Biography
He joined his first theater group at the age of 16. He put on a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at his school and began studying to become an actor at the Otto Falckenberg School in Munich shortly after completing his A-levels. Employment at Munich’s Kammerspiele theater followed his studies; he also appeared in his first short films and ultimately his first feature-length film, Absolute Giants, produced by Tom Tykwer and X-Filme, for which he also wrote the screenplay. Since Schipper played one of the principal roles in Tykwer's film 3, he has had a steady stream of roles. Currently in production is the thriller God of Rage, an international project produced by Tom Tykwer.

Open Horizons

Victoria / Sebastian Schipper

Victoria, a young woman from Madrid, meets four young men from Berlin outside a club. Sonne and his gang have got themselves into hot water and Victoria ends up as their driver. But what starts as a big, crazy adventure quickly turns into a nightmare. At the crack of dawn, Victoria and Sonne suddenly realize: it’s all or nothing... A journey to the end of the night – breathless, captivating, romantic. A film about youth that always wants more. About a crazy love at first sight. About the wild heartbeat of the big city.
