Constantin Maier, born in 1991, is a screenwriter and director from Germany. He started filmmaking at the early age of twelve, creating an animated cartoon with friends after school which took two years to complete. He continued to explore the world of filmmaking, making many shorts.
Eventually, Constantin studied Media Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hanover where he finished his first feature film An Evening of Eternity. The film received state funding from Nordmedia and went on to win awards at festivals across the world. His short film Anywhere, among other things, was aired nationwide on NDR (Northern German Broadcasting).
In 2016, Constantin was selected for the 6 Miles screenwriting program of the up-and-coming International Film Festival where he wrote the story of his next feature Argument for the Existence of the Island Saudadia, which is currently in development. The script won "Best Original Action Adventure Screenplay" at the Richmond International Film Festival 2019 and was selected as a finalist at ÉCU - The European Independent Film Festival 2019 (top 3 scripts).
In addition to writing and directing, Constantin works in post-production. He edited the short film True that aired on MDR (Central German Broadcasting). In visual effects, he worked as the lead artist on the 2nd season of 4 Blocks, directed by Oscar-nominated Oliver Hirschbiegel, and served as an artist for renowned directors like Oscar-winning Stefan Ruzowitzky and Oscar-nominated Uli Edel.
Inspired by his years of experience as a visual effects artist, Constantin spent his time during the Corona lockdown developing a plugin called Workflower for the visual effects and motion graphics software Adobe After Effects. Customers of his plugin include tv broadcasters like CBS or game developers like Ubisoft and Blizzard Entertainment.
In 2022, Constantin established his film company Unseen Color Productions UG which seeks to produce feature films and create visual effects.
