> During teenagehood, went a lot to the cinema of the neighbourhood where they would show many old movies. Discovered Agnes Varda, Jacques Demy, Chris Marker, Pasolini... the classics. Understood films could be political, musical, mythological, poetical, weird, different. Didn’t know at that time what it means, to make a film for real, but kind of found in love with this medium. First thought about becoming a filmmusic compositor but, instead of that, took another direction and studied philosophy. During some years, read a lot about films and cinema and wrote. Then, had enough of reading and writing, began to do films and liked it <

> Work very often with the same collaborators, who are also directors themselves. Occasionnaly work for them as a cinematographer (ex: Wich Way To The West, dir. Kristina Kilian, 2019, “3sat Award at Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen) or as an editor (The Ink Doesn’t Dry, dir. Felix Herrmann, nominated for the German Shortfilm Prize) <
