Biography

Johannes Becht in the Valley of Fire, Nevada, USA.jpg

In the Valley of Fire, Nevada.

I am a German Independent Filmmaker, Actor, Director, Journalist and Digital Marketer.

I grew up in Pforzheim, Germany. I spent several years of my childhood and teenage years in Heidelberg and Koblenz.

At the age of 15, I started working as freelancer in the online department of the Pforzheimer Zeitung, a local daily newspaper. I continued working there as freelancer until 2019, while also contributing to the sports department.

 

At the age of 16, in November 2014, I published a music video called "Mein Bizeps brennt," which unintentionally ended up going viral on the internet, collecting over 100 millions of views across various platforms.

After completing high school, I conducted two internships before moving to Frankfurt to pursue a degree in American and English Studies at the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe University. During that time, I worked as copywriter for a local travel agency specializing on luxury vacations to South East Africa.

 

At the age of 21, I moved to Weatherford, Oklahoma, USA, to study Strategic Communication with a minor in Film Production at Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

 

During that time, I started working for The Southwestern, the student news site. I almost singlehandedly completed the already planned transition from print to online-only by designing a website and producing content during Covid-19 and started increasing campus-wide recognition and reach of the news site by taking over social media, writing articles, producing videos and taking care of SEO/SEM.

In summer 2022, I conducted an internship at The Lawton Constitution as multimedia reporter which lead to full-time and part-time employment in summer 2023 in fall 2023, respectively. I also currently build my own satire news website Morning News Tonight.

I am also contributing to several short films as actor, assistant director and audio/camera assistant. I also had roles as extras in professional feature film productions and I am currently working on my own short film Pallaton.
