Andreas Dermanis: Biography

Andreas Dermanis is a self-shooting film-maker based between London and Athens, experienced in directing, editing and delivering content. With an initial grounding in entertainment television, he moved towards human story focussed content, creating a number of films in Greece and the Balkans. His work has been commissioned and broadcast by a number of channels including ANT1, BBC, C4, MTV, The Royal Academy of Arts and Vice. Musical performances and documentaries directed for artists include Asap Rocky, Bastille, Carly Rae Jepsen, Emeli Sande, The Kooks, Labrinth, Mika and The Shins.

Premiered through Greek channel ANT1 in June, Andreas released his first feature documentary 'Andi'. The film was shot in Greece and Albania and discusses the theme of national identity through the eyes of the actor Nikos Gelia who was part of a generation of Albanians that due to internal conflict, found themselves migrating elsewhere to start new lives. 'Andi' was chosen for offcial selection at Tirana International Film Festival under it's 'Reflecting Albania' section. 'Andi' forms part of a wider plan to specialise in content across the Balkan region.

Andreas next feature documentary 'Colours' is currently in pre-production.
