Frequently asked questions

What kind of projects do you work on more often?

My focus is on documentary films, feature films and advertising.

What is the typical process you follow?

I believe that flexibility and adaptability are crucial in achieving exceptional results. While each project may have unique requirements, the following steps should be taken: understanding your vision, setting clear goals, creating a schedule, gathering all necessary assets and preparing the project, grading, incorporating feedback and making revisions, and delivering the final product.

What software do you use?

The main tools that I use are DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, The Foundry Hiero, Silverstack Lab, and Shotgun.

Where are you located?

I’m located in Berlin-Germany and I’m available to work worldwide, remotely or on-site.

How do you ensure constant, clear, and effective communication with clients?

I strongly believe that for a project to move forward at a good pace, communication needs to be fluid and fast. That's why I ensure a maximum of 24-hour response time to emails. For feedback, I use Frame.io, and for scheduling and meetings, I prefer Microsoft Teams.

What is your typical availability?

This also depends on your specific needs. Once an agreement is reached I can potentially focus at 100% on your project.

What are your commercial agreements?

I work with two types of commercial agreements.

Per project: I offer different packages depending on the type and needs of the project.
Flexible retainer: billed by the exact amount of hours needed to finish the project.
