Claudio Fäh recently completed directing the seventh installment of the “Sniper” franchise for Sony’s Stage 6 Films and Mandalay Pictures Sniper: Ultimate Kill. This marks Fäh’s return to the popular series as a director after Sniper: Reloaded which he directed in 2011. The movie was shot in Bogota, Colombia, and is starring Chad Michael Collins, Danay Garcia (Fear the Walking Dead) and reunites the cast of the original movie, Tom Berenger and Billy Zane.
Fäh’s WW2 thriller Beyond Valkyrie – Dawn of the Fourth Reich, also for Sony’s Stage 6 Films, was released in theaters in the US in July 2016 followed by a worldwide rollout through Sony and Starz. The movie stars Sean Patrick Flanery, Kip Pardue, Eric Ladin, Stephen Lang and Rutger Hauer.
His previous film Northmen – A Viking Saga was released in theaters in the US by Anchor Bay/Starz in 2015, ranking in the top ten best sellers on the home entertainment market. The action adventure, starring Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Ed Skrein (Deadpool) and Tom Hopper (Black Sails) had a wide theatrical release in Europe in the fall of 2014.
Before Northmen, Fäh directed and produced a number of movies for Sony’s Stage 6 Films (Hollow Man 2, Sniper: Reloaded, Starship Troopers: Marauder) earning two nominations for a Saturn Award. He also produced legendary director Joe Dante’s film The Hole, starring Haley Bennett, Nathan Gamble, Teri Polo and Bruce Dern. The movie won the award for best 3D movie at the Venice International Film Festival and was in the official selection of the Toronto International Film Festival.
For CBS and Sander/Moses Productions Fäh directed the award-winning original web series Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side, a scripted online companion series to CBS’s Ghost Whisperer. The web series was the winner of the TV Guide Online Award for ‘Best Online TV Drama’. CBS quickly followed up with a second season, also directed by Fäh.
Prior to his feature career, Fäh directed several short films for which he was awarded numerous international awards. For his commercial work, he was awarded with the EDI for best commercial director in his native Switzerland.
Upcoming directing projects include Acolyte, written by Derek Kolstad (John Wick), The Crimson Prophecy for Ascot/Elite and Fake with C-Films in Zürich.
