Uwe Boll is certainly a larger than life character. An intelligent, tough individual who dares to challenge the system at all levels. He is a true film maverick. Dr. Boll studied film directing at HFF in Munich, Germany and the University for Music and Acting in Vienna, Austria. He also pursued German Literature and Economics at the Universities of Cologne and Siegen, Germany and by 1995 Uwe obtained his doctorate in German Literature. He became the Chief Executive of BOLU Film Production and Distribution, Schweinfurt, Germany and BOLL KG, Burscheid, Germany in 1992. By 1995 Uwe began working with Taunus Film-Production GmbH, Wiesbaden, Germany as a producer and director.He embarked upon his directing career, completing over 15 feature films. In 2005, Uwe directed BLOODRAYNE in Romania and IN THE NAME OF KING: A DUNGEON SIEGE TALE, in Vancouver, BC. The Bloodrayne cast included Sir Ben Kingsley (Gandhi) and Kristanna Loken (Terminator III). During the production of Bloodrayne, Uwe rescued and adopted his second dog. Uwe has a great love for animals and actively works with special interest groups for animal welfare. The passionate jogger and workaholic presently splits his time between Vancouver, Canada and Germany.In 2006 Dr. Boll finished shooting a horror film called SEED. This film features some of the most extreme violence ever explored in cinema. Following SEED, Uwe embarked on a film version of the computer game, POSTAL. This entertaining black satire effectively challenges the rules of political correctness. Uwe has even decided to incorporate and satirize himself in the film, personifying his reputation as a highly criticized and controversial director. Uwe ended 2006 directing his Vampire meets the Old Wild West feature, BloodRayne II: Deliverance, which stars Natassia Malthe & Zack Ward.
