Arne Feldhusen was born in 1971 in Rendsburg, Schleswig-Holstein. In the early 1990s, he began working in film as an editing assistant and director’s assistant, as well as a consultant for music use in commercials and television. In 1999, Feldhusen directed a documentary film called Straßenkinder in Deutschland (Street-Kids in Germany) and began directing short films and music videos. Stromberg (2014), a comedy, was his first feature film to be released in cinemas. In 2017, he directed Magical Mystery oder: Die Rückkehr des Karl Schmidt, based on the novel of the same name by musician and screenwriter Sven Regener. Since 2006, Feldhusen has also taught at the Hamburg Media School.
