production house Freunde von Freunden, who are known for their distinct visual storytelling. As their in-house art director, she specialised in crafting unique moving image campaigns for globally recognised clients like BMW, MINI, Adobe, VITRA and more.
Now working freelance, she dedicates herself to experimenting with analogue film, writing surreal stories and composing dream like scenes using a sensual aesthetic through film, photography, performance, fashion and sculpture. She uses film as her canvas to sculpt and craft nostalgic, sensitive and sensual interpretations of everyday life.
Her personal film works range from music videos, commercial brand films to art films and have been premiered on prestigious online publications such as Vogue Italia, DAZED Media, The Fader Magazine, Girls in Film and Indie Magazine.
