Hendrik Faller is Head of film at the creative agency TCO London. He cut his teeth as an editor, working for clients such as Netflix, Adidas and Vice and has since moved into directing commercials and documentaries for Gore-Tex, Channel 4, Reebok and Huck magazine.
Hendrik's initial interest in film was in long form fiction. He made his first feature MOUNTAIN FEVER in 2017. A micro-budget thriller, it premiered in the young film-makers category at renowned genre festival FrightFest and later found distribution on Sky Cinema in the UK. That same year Hendrik took part in a workshop with German film-maker Werner Herzog, were he was inspired to continue making films in the documentary genre.
Hendrik sees his first feature documentary DOGS ARE PEOPLE TOO as an opportunity to reach millions of dog-lovers and make them think about their pets in a completely different way, hoping that it will make us all question our relationship with animals and what it says about us.
