Daniel Schulte was born in Plettenberg, Germany in 1997. After graduating from high school, he started studying theatre, film and media studies at the Goethe University in Frankfurt. Eventually, Daniel switched to the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences for a bachelor's degree in "Media: Conception & Production" in order to pursue his passion for film in a more practical way. In addition to acting in various musicals at the Hessian State Theatre Wiesbaden, Daniel developed his first own film projects during his studies. Projects include the concept and screenplay for the musical web series "Before Broadway" and the queer film drama "Rainbow Heart", which he wrote and directed. Daniel's short film "lonely nights" celebrated its cinema premiere in May 2022 at the Hanau youth short film festival "Jung & Abgedreht". "Abgespalten" is Daniel Schulte's bachelor's degree film and marks his first major directing project.
