I am a cinematographer and film maker. In the following I will explain in more detail why composing images with a camera is my passion.
Our ancestors already had the need to capture things in pictures. They transferred their stories as cave paintings onto the walls of their homes at that time. Nowadays we are constantly surrounded by images. Technological development has made it possible to give images motion. With these moving images, creative minds inspire us again and again. They let us dive into fantastic worlds, show us things from different perspectives and evoke the most diverse emotions in us.
I am a cinematographer and film maker and my task is to visualize the stories that are in these heads and thus make them accessible to the audience.
I am a creative tool and have a very particular set of skills that are being used to tell stories and make visions come to life. Skills I have acquired over a fairly long career.
My experience helps me to lead a team effectively. Only when clear instructions are given and tasks are distributed accordingly can a project be realized in a goal-oriented manner.
I react quickly to changes in plans, because every set is different and the goals and ideas of the creative minds are diverse.
I enjoy working with people and am open to new things. More personal relationships can often motivate, which also serves the project.
Due to my work as an editor, I know how shots match each other in editing and how something can be changed while keeping the same message.
With an appropriate budget, almost anything is possible visually. But even with limited funds, I like to plan alternative possibilities with the responsible parties to realize a project in an appealing way.
I have the organization in mind without losing sight of creativity. Often both can be combined very well.
We go on a journey when making a film. With the creative minds I start to plan this journey with the implementation of the ideas. The whole team then works on these ideas and creates something very individual. The result of the production is not only the adventure of filmmaking. At the end of the journey is a collaborative creation: the finished film.
Making films is my passion. The fact that this ultimately results in a unique piece of work is – not only for me – especially fulfilling.
