While still a student at the Film Academy in Vienna, Ron Eichhorn directed commercials, made an award winning music video for the „Bingo Boys“, and worked on a weekly TV-Show for the austrian channel ORF. After graduating Eichhorn turned to movies, directing his first feature-length project, the acclaimed ZDF comedy „Amerika“, as well as a number of commercials.
In 1999, he consolidated on his earlier success with another ZDF movie, „The Return of the black Buddha“, based on his own script and shot almost entirely in China.
Shortly afterwards, Eichhorn earned further recognition for a succession of award-winning commercials; including ads for Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Deutsche Telekom. His ardent ambition remains to further his career as a feature film director.
Ron Eichhorn lives in Vienna and Berlin.
