The King of Extras
Filmfest 2008

Wolfgang Maier is Germany's most enthusiastic film extra and autograph hunter. The man has participated in more than a thousand TV and movie productions and always has himself photographed with the stars and filmmakers. His collection of photographs fills over 400 photo albums and is like a time travel voyage through German and particularly Munich film history. The Stadtmuseum, Munich's city museum, showed many of the photographs in an exhibition entitled 'Mr. Maier and the Stars' on the occasion of Filmfest München 25th anniversary in 2007.
