Andreas Schmied

writer/director Taking It Back
Andreas Schmied spent his childhood in a small village in the austrian mountains. He began his directing career in his teens, shooting shorts with his friends and music videos for local musicians.
Moving to Vienna in 1998 Schmied shot dozens of low budget videos where he served as his own cinematographer, editor and production designer.

In 1999, he started his own TV production company, SofaSafari, and wrote, produced and directed numerous hours of television.
In 2013, he made his feature film debut with the blue-collar dramedy “Die Werkstürmer” (eng. “Taking it Back”), which became a huge success in Austria and was a hit on iTunes and DVD.
Andreas lives in Vienna with his wife and his son. He is currently working on his second film.
