ROLAND EMMERICH (Director, Producer, Screenplay, Story) directed and executive-produced the historical epic "The Patriot,” starring Mel Gibson. He directed and executive-produced "Godzilla” and "Independence Day,” and co-wrote both films with producer Dean Devlin. Emmerich also directed and co-wrote 1994's science-fiction adventure "Stargate” with Devlin, the film's producer. Emmerich's first American film was the 1992 action adventure hit "Universal Soldier,” starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. He also produced "Eight Legged Freaks” and "The Thirteenth Floor.”

Emmerich began his career in his native Germany. As a youth, he pursued painting and sculpting and studied production design in film school in Munich. His student film "The Noah's Ark Principle,” which opened the 1984 Berlin Film Festival, became a success and was sold to more than 20 countries.

Emmerich subsequently formed his own production company, Centropolis Film Productions, and under its aegis produced "Making Contact” (a.k.a. "Joey”), which showcased the young filmmaker's vast knowledge of special effects; and "Ghost Chase,” a comedy he co-wrote with Oliver Eberle. Emmerich went on to direct the action-adventure "Moon 44,” which he co-wrote with Eberle and which starred Malcolm McDowell, Michael Pare, Lisa Eichhorn and Dean Devlin.
