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.
At different academies I am teaching documentary film, camera and video technique and I have published a book about video- and audio techniques (available only in German). 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 am director of the REC Filmfestival Berlin. This festival is an international competition for films from kids and youth. It has two sections: "REC for Kids" (age 6 to 15, the concept in english) and "REC International Young Filmfestival" (age 16 to 27, the concept in english). The next festival will take place from the 30th of September to the 3rd of October 2015.
