About Animals

Animals love ramen noodles.
Like, deep, heartfelt love ramen noodles.
So much so that they want their bio to begin with how much they love this brothy, moorish, wholesome comfort food.

Right. Now that’s out of the way.

Animals are a directing duo made up of David Bertschinger Karg and Tobias Bonfanti, who split their time between London and Zurich. Both completely self taught, the duo made snowboarding films growing up together (David even snowboarded professionally after school.) This then led to small commercial jobs which then led to founding their own production company in Zurich. A snowball effect some might say.

True to their snowboarding roots, Animals’ work is visceral, high octane and at times intensely immersive. Think traversing down mountains or wrapped in the swell of a riptide immersive. They strive for absolute sensory realism, with an emphasis on the sonic experience of their films as much as the visual imagery. The result is breathtakingly cinematic.

As a duo, they’re well versed in collaboration, believing this to be essential to their filmmaking. Tobias’ excitement for big, vibrant imagery is beautifully balanced by David’s desire for subtle, fun, authentic performances. Self proclaimed calculated risk takers, they believe great work happens outside of comfort zones, when forced to improvise and run on instincts.

When they’re not filmmaking the duo like to surf, snowboard, climb and generally push themselves physically. Oh, and gorge on ramen. Obviously.
