Oliver Würffell’s love for filmmaking hasn’t changed since he first picked up his parents’ camcorder. From then on he knew he would be a storyteller. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts with summa cum laude honors at the University of Konstanz he worked on production side in Munich, before he became a fully freelance director in 2011. His style was then unseen, as he combined authenticity with a cinematic touch. He right away worked for international brands and with global stars. The film for the print Magazine Vangardist won awards such as Cannes Lions, D&AD, Europbest in 2015 to name a few. His breakthrough work “Frozen Tundra” not only put him on the map of international production companies, it was later also licensed by the biggest league in world - NFL - in 2019.

In 2016 he moved to New York and lives here ever since. He directed several global launch campaign for German car brands like Audi, BMW and Mercedes but also the Oscar film for Cadillac in 2019 and is part of the Directors Guild of America.

His ability to blend his love of humans, high end brands and film has lead Oliver to work alongside some of the world’s largest brands and biggest names: Audi, Cadillac, BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Land Rover, Rimowa, RedBull, Sony, Converse and stars like Neymar Jr., Manuel Neuer, Carlo Ancelotti, Richard Branson, Lewis Hamilton and Marky Ramone.

However, it is Oliver’s genuine love for understanding narrative that gives all his work - from high-end TVC to long-form documentary - a tangible cinematic quality.
