Franz founded his solo studio in 2008, focussing on multi-channel storytelling projects and beyond. And although he loves doing things on his own, nothing is ever alone. Over the years he has been building a network of sport, culture, technology, design that is as individual as it is beautifully intertwined.
Today, Franz focuses on his personal body of work and commissions ranging from editorial to advertising, from documentary to conceptual assignments. His visual language and narratives bear the stamp of a surreal poetic beauty, subtle art direction and carefully framed compositions. His works have received numerous awards and international recognition.

Adventure is a state of mind
I have an overall interest in so many things as it fuels me. It is a nourishing ground. I want to be able to understand and to feel a space.
I am passionate about uniting the physical and the digital to find new ways of communicating stories and experiences, to model narratives across media genres. I try to connect, not to break things, to make may work well crafted and sustainable.
The current version of my website was first published in late December 2020 and is in an ongoing redesign. The simple idea is to make it a shared repository of selected works, thoughts, ideas. Meanwhile, head over to tagedraussen-film.at which showcases my most recent film project.
