About Me

MARIE - Short film, 2019 I My position: Producer & Director

In the middle of the night Stephan is torn from sleep by an unusual event.

Everything seems to be alright, but then his baby starts crying.

 

MARIE is my first short film and I produced it together with my fellow student and friend Lukas Zschocke.

 

In order not to overwhelm us we wanted to film a short story which was working with just one actor on one location.
After we were satisfied with the script, we had a lot of problems with the realisation. Because the story takes place at night
it was difficult for us to set the light. Also the room was smaller than we thought and on the day of shooting we were too slow.
I directed this film for the first time and because of my lack of experience I found it difficult to do it confidently and
pay less attention to the advice of the team - what confused me at some points.

 

The film reflects many of our problems at that time, nevertheless I am satisfied with my first project.
The film only increased my enthusiasm for film and with Lukas I met a person with whom I still enjoy working today.
