Shawn Bu began his studies in Communications Design in Germany already with a great passion for films and filmmaking since his childhood. Coming from a background of amateur filmmaking since school, when he got his first own Mini-DV Camera, Shawn pursued his goal in making movies by directing his own works and doing the work of the director of photography with every opportunity that presented itself to him.
He started working on short films and music videos as a director and cinematographer. Visual Effects, compositing and editing were also part of his interest from early on. He produced and directed the Star Wars Fan-Film “Darth Maul: Apprentice” which went viral in 2016, currently counting over 13 Million views. He recently started his own film company “Raw Mind Pictures” with his brother and his colleague. Until now Shawn Bu was involved in over 70 productions.
