Hello! My name is David Arno Schwaiger. Storytelling is my passion and I firmly believe a powerful narrative can change our lives for the better.

For the past 20 years I have worked as a director, writer, editor, concept and vfx artist. From directing commercials and documentaries to editing TV series and feature films all the way to creating environments for Star Wars, I've approached the art of filmmaking holistically.

Until December 2022 I was a VFX Generalist at Industrial Light & Magic. Now I'm back in my hometown of Vienna and available for freelance projects. Currently I am working for Blur Studio.

Feel free to contact me via d@davidas.at or just follow me on Instagram and Artstation.

Happy trails!
