Born in Germany, I moved to England seven years ago to take up film studies and complete a practical BA in Filmmaking as well as an MA in Film Studies. For over three years now, I have established myself as an emerging freelance director with short format work ranging from music videos over branded content to narrative short films. I initially focussed on directing but have recently turned my attention toward scriptwriting finding it to be incredibly beneficial to my work as a director and I have grown confident in creating stories that matter and writing engaging characters.
In early 2021, I completed my independent debut short Without Warning. The film enjoyed a successful festival run winning Lift-Off Network’s First Time Filmmaker Sessions among other awards. Most notably, the film was picked up for distribution by TAPE Collective who premiered the film at the BFI London and screened it across the UK for several months. As part of the tour, I spoke on a panel on the themes of identity and language in film. My most recent short film RAVE (2022) is currently on the festival circuit and has earned me nominations in the Directing and Screenwriting categories of the 2022 NYFA as well as having won awards and selections at international festivals. The project allowed me to pursuie my love for experimenting with the film format in terms of both style and structure as writer and director. But the project also put to the foreground my love for music and finding ways to explore it aesthetically in her work. I am excited to expand this interest through my upcoming work with DYCE.
