RUPERT
HÖLLER

 

 

After starting with weird videos in the golden age of Youtube at age 14 involving rubber bands and pudding (don’t ask), Rupert Höller now directs
multi award-winning music videos and commercials, somewhere between comedy and surrealism, based between Vienna, Berlin and London.
His work won an UKMVA Newcomer Award, Silver at 1.4 Awards, Berlin Music Video Award, Austrian Music Video Award
and has been selected at Raindance, Berlincommercial, Aesthetica Film Festival, Vimeo Staff Pick and Nowness.
He is one of a few directors to have been selected with two music videos in the same year at Camerimage Festival.
Apart from all that, he likes minimalistic photography and baking cinnamon rolls. If you ask nicely, he’ll bring one the next time you see him.
