loves music and film. Besides his passion for pop music from the Upper Palatinate and the whole world, he is a permanent guest in cinemas – and has been since he could walk. At the same time, he has developed a penchant for the weird and sometimes even the offbeat. As a cameraman, Säm Wagner has already shot several music clips and short films that, for some inexplicable reason, never made it into film history. As a popular music representative of the district of Upper Palatinate, he takes care of funding opportunities for filmmakers and festival organizers.

Everything was great, but somehow she preferred to spend time in editorial offices and on film locations rather than in the library. Before 1e9, LEAD and W&V, the writer and media consultant wrote for WIRED Germany, among others. Cinema, pop and nerd culture are her favorite topics. Currently, the project manager at Oberpfalz Marketing shows via film and text how crazy great life in the Upper Palatinate can actually be. Quote: “The future is a state of mind.
