What an incredible use of music! A masterful choice of soundtracks and an amazing sense for rhythm and pacing that lends your films spellbinding energy.
FILM SCORE COMPOSER
Gripping images, a score perfectly in tune with visuals, not a single edit detail left to chance, and a fascinating story that makes one hold his breath. Bravo!
FILMMAKER & EDITOR, ARD TV
My films have been described as immersive, intense, poetic, raw . . . Some applaud the masterful use of music, others highlight the unique style that marries documentary & art, yet others compliment the universal appeal of my work and its power to build bridges between cultures . . .
What stands out as a common denominator is the curiosity my films trigger. The unsettling feeling that the captivating story the audience just watched is only a tiny fragment of a fascinating picture they are missing out on. The longing to find out more about the cultures and exotic places my films portray.
Not a coincidence! Aware that nothing is more intriguing than a riddle yet to be solved, and no traveler as motivated to jump on a plane as one filled with curiosity, I aim to trigger questions rather than providing answers with my films.
Captured in a 'fly on the wall' documentary style, with intimate close-up shots and magnified location sounds, my films have such a suggestive power, the audience feels as if present. In the absence of a narrator, they are forced to imagine the depths of the jungle beyond of what a frame reveals, left with no choice but to dive into their own emotions when interpreting obscure, mystical rituals - just as they would if experiencing a place or a culture firsthand.
Active participants, emotionally and intellectually invested in the story, they are left with the desire to continue their discovery journey once the film comes to its end. Precisely the state of mind you want a traveler to be in when he is exploring your website, just a few clicks away from making a booking . . .
You have a rare gift to capture the sacred and mystical! Even seemingly mundane daily rituals of my religion are portrayed with so much depth. Steering our attention to the emotions in people's faces, you let us feel the invisible, making it possible to relate to cultures and faiths so different from our own.

Hypnotic music, revealing close-ups and an emotional density that makes it impossible to stop watching halfway . . . But most intriguing is the realization that there are places in the world where one can still witness such fascinating rituals in their original form. A great inspiration to plan my future trips abroad differently !

Your films are so different from anything I know. Art and reality at the same time. An entrancing mix! Contemplating upon the seen, I always wonder how intense must be the actual experience if watching these rituals on-screen takes me on such an emotional roller coaster ride!! Only one way to find out : -)
