MANITU is the Berlin-based Director/DoP duo of Björn Swoboda and Moritz Carstens.
Moritz started his career as a producer in a major production company and Björn as a freelance music composer. They met on set of the first short film Björn directed and haven’t parted since. With Björn growing up in the States and Moritz being a true "Berliner“, their social backgrounds and experiences in the business have always complemented each other. They share the same sense for visual storytelling and are continually inspired by each other's ideas.
MANITU has a sharpness for understanding a brand's specific needs, its universe and its path for the future. They enjoy tackling social issues and strive to produce films with subcultural relevance and zeitgeist. What really sets them apart though, is their commitment and energy; their drive to create an engaging experience for the viewer.
But MANITU isn’t just the combined expertise of two individuals, it’s also the product of a real friendship.
