About Me

CURRENT MISSION

KOSHERLAND

ABOUT ME

Well, my name is Pyotr Magnus (but my friends call me also anything from "Petre", "Ruso" to "Pedro") "Mag" was the newest variety of my name. First used by my friend Devin and Elise´s boyfriend Tim from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Anyways, I am a Moldavian with an Austrian passport. Most of the last ten years I´ve been living in Vienna, but I also lived in Bucharest, worked as a barkeeper in a Swiss village called Beckenried, studied in Moscow, worked in a hotel in Flanders, studied in Paris and in Montreal, where I have been working on my thesis on Québécois and Irish Cinema. Then Film Academy in Cologne, excavations and some other things. I am now living in Berlin and working on a new exciting project, the black comedy "KOSHERLAND" .

Just before that I was busy writing a novel called "SUGAR LIFE" , which came out end of february 2013. But now I am fully focused on the "KOSHERLAND" project;) Other than that I would like to mention my avid interest in "medieval swordfighting". My professional ambition however is to direct movies. After studying a couple of dead celtic languages and digging up a bunch of iron period relics it seemed like the next best fun thing to do for me...;) Another thing I´ve been doing quite a lot is traveling.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is good, but good life is better!
