The Studio

In 2008 he founded Studio Franz Walter, focussing on multi-channel storytelling projects and beyond. He does not keep a full-time staff. Instead, he uses what he joyfully calls: “The madebynomads Model”

The madebynomads Model

When filmmakers make films, they pick the people who best embody each role. Similarly, madebynomads chooses the best person for each for work ahead. Yes, some projects need true specialists. Franz believes in these creative collaborations and meaningful partnerships. Since 2014 his fellow nomads and himself have been forming this creative collective, a network of sport, culture, technology, design that is as individual as it is beautifully intertwined. Say hi!
