ABOUT the filmmaker

Dirk Behlau, aka „The Pixeleye“, born in 1971, is an internationally acclaimed Designer, Filmmaker, Creative Director and Photographer from Bonn/Germany. 

Since 1999 Dirk Behlau is creating individual high-class projects for international clients in his design-studios „Pixeleye Industries“ and movie department "Beastwood Films". Squeezed Up is his second documentary film after the highly acclaimed Kustom Kulture Flake & Flames.

"The Pixeleye is a more than suitable name for Dirk to brand his company. Hell, it IS Dirk. He's got this magical ability to frame the shot in his head before he even starts work. The picture is taken long before he ever holds the camera up. The camera is nothing but a tool to capture what he sees in his head - you only need to be in his company for five minutes to figure out that this is what he's doing. While that might also be true of most professional photographers twenty years ago, it’s certainly not normal anymore. In an era when you can rattle off thousands of shots and hope for the best, working Dirk's way is an art form in itself." Sion Smith, Author
