I am convinced that balance is one of most important qualities in life. That’s why I want to devote my energy to creating something that is enduring.
I was really surprised when I tried to remember when film first came into my life. Not in a sense of watching a movie, but rather trying to make one.
It must be almost 20 years since I was working on my first film with a friend back then at college.
This first short piece of moving pictures with a deconstructive story, 3D elements and tons of visual effects became a kind of a starting point for my career in the film industry.
Since then I followed a path, which led me finally to the advertising industry. Up to now, I have been working on high budget commercials to polish and pimp these onto a stage that is far beyond the real world.
After some time, I noticed my life lacking something more substantial than these commercials, that tell and sell illusions and I began to explore new and more authentic territory.
Together with Agata, I discover ways of bringing our own visions to life, handling the complexity of film making on our own.
Now I’m able to live my passion for beauty and imagery, and at the same time take a step closer to what I think really counts in life. I am convinced that balance is one of most important qualities in life. That’s why I want to devote my energy to creating something that is enduring; that remains unchanged. I believe I can facilitate momentum, not for me personally, but for others who believe in passionately in something and also for those who don’t. This is my effort to make the world a bit brighter.
