How did you get into film? What particularly attracted you to become part of this industry?

It’s been many years since I saw the movie „Leon – the Professional“, and yet it left a lasting impression on me. It made me realize that I need to work in this field and that I have stories inside me that need to be told. Over the years, I have worked hard to improve my storytelling skills and develop myself through writing different stories and narratives. Through short films and documentaries, I tried to find and solidify my own voice. In between, I also found employment in the advertising and event industry, where I was able to further hone my camera and editing skills. In the coming years, I will continue to strive to realize the stories that have accumulated over this long journey.

What distinguishes Tirol as a film region for you?

I’ve always had big cities and adventurous streets in my head as movie backdrops. In contrast to the Hollywood-influenced movie scenes, the beauty of Tyrol has recently caught my attention again. Perhaps we have grown older and our minds long for quieter scenes. Perhaps we have simply overlooked the beauties before our eyes all these years. Tirol is a land with countless stories hidden in every corner. There are many regions to explore.

We are curious: Tell us your favourite location in Tirol!

I’m actually still in the process of discovering the filming areas in Tyrol, but in general all the roads in the mountain regions are perfect for car scenes. For me personally, the road from Arlberg to Lech is the most attractive.

And now: The stage is yours! Please introduce yourselves and your field of activity.

My work in film focuses mainly on camera work and editing. As a steady-cam operator, I participate in live broadcasts, striving to produce natural content, especially in a documentary style. During this time, I focused on creating natural visual content with my documentary footage. It was important to me that the naturalness of the images and the stories they contained were expressed in a simple way.

I hope to further develop my desire to tell stories through future documentary projects.

In the coming years, I plan to work in various documentary fields and aspire to contribute to the film industry.
