BEN&JULIA STUDIO 

«Welcome to Berlin's one of a kind Creative Kingdom»

We have always dreamed of creating a direct line between conceptualization, design production, shoot and post-production. 

A place that enables ideas and projects to be developed organically in one creative flow.

This is where we draw, paint, sculpt, mold, cast, shoot, edit, animate, continue designing, grade, record a voice-over, play music, shoot more and give shapes to ideas.
