Simon loves movies in which the picture conveys the jokes and is convinced that comedy and tragedy are inseparable and always occur together. His cinematic principle involves straight and laconic storytelling, both in fictional and in documentary works.

After valuable apprenticeship as an assistant for feature films and big budget commercials, he studied film direction at the Film University Babelsberg. His short films have been screened at more than 100 festivals worldwide and got awarded with the Max Ophüls Prize, the Studio Hamburg Young Talent Award, as well as a nomination for the German Short Film Award and the Shortlist for the BAFTA Awards.
