Working freelance in large advertising agencies and production companies Uli Pförtner gained technical and creative experience in all genres: Feature film, image and advertising films, animation and documentaries.
He continued as author (‚Das Haus - Poesie des Verfalls') initially for ARD (hr, mdr, wdr) and ZDF. Wildlife and nature form a focus point – although not the only one - in the works of the author and director. He made significant contributions for the first (and for a long time only) regional nature series in German TV, ‚Service:Natur' (hr). Numerous films and documentaries emerged also for WDR (‚Heimisches Wild - Tiere ohne Lobby', ‚Brücken zur Welt'). With his GILDE - film & tv produktion, Braunfels" the author and director is time and again his own camera man and producer.
