About me

I have always been enthusiastic about moving images. It all started as a hobby with a small camera that I always had with me.
Over time, my interest in the post-production of media productions grew as well. Already in 2018, I independently planned and implemented commercial advertising productions.
In 2019, I started studying audiovisual media at the Stuttgart Media University with the experience I had gained so far. During the course of my studies, I specialized in visual effects (VFX) for films, more specifically compositing.
After finishing my bachelor's degree in spring 2023, I started as a trainee in the compositing department at RISE Visual Effects Studios, where I had the privilege of contributing to major film productions.
This experience allowed me to collaborate with industry professionals and gain insights into the intricacies of large-scale visual effects projects.

The Upper Floors

Our story tells of an alien world nearly a century in the future, yet so close to us - in an eerie way.
Our characters are plagued by problems that none of us have ever known. And yet we set out to bring them close to the audience - The World and its characters.
We let Althea and the Comtesse have thoughts and feelings that each of us knows and that are only foreign in their context. So we want to create an emotional closeness; to open a window into a world that in many ways can be understood as a hyperbole of ours. So we also want to be topical, critical of the system, want to showcase problems of our society through extreme visions of the future.
But in all this we must not lose sight of the authentic moment, the human encounter of the characters, the real emotion.
In the best case, everyone in the audience will recognize a part of Althea and a part of the Comtesse in themselves when they look closely.
