The best stories are not created or invented by me, but are discovered. I make films that inspire, educate, introduce, and make curious. From heartwarming videos, to honest stories, to cinematic commercials. Stories and events that cannot be captured by photography alone become more tangible through the medium of film. Through my former employment at the London company Lonelyleap, which specialised in documentary style films and commercial videos, I was able to gain valuable experience in the field of film production and bring some of their approaches to Austria.

Because with the production of the film alone – it is not done, suitable platforms with a publishing strategy is half the rent. For this I work with other companies in Vorarlberg and Austria, so that the film is seen by the right target group in the end.
How elaborate is the production of an image film or advertising video?
It depends on how extensive the film is meant to be. In any case, it does not always have to be an elaborate, extensive advertising film. In times of social media platforms, such as Instagram, where videos are limited to one minute, shorter film formats are becoming more and more interesting. That’s why I would first ask if you are looking for a whole image film, or if short moving images or product
