Hey, I'm Linus!

Berlin,

Hey y'all. I'm a queer, HIV-positive filmmaker and actor. You can find me on television, waving guns and speaking in various European accents. At other times, you'll find me directing darkly comedic narrative content. And sometimes I make commercials, too.

Filmmaking is all about community building. I'm a proud member of Filmshop, and a loyal Seed&Spark user. I believe the more great art is out there, the better. Your success is my success, and vice versa!
