Dancing Squirrel - Going Nuts Since 2008

Martin Portrait

Dancing Squirrel is the online portfolio of writer, director and producer Martin Wallner.

In the last few years, Martin has won numerous national and international awards. His debut film "A Lost and Found Box of Human Sensation" screened in more than 150 film festivals around the globe, and according to the Federal Film Board (FFA) it was Germany's most successful short film in the given period. Since 2013 Martin teaches at the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg.

For his projects Martin collaborates with a variety of professionals from all fields of filmmaking, visual art and interactive media.

Initially, Dancing Squirrel was co-founded by Stefan Leuchtenberg during the production of "A Lost and Found Box of Human Sensation". Since then, Stefan has moved on to launch Ploosh, a studio for interactive media, and focuses now on creating high quality media for kids and families. However, we still like each other and collaborate frequently.
