Lu Traumann

 

If you’re looking for an Ivy-League-educated bootstrapper who almost missed the boat, you’ve come to the right page.

At 15, I told my diplomat parents that one day, I would go into show business.

They were not delighted, so I considered some alternatives. After studying Liberal Arts and Management at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, I mastered International Business at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. I then circumnavigated my destiny by researching social entrepreneurship, directing theatre, translating, organizing festivals, and opening a bar in Berlin.

When pursuing a PhD in education science left me with a screenplay, I knew I needed to turn things around. So, I did what any aspiring co-author would do and created a profile on a popular dating app. Looking for writers, male or female. In other words, I got serious. I wrote spec scripts, joined production company Magical Realist, assisted in the development of an English-language serial drama for Real Film Berlin, and recently graduated from HFF München’s Drehbuchwerkstatt 2020.

Lu writes and develops screenplays in German and English.
