Biography

Sebastian Schultz was born in Kiel in 1974. While working as an intern for a photographer, he developed a professional interest in film. From 1998 until 2000, he learned the ropes as an assistant editor at Werk Hamburg, and in 2000, he started to work as a freelance editor and director. He made commercials and music videos for acts like Rocko Schamoni and Blumfeld.

Schultz served as editor on the feature films "Die blaue Grenze" ("A Quiet Love", 2005) and "Das wilde Leben" ("8 Miles High", 2005-2007), and he has been editing for film and television since then. Schultz frequently collaborated with director Lars Jessen, for instance on "Dorfpunks" (2009), "Hochzeitspolka" (2010) and several episodes of the TV show "Mord mit Aussicht" (2012-2014).

Schultz and Jessen eventually co-wrote and co-directed the comedy "Fraktus" (2012). Schultz also worked on the script of Patrick Siegfried Zimmer's science-fiction film "Anhedonia" (2015). In 2015, Schultz and Jessen co-founded the production company Eichholz Film, and the following year, they teamed up with Klaas Heufer-Umlauf to found the production company Bird&Bird, which focuses on talent search and the development of new TV formats.

Under the banner of Eichholz Film, Schultz produced the award-winning TV movie "Jürgen - Heute wird gelebt" ("Lonely Knights", 2017, Director: Lars Jessen) and the documentary "Wildes Herz" (2014-2017), which he also co-directed with Charly Hübner. "Wildes Herz", a documentary about the East-German punk rock band Feine Sahne Fischfilet, went on to win several awards, including the DEFA-Förderpreis and the Dokumentarfilmpreis des Goethe-Instituts.
