“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 England, USA, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Israel, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, Mongolia. Here you find a list of films.
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.
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). Since 1992 I am working for the “International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film” as cinema-assistant.
Also I am working as mediapedagogic with children and youth. Within the scope of that I was director of the REC Filmfestival Berlin from 2000 to 2019. This 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 29th REC-Filmfestival took place from the 16th to 20th of September 2020.
