Director, DoP and Cameraman Jens Hoffmann, was born and raised in the Black Forest, Germany. A long-time professional athlete (skiing), he had his first experience in working with 16mm film in 1993, while studying Communications and Journalism. As a producer in sports television since 1993, he went on to specialize in alternative sports and later in motor sports, including two years working as a producer on the Formula 1 circuit for digital television.
A stint as co-director and producer for the German broadcast station RTL and BOGNER-Film was ultimately followed by an IMAX film in 1998.
In the 90s he developed his own style for directing and camera-work, primarily in the field of lifestyle and underground films.
Since 2000 Hoffmann has been working as a commercial director. He founded F24 Film, his own production company, in the same year. F24 has built a reputation for high quality corporate movies. In recent years, his work has been more focused on documentaries. Nevertheless, the majority of his recent commercial work has received several awards:
The corporate movie „characters“, produced in 2005 for the Tourist Board of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, won First Prize at the Film Awards of the International Tourism Fair (ITB) in Berlin
The 2006 production of the official presentation of Garmisch-Partenkirchen as the host of the 2011 FIS Alpine Skiing World Championships was a key part of the winning presentation of the organizational comitte.
