YDA JURY 2020: Andrea Roman-Perse

Andrea Roman-Perse
Managing Director/Partner
Zauberberg Productions
Berlin, Germany

After studying in Berlin, Andrea moved to Prague and got into production, eventually starting up her own company there.

Once back in Berlin she worked as a freelance producer, shooting all over the planet. And, 20 years ago, she joined BIGFISH, becoming Managing Partner. In 2018 Andrea founded Zauberberg Productions.

Central to the company’s identity & mission is its group of experienced, fun producers AND a treasure box of the most highly-awarded national and international directors working today in both Germany & around the world.

Andrea has produced many award-winning commercials, amongst them: a Golden Cannes Lion (and 20 other diverse lions), One Show, D&AD Pencil, British Arrow, Grand Prix at the ADC Germany...

Aside from the Masters Degree in Slavic Literature, which, for reasons unknown, happened along the way, Andrea loves humour, stories and film – ideally in combination.
