RJ Sauer is a writer, director, producer for commercial and film. His passion is creative exploration through storytelling whether on camera or outdoor adventure in his backyard and abroad.
He founded the boutique production company Brüdder fifteen years ago and since then has conceptualized and produced a wide variety of commercial and dramatic content for regional, national and international companies and agencies.
He has worked and traveled extensively in rugged and remote locations around the world with an affinity for the mystical qualities of the north including multiple film trips to the Arctic in both summer and winter.
This passion for new and isolated places extends to his personal exploration. In 2014 he completed the “ITI”, a 1000 mile adventure race along the historical Iditarod Trail, in 16 days on fat bike in the dead of winter. RJ plans to return this winter to challenge the course again.
In the Summer of 2016 he rafted the Tatshenshini River over twelve days from the Yukon to Alaska; bikepacked across Iceland for a month and competed in the Highland 550, a gruelling, self-supported bikepacking race through 550 miles of rugged Scottish terrain to finish in just under 6 days
RJ is currently developing several feature film projects alongside his outdoor adventures and commercial direction.
