Who am I?
My name is Sven and I am a filmmaker. I life and most of the time I work, in Berlin.
With photography as a starting point I moved closer and closer to film making. First with short experimental clips, over to journalistic formats and documentary work. In this process grew the interest more and more of producing narrative formats.
Today I work as a freelancer with an extended network and a broad field of skills and responsibilities.
I cover basically all fields in a production process. Starting by acquiring projects, develop concepts, to hire a team, shooting and editing. I shoot corporate videos, event films, music videos and commercials in different kinds of complexity.
I am glad you found me and my website and if you like what you see, feel free to contact me.

How I Work
Creating an idea
In the process of becoming a filmmaker I learned in my design study’s how to develop an idea, use creative methods to find the right approach to the message you want to provide to your audience.
If necessary we will develop your idea into an format fitting your needs and your budget. No matter if you want to produce a web video, a commercial, a music video or a short film that communicates your brand.
Organising and planing
One part that sometimes gets overlooked while working on an idea is the question of feasibility. You gonna have a budged which is setting the limits of what we can achieve together. Out of my past experiences I will be able to tell you early in the process which resources it needs to realise the project . Once you want to work with me I will provide all the organising tasks from hiring and paying team members to organising gear and locations.
Finding and leading a Team
The most projects are to complex to be handled well by only one person. Part of my way to work is to find and hire fitting personnel to bring the right team for the project. But that’s not where my responsibility ends. I also direct them in their work and provide them with a guideline through the production process.
This is the part where all the time and work upfront pays of. The process of bringing the common idea we developed together into the real world. The way how a set looks and feels is different to every project. But one thing is always the same: The right tools for the job with the right size and kind of a team.
After the production is done, the puzzle peaces must be put together. The post production is something which also should be in mind from the beginning till the end. The process contains the parts of editing the video footage, editing and optimising the sound and colorgrade the image. After that, if wanted any kind of animated elements will be added. The process varies also depending on the project.
Hey, welcome at the end of my website. Hopefully I was able to provide a overview of my work and skills.
