We love people and create film

We are Franklin, a directing duo founded in 2013. Together, we create commercials, but as solo artists, we also individually direct documentaries and narrative films.(If 60 seconds are not enough for you, check out Anni’s and Linda’s feature works). We collaborate with creatives from diverse backgrounds with differing world views, but the same common goal: to tell meaningful stories that connect people.

Anni Franke
born in 1993, speaks Khmer fluently and has a degree in Cultural Anthropology & South East Asian Studies. She is the research machine behind Franklin.

Linda-Shiva Klinkhammer
born in 1993, studied directing at University of Television and Film Munich. Loves choreography and aesthetics mixed with realism in film. She is the visual machine behind Franklin.
