biography

Roland Leyer has always been someone who wants to experience life: tackling, creating, and bringing to completion. He loves dealing with people and making them reach their limits, either as managing director of the DVAG or as an event organizer of extreme travelling. He thoroughly learned what limits are while working as a seasoned stuntman. Very early in his life, he discovered his passion for films. While his first films were meant to be a motivation for his employees or advertisements for his travels and bike shows, this would soon change when he got started in the film industry as a stuntman. These various perspectives and tasks in the action area lead to working for ten years as a director for the most well-known German TV series. Due to this practical experience, he learned quickly how to work in an effective and problem-solving way, while still always reaching for the stars. Dealing with spiritual chasms, human longings and hope is his passion and trademark.
