MARTIN SCHREIER, born in 1980 in Kronberg im Taunus, made his first short films while still in primary school. From 2005 to 2006, he studied at the German Film School in Berlin. Afterwards, he studied feature film directing at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. In 2009, he completed the Hollywood Masterclass at UCLA in Los Angeles as part of a scholarship and realized a series of award-winning short films. The following year, he was the first scholarship holder of the Germany Scholarship at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. His approximately 35-minute film THE NIGHT FATHER CHRISTMAS DIED (2010), about three very different people whose paths cross on Christmas Eve with partly tragic consequences, was nominated for the Student Academy Award in 2010. The same year, he received the Pro7/Sat.1- Primetime Award for the idea for the thriller ROBIN HOOD. In 2012, he realized ROBIN HOOD as his graduation film. The thriller about a policeman who robs the branches of a corrupt bank and distributes the loot to the needy was premiered as the opening film of the Max-Ophüls-Film Festival. His second feature film as a director was OUR TIME IS NOW (2016) for Warner Bros.: a genre mix of film biography, docudrama, and comedy about Rap Superstar Cro, featuring, among others, Til Schweiger, who also served as a producer together with his partner Tom Zickler († 2019). His third feature film was DREAM FACTORY, which Martin developed and directed again for the legendary producer Tom Zickler. The film was the first in-house production of Studio Babelsberg in a quarter of a century. The studio is the oldest film studio in the world. DREAM FACTORY opened various international film festivals in 2019 and 2020 and was released worldwide in cinemas, including in USA , UK, China, Taiwan, Russia, Italy, and many other countries. Since 2021, Martin has realized several projects for Amazon Studios, including the first German film for Prime Video ONE NIGHT OFF.
