- Tim Wessling and Arne Hörmann
Tim Wessling and Arne Hörmann are passionate filmmakers and travellers. Together they founded the platform 60seconds.travel in 2016. Their idea: to make endless google searches for travel destinations and their highlights obsolete. Arne’s and Tim’s videos give their audience a feeling for a country, a city or a region – in just 60 seconds.
Their videos are authentic, humorous and compelling so it’s no surprise that 60seconds.travel has quickly gained a large worldwide fanbase and now reaches millions of curious travellers via their social media channels. In addition to 60-second portraits of destinations such as South Africa, Kenya, Bali, Patagonia and Nepal, they also produce stunning mood films and “Behind the Scenes” episodes of their journeys.
Tim and Arne have also made it into television with their innovative approach to making informative films. In the popular knowledge magazine GALILEO on ProSieben (German TV channel) they are responsible for the “100 seconds” section and humorously explain crazy traditions around the globe or internet phenomena. Elaborately produced corporate image films are also part of their portfolio. Their clients include large companies such as Viking Cruises and Manitowoc.
Arne Hörmann studied communication science and has been an editor and dubbing actor for many years. Tim Wessling is a freelance filmmaker, editor and travel journalist.
