About

„I don‘t only produce audio and video – I create entire worlds.“

„Film is 50% Sound“ (George Lucas) – und in meinen Augen und Ohren gilt das auch umgekehrt. Diese beiden Bereiche kommen nicht ohne einander aus, sie ergänzen sich sogar erst in ihrer Fusion zu dem, was uns den Alltag vergessen lässt: Stimmige, dichte, faszinierende Welten. Wir wollen entführt werden und wunderbare Geschichten erzählt bekommen. Und ich liebe es, dieses Abenteuer zu konstruieren.

Ich will in erster Linie unterhalten. Und dies clever auf qualitativ höchstem Niveau. Deswegen ist stets mein Ziel, kunstvolle und gleichzeitig kommerziell erfolgreiche Produktionen abzuliefern. Und dabei provoziere ich gerne! Denn nichts trifft mein Ziel weniger, als Langeweile und Beliebigkeit. Dementsprechend folge ich meiner Überzeugung, dass das Publikum intelligenter und anspruchsvoller ist, als ihm nachgesagt wird. Am Ende sind Film und Musik vor allem Übertragungsmedien für Leidenschaft, Spaß und Intelligenz. Meine Überzeugung und Herangehensweise an Projekte wurde mir mit Awards und Nominierungen vieler Medienpreise, wie VIVA Comet, ECHO, 1LIVE Krone oder der Deutsche Jugend Filmpreis bestätigt.

DIRECTING / VIDEO PRODUCTION

Von der Konzeption, über Regie bis in einigen Fällen auch zur Postproduction übernehme ich die führende kreative Position eines Videoprojekts. Meine Stärke ist es, faszinierende und eigenständige Welten zu erschaffen und dabei mit cleveren Ideen und Stilmitteln zu überzeugen oder auch zu provozieren.

MUSIC PRODUCTION

Ich produziere hochwertige und radiotaugliche Musik aktuell aus den Bereichen Electro, Electro-/Synthie-Pop, House, Trap und Techno. Ebenso sorge ich bei Videoprojekten für die musikalische Untermalung. Bei der Musikproduktion bediene ich mich Theorien und Grundsätzen der Filmdramaturgie.

MOTION GRAPHIC DESIGN

Neben der Regieleistung biete ich professionelle Animationen und Postproduktion für jeden Bedarf an. Von stilsicheren Erklärvideos, liebevollen Animationsclips bishin zu unsichtbaren Compositings in Videoproduktionen arbeite ich höchst effizient und gestalte stets mit kreativer Leidenschaft, um das Projekt auf die höchste Stufe zu heben. Ich arbeite Firmen und Partnern, wie Red Bull, BASF, Zuio.TV (Frank Elstner Akademie/Axel Springer), Anixe HD oder Labels wie Sony, Warner, WePlay und SuperstarAG, zu.

VITA

Award-winning music producer and director Niels Reinhard was born in Heidelberg, Germany in 1987 and now lives in Mannheim. His creative spirit led him to directing his first short films at the young age of 15 and to starting his career as a DJ at 17. While studying digital media, Niels produced Germany’s very first social media based series in cooperation with a social networking platform for students. In 2010, he completed his bachelor’s degree and later that year, he was awarded the German Youth Film Prize for one of his short films. 2010 was also the year Niels and Tim Hofmann started “Laserkraft 3D”, an avant-garde electronic music live act. Their hit song put the duo on the international music map, appearing on different charts around the world, and it received more than 50 million views on YouTube. The song also received several awards, including the “Goldene Schallplatte” (Golden Record, Germany), a VIVA COMET prize for Best Party Song (German music television award), and three prizes awarded by the German music magazine RAVELINE (categories: Best Newcomer, Best Track, Most Annoying Track). Furthermore, it was nominated for an ECHO (Germany’s most important music award) and the 1LIVE KRONE. Niels Reinhard and Tim Hofmann toured Europe and played many of the most popular clubs as well as some of the biggest international festivals for dance and electronic music. In 2013, Laserkraft 3D was made the musical flagship act for Coca-Cola Germany’s summer campaign. In cooperation with Coca-Cola, they developed an interactive music video for the national ad campaign and were honored with a golden Effie Award in 2014. Niels is not only responsible for the duo’s musical output, but also produces and directs all of their music videos himself. Nominations for a VIVA COMET and an ECHO award for Best Video, as well as the jury award for Best Video at Frankfurt Music Fair (expert music award) are part of his success story as a producer and director. In 2014, Niels worked on the production team of an online TV channel named ‘Zuio.tv’, which was founded by German TV legend Frank Elstner and his son Thomas Elstner in cooperation with Axel Springer SE in Berlin. Niels Reinhard is currently working on different musical and audio-visual projects including an upcoming fictional series about DJing and electronic music. He is based in the heart of Berlin, Germany.
