Executive Producer and Co-Founder
Bernhard began to work in the powerful medium of film in order to send out meaningful messages – additionally, he likes a challenge. So why not start a film production company!?
After his master’s degree in Multi Media Art, he co-founded Wildruf Film in 2008 and has produced numerous commercial and non-commercial projects since then. The works range from awareness spots to elaborate music videos and amusing corporates. A great landmark in his career was the production of Wildruf’s first feature film, the documentary D.U.D.A! Werner Pirchner released in 2014.
Although running a business and producing films demands a lot of time, he also likes to edit certain projects like the short documentary Purity. Bernhard is looking forward to produce Wildruf’s next feature film projects. He currently lives with his family in Hall in Tyrol.
Katrin studied Comparative Literature in Innsbruck and after finishing her degree, started her career in theatre.

Since then, she produced and directed various plays and organised cultural initiatives like the ´freies Theaterfestival innsbruck`, ´stummer schrei` and the ´Innsbruck Film Campus`.

Industrial Designer, 3D Generalist and Co-Founder
Tobias studied Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. After gaining experience with personal works, Tobias co-founded Wildruf to establish a collaborative environment for passionate projects with his friends.
In cooperation with Labvert, he started to work as a designer for brands like Dior, Giorgio Armani, Viktor & Rolf and Hennessy where he established realistic CG visualisations with a high degree of detail, atmospheric quality and material authenticity to validate projects before they are actually built in real life.
Tobias understands this work as the transformation of ideas into a physical language. Working with generative 3D processing programs and prototyping tools, his intension is to create new geometries and design methods. With a playful and artistic approach, he always tries to push the limits of what’s imaginable and to find new ways of creative processes. In this sense, music is one of Tobias essential passions. He works with several sound generating tools, like modular synths, as well as experimenting with field recordings and analogue instruments.

In 2012, he met Malte Ludin in Berlin and they decided to work on a documentary about the genius Tyrolean composer and musician Werner Pirchner. Shooting the film in 2013 as cinematographer was a great experience he would never trade.
Since 2014 he has been concentrating on story development together with associated directors and is currently writing his first feature-length screenplay named „Flucht nach Hause“.
Driven by an early fascination to entertain people, Tobias discovered that neither performing in a band nor doing shows on motorcycles was as exciting as film making.
A commitment to portray realistic settings juxtaposed with
joy-filled cinematic moments is a defining part of his visual language, as it can be seen in his music video for Ghosts.
Amongst others, he has done commercial work for Sony Music,
Red Bull, BMW, Ultra Music, Sparkasse and Swarovski for which he has been awarded nationally and internationally.
Tobias is currently editing two personal short films shot in Bangladesh, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Johannes is a full-time musician and media composer, who is familiar with the full range of the classical orchestra.
His sound can be described as a crossover between electronics and traditional score and is therefore very flexible in its use. The range of his work leads from commercials, all the way to big cinematic score writing. Anything between uplifting cues, like his track for Adler Farben, or dramatic orchestral sounds for Swarovski is conceivable.
The perfect match to Johannes‘ concept is his freshly founded Vienna Soundtrack Band, which is a carefully arranged Band consisting of piano, drums, bass, two violins and solo voice.
