By SmartBranding Team access_time 3 min read


Our guest today is Henning Schulze, film director and artist, founder of Paradise studio, where with his team, he’s producing edgy, authentic visuals for global brands like Adidas, Audi, Dior, Porsche, and others.

Meet our guest

Name: Henning Schulze

What they do: Henning is the mastermind behind Paradise Studio, a premier location for exceptional visual storytelling. Boasting a vast network of highly talented individuals, the studio is equipped to produce commercials of all calibres.

Fun fact: Henning lives on a boat (we’re not jealous!), and his neighbour’s Australian Shepherd dog became a part of our conversation at one point. Henning mentioned that the dog always barks at him when he comes down the stairs, and jokingly suggested that maybe the dog wants to communicate with him, but unfortunately, it doesn’t understand German. Expected! Should’ve got a German shepherd.

Where to reach them:


When it comes to branding, there are two key components to consider: the visual aspect, which encompasses design and corporate identity, and the emotional aspect, which involves the story and emotional connection the brand creates with its audience. A strong brand is not only visually pleasing but also evokes emotions that resonate with and connect to the audience. What’s the story you’re telling? What emotions do you want to convey with this brand, and how can you effectively communicate them? There is no age limit on starting something and achieving success.
