Esther Niemeier

Born in Germany, Esther Niemeier spent her school years between Europe and New York. After graduating school in Germany she spent some time working in Edinburgh and from there, moved down
to London to attend an art foundation course at Camberwell College of Arts, which was her first step to a future in the film industry.

The recent University of the Arts graduate has been living in London for the past five years and at the moment is in Los Angeles in development of her next film. Esther’s first encounter and incidentally
the idea for ‘Walz’, happened at the age of two when a couple of journeymen made a stop at her house.
