Wanna know where I come from? Watch my TEDx Talk


Johann Angermann believes that great ideas and concepts deserve a great video!  As a videographer he is cameraman, editor and producer all in one person. Videography is a powerful tool to reach people’s hearts and convey one’s ideals and beliefs. After finishing his diploma at the Bayerische Akademie für Fernsehen he is currently living and working in Munich.

With his project  Guts for Change he realized his first big multimedia Campaign in 2012 where he raised funds for a sanitation project in India und crowdfunded his first movie. The Campaign won the German Price for Business Communication and his films have been shown on ARTE  and on the German TV channel RTL amongst others.

Since 2015 Johann is a Crowdfunding Professional at Startnext and helps innovative Starters to run successful Campaigns. His niche as a Filmmaker has led him to work for NGOs and foundations such as Friedrich Ebert Stiftung,  Robert Bosch Stiftung and Joachim Herz Stiftung.

Johann started making videos while studying Media & Communication Science at the University of Passau. Together with Andreas Dobner he first produced  little Youtube Clips and then presented a youth magazine for local television TRP1. Consequently he gained experiences as presenter for Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, as  actor in music videos and short films for TV in Germany and Brazil, as producer for Brazilian documentary and as videographer for Joachim Herz Stiftung and other clients.

As member of Non Water Sanitation e.V. Johann has undertaken two adventurous journeys to India, one travelled by bicycle in 2012 and the other one hitchhiked in 2014. Both trips were part of campaigns to raise awareness for the global sanitation crisis and fundraising for sanitation projects in India. Johann documented the endeavors of the “Guts for Change” Team and produced two movies showing the process of these projects.

Johann believes that everybody has the power to change and make the world a bit better. With his videography he is glad to help spread the word!

Looking forward to hear about your ideas…
