Music and video has always fascinated me. I would have to make my brain work very hard if I want to remember my first ever encounter with video editing. Back then my days mostly consisted of me browsing the internet, looking for cool videos. When I wasn’t at school or with friends, I would sit at home trying to create my own edits by cutting and combining different videos with my favourite music. Come to think of it, I even remember creating mixtapes for my classmates back in elementary school.
Because of this fascination, it didn’t take long for me to come into contact with festival aftermovies. I was instantly hooked and started dreaming about doing stuff like that for a living. However, I never thought it would actually happen someday.
It wasn’t until I asked Partycrew, an event organization in my hometown Heesch, if they would send me their video footage so I could try and create something, just for fun. They liked it and quickly after started asking me for more serious jobs. It felt like a dream come true. Only thinking about it kept me awake for nights. I was just so excited!
The moment when LNY TNZ asked me to join them on a tour to EDC Las Vegas in 2015, things really started to take off. Many of the largest festivals in the world have lend me their stages, to capture the magic on camera. I spent my days mostly in the studio, on the road and on-stage. It’s pretty hectic from time to time, but I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.
My career so far has brought me to countries like Australia, The United States, Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Thailand, and several countries in Europe. All amazing experiences which I will never forget, and am extremely thankful for. All of them have helped to shape me as the videographer that I am today. I can’t wait to find out what tomorrow will bring.
Along the way I learned that my strength lies in shooting and editing video footage. I love the creative freedom required to build a creative concept. It brings out the best in me and results in the best possible outcome for the project. But things like this require more than a one man team. That’s why I work with creative people, such as audio engineers and motion graphics designers. Together we have taken on multiple projects, combining each specialty and pushing ourselves beyond our limits. We started out as colleagues, but work has changed into friendship for life.
As I wake everyday to the sound of my PC and camera booting up, it reminds me just how lucky I am to have experienced all of this at such a young age. I would like to thank everyone who has laid their trust in me in these past few years, and gave me the opportunity to develop myself as an artist. I have only just started.
