Florian Arndt

CEO & Director

I love talking animals, naughty kids and playful worlds.
In my films, people either kiss or laugh.
I like to seduce the target audience with emotions,
because life is too short for bad movies.

“The ultimate disaster film”, the title for my first short film at the age of 11 could not have been more appropriate. This was followed by the premiere of my embarrassing 90-minute feature film in front of an audience of 100, as well as another 300 amateur films until my 18th birthday, when I accidentally won 25 film awards worldwide and the rating “Especially Valuable” with my documentary debut “Testfahrer”.

Named “Germany’s best up-and-coming director 2012” by the German Youth Video Award, I founded the film agency Sons of Motion Pictures GmbH in Leipzig, later Coburg, fittingly on Valentine’s Day 2014.

Meanwhile my film family counts 45 permanent employees:inside on 700 m² with 55 film awards. The SONS shoot worldwide commercials, documentaries, series and animated films for well-known clients, such as Microsoft, Daimler, Rotkäppchen-Mumm, RB Leipzig, Lufthansa, Telekom, BMW, A&O Hotels, Immowelt and Schloss Einstein (KIKA).

There was no study or degree – just Abi and Seahorse. Instead, the BVMW claims that I am their youngest federal senator. Today, I share precisely this unconventionally gathered experience as a speaker in lectures as well as together with Nora Lob in our 400,000-subscriber podcast “Feuer&Flamme”, which is nominated for the “German Podcast Award 2021”.
