Manes is a director with a talent for elevating the efforts and
performances of the human body to an elemental scale.
The emotions he transcribes to physical endeavour are
demonstrated in the quiet intensity of his films.
After he studied at the Film Academy Vienna, Manes has been
in constant demand as a director since he has made the
transition to commercials. He is naturally drawn to projects
with a sports/action element, a genre to which his style of
visual storytelling is perfectly suited.
