His work has been recognized with numerous awards, such as the Clios, the D&ADs, Loeries, and he was even nominated as one of the top Young Directors at Cannes in 2012. 
 
Brian Smego, executive producer at The Mill in Chicago, said of von Berg, “He’s a truly versatile filmmaker. He excels at visual storytelling and creating emotive content. Combining his skillset with our design and animation teams allows us to expand our creative palette for both film and experience-based projects.”
