BE A VOICE, NOT AN ECHO
To me, teaching film direction and camera acting means: sharing my experiences and observations of the last 20 years with people who are willing to learn. Giving them tools and creative support. Inspiring them for teamwork and encouraging them to make their own voice heard.
In one of my workshops, in Tanzania, I launched the award-winning film debut “White Shadow” by Noaz Deshe (which I co-produced). The film was shot in a small team together with workshop participants as “training on the job”.
My teaching experience includes Directing courses at Met Film School in Berlin (in English language), workshops and film projects on the African continent (a.o., on behalf of Tom Tykwer and his company One Fine Day Films in Kenya) as well as film workshops for young students on behalf of the Akademie der Künste (Academy of Arts) in Berlin:
