|Born||1970 (age 49–50)|
|Education||Berlin’s German Film and Television Academy|
Hoffmeister graduated from high school in 1989 and got his first job as an intern electrician on a film production. He studied directing and cinematography at Berlin's German Film and Television Academy. His first film, 3 Degrees Colder won him a Silver Leopard for Best First Feature Film at the Locarno International Film Festival. A major breakthrough would come in 2011 when he served as the primary cinematographer on the British television mini-series Great Expectations, winning him an Emmy, a BAFTA, and the ASC award. He was listed by Variety in its "10 Cinematographers to Watch" list.
In 2016, he directed The Have-Nots, a film based on the novel by Katharina Hacker. The film is notably in black and white, which Hoffmeister explained as a strategy to "change how the audience in the theatres would view reality and whether the film would strike an emotional impact on them".
