YDA winner Eugen hails from Moldova, moving to Germany when he was 5. As a kid he had a fascination for filmmaking, finding his feet using his parents dv camera and shooting action flicks with his buddies.
In his 20’s he attended the prestigious Filmakademie Baden-Wurttemberg in Stuttgart, cutting his teeth making short films and spec commercials. He has a love for the unusual and absurd, particularly small town America, where his recent, YDA winning short ‘The Boy Who Couldn’t Feel Pain’ was set.
Eugen’s films position him perfectly within the Academy roster of talent, with creative, emotionally charged and highly cinematic work crafted to an exceptionally high standard.
