About me

I’m a sto­ry­teller and social entre­pre­neur from Berlin, Ger­many, father of 2 chil­dren, play sev­eral instru­ments, see the future with my tarot deck, love vegan cook­ing. I am Arya in the Game of Thrones quiz and usu­ally switch between ENFP and INFP depend­ing on the 4 sea­sons. I can ana­lyze dreams and make myself invis­i­ble in a crowded place, and I like magic rit­u­als, read­ing minds, dis­cussing pol­i­tics and social issues.

Short biog­ra­phy (offi­cial)

Daniel Boehme - storyteller & social entrepreneur
Daniel Boehme - sto­ry­teller & social entre­pre­neur

At age 15, I founded my first band, being 16 I directed my own dance group as a chore­o­g­ra­pher and during my school­days I started work­ing as a graphic designer for bands and the polit­i­cal under­ground.
After my years of travel I played in 4 more bands which even­tu­ally lead me to com­pos­ing film scores and writ­ing screen­plays. In the mean­time I had to earn my pocket money as a web designer and gained some acting expe­ri­ence in two drama groups. 
My first direct­ing I real­ized in 2002 with ‚paradogma’ - and this expe­ri­ence con­vinced me to found my very own inde­pen­dent pro­duc­tion com­pany ‚soda.film berlin’.

Since then I have been work­ing as a free­lance direc­tor, editor and pro­ducer of music videos, short films and social spots. Check out my fil­mog­ra­phy for some exam­ples!

I always try to con­nect my 2 sides - cre­ativ­ity and logic. A good exam­ple is the phi­los­o­phy of my film com­pany soda.film. And I have won fame as a game modder. (Mod­ders design and code ‚mods’, changes or addi­tions to com­puter games.) To me, mod­ding is the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of cre­ativ­ity and logic. And this explains my affin­ity to user con­trolled story telling, user gen­er­ated con­tent, com­mu­nity build­ing, etc... (for details see ‚I’m a sto­ry­teller’)
