Before shooting, I travel. Through the protagonists’ feelings. Through the director’s mind. Together to the story’s heart. Then we bring our vision to life. My tools: light, movement, framing, and a good gut feeling.
What perspective do we adopt? How to make the invisible felt?
Most important to me is a trusting relationship to the director. Plus efficient teamwork on set and always a snack at hand. This is how we create a powerful film. No matter what format.
I look forward to your request.
