Director • Angelika Howland
You will be able to fall back on me as a director or indeed the whole production crew. We offer conception, project management, content- and lichtdesign, technical- and broadcast planning. Right from the planning phase, I always like to keep the implementation vision in my mind. The more detailed the coordination of the individual disciplines, the more effective the production. That is why I place so much value on my close cooperation with other specialists.
HOWLAND DIRECTORS – the sum of our experience for your production.
Immediately after completing secondary school I started studying performing arts: stage musicals at the Stage School of Dance and Drama in Hamburg. Then at the “Die Etage” drama school Berlin – a multidisciplinary school.
I was trained in stage arts of all kinds: mime, drama, dance, classical and modern, singing and acrobatics. The curriculum also included designing and staging my own play. Every quarter there was a practical interim examination. And I had the great fortune to study the high art of comedy – under no less than Philippe Gaulier in London and Paris.
After I completed my training in 1991, my work led me to Spain and Greece as a show designer for the Robinson Club. I was a comedian at Pomp Duck and Circumstance in Munich.
I hosted my own show in Berlin, burst out of cakes singing, and played a lawyer in various German early evening series. In 1997, I went to San Francisco to become a concept designer for the Floating Company. Project: German Pavilion, Expo 2000. Splash Film in Los Angeles, an offshoot of the branded movie from Hamburg, then engaged me as a director and actress for music clips. One project: Sonic Empire “Members of Mayday”.
In 2003, I handled the artistic direction and production direction for the “Artists against Aids” gala in the Theater des Westens. This wonderful theatre with all its totally committed and heartfelt crew was at my disposal for seven years. This gave me a fantastic opportunity to direct many great artists right up to 2009. Since then, I have been working exclusively as a director and media trainer.
