Commercial Director & Cinematographer


Los Angeles based filmmaker, specializing in Tabletop, Food, and Stop-Motion


A glimpse at a few of the projects I've had the pleasure of working on!


Philipp Girke

I'm a Director / DP who thrives off

technical challenges and a hands-on

creative environment. 

My best work is yet to be crafted,

I’d love to collaborate along the way.

Process & TEchniQUE

Test shoots, pre-visualization, and all hands on deck.

Whether collaborating with a large crew or in the midst of a solo project, my approach to creating imagery and telling stories is inherently the same, revolving around meticulous planning and intuitive creativity.

Primarily focused on advertising, I’m drawn to the simplicity of short-form narratives. Ranging from the organic imperfections of stop-motion animation to the visceral appeal and nuanced subtlety of food and beverage, my process is defined by stories that elevate the ordinary or unassuming.

In orchestrating the delicate balance between the initial concept, physical production, post and finishing, my experience in cinematography, visual effects, and motion graphics provide a solid foundation to create consistently engaging work.
