Urbanfilm's vision has existed since 1999. While Christoph Urban was producing music videos for Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher (DoRo) in Berlin at that time, the idea arose that a creative production company has to be brought to the Ruhr area. And this is how it ultimately happened: Christoph Urban founded URBANFILM media production in May of 2012 in the heart of the Ruhr area, in his hometown Recklinghausen. The former Koenig Ludwig 4/5 Nord colliery in the Suderwich district has served as our production site since the summer of 2013.
Urbanfilm has been operating as a Ltd since the beginning of 2015, whose partner and managing director is Christoph Urban.

In 1998 Christoph Urban discovered his great passion for professional media productions.
Driven by a strong-beating musician's heart, he starts his career as a film producer right from his home recording studio.

Since then he has been producing music videos with artists such as Herbert Grönemeyer, Melanie Thornton, John Cleese, Stefan Stoppok or Udo Lindenberg, as well as advertising campaigns with prominent faces such as Verona Pooth, Daniela Katzenberger, Janine Kunze, Mickie Krause, Ralf Richter, Atze Schröder, Inka Bause and Jürgen Klopp. Due to his excellent knowledge of the industry and years of professional experience in advertising agencies, he and his team are a competent partner for customers in all industries when it comes to the implementation of advertising and media productions. He never gave up to live out his passion for music so he also creates advertising jingles and film music.
