“Making films is more a method, to put things in a context, than to invent a story: The renewal of the eye.” Johan van der Keuken
I am working as a freelance cameraman and editor for broadcast-TV-productions since 1989. Mostly it was documentaries with 30 minutes or more for German public TV (RBB, MDR and ARTE), filmed in different countries, for example in England, Poland, USA, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Israel, Russia, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Ukraine, Mongolia. Here you find a list of films.
Since 1992 I am working for the “International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film” as cinema-assistant.
At different academies I am teaching documentary film, camera and video technique and I have published a book about video- and audio techniques (available in German language only).
Also I had worked as mediapedagogic with children and youth. Within the scope of that I was director of the REC Filmfestival Berlin from 2000 to 2019. That festival is an international competition for films from kids and youth. It has two sections: “REC for Kids” (age 6 to 15) and “REC for Youth” (age 16 to 25). The 31st REC-Filmfestival will take place from the 21st to 24th of September 2022. Here you can find the program 2021: The program of REC 2021
Since 2020 I am working as a production manager in the SCREEN BASED MEDIA film studies department at the “Berliner Hochschule für Technik” (former name: Beuth Hochschule).
On my website you can also find some photos I made on different occasions: A series of parks in Berlin: Tempelhof, Gleisdreieck, Treptower Park, landscapes from Iceland and some pictures about “Questions of believing” in Italy.
