WHEN WORK IS NOT JUST WORK

Once I read a quote that said "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life," and it has been stuck in my mind ever since. During grammar school, we had the possibility to take optional courses and because the day before I watched the movie Fight Club (which was the first film where I not only loved the plot, but also got interested in the handcraft of cinematography) I decided to take “film making”. You could say that this was the moment I wanted to work in the film industry.
At the beginning, I wanted to keep all options open and tried to get to know other media fields better like radio and print by doing internships in those fields. All categories were interesting, but deep inside I always knew, it’s going to be film.

Why do I shoot with a smartphone? Why with a RED?
I take advantage of what the world of technology has provided me to produce content. I love telling stories and showing emotions using motion picture. And I enjoy being able to show people what I see through my eyes.

I've met some amazing people, had the honour to work with great personalities and I've made people appreciate me and my accomplishments. I can even say film making became my life, because the second I turn my head to a different direction, I get a new idea of what to capture on film.
