CV Kay Kienzler

Kay was born in the early 80s and grew up in Frankfurt. After studying at Victoria University in Wellington / New Zealand (supported by a DAAD scholarship) and working as a Production Assistant on KING KONG at WETA DIGITAL, he enrolled at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. In 2013 he successfully graduated with a diploma in COMMERCIAL DIRECTING. He participated in the Hollywood Workshop 2011 at UCLA in Los Angeles, supported by the Baden-Württemberg scholarship.

His short films (f.i. in co-production with ARTE and SWR) and student commercials were successfully screened on many festivals.

Kay loves storytelling in all formats, but admits, that commercial directing is the best job in the world! He currently lives in Berlin, where he is working hard to insert his humor, quirky visual style and his focus on interesting characters into his films.
