“When the Islands of Vanuatu were struck by a devastating Cyclone in early 2015 I was in urgent need of a camera-person. Knowing Thorsten from a number of Meetings of the Foreign Correspondents’ Association I called him, very well knowing that it might be a bit risky, as we never formed a team before.

As I was already in Vanuatu’s capital he took the earliest flight from Sydney over to the islands where I met him at the airport. What followed was hard work and a number of extremely fruitful days. Shooting amongst traumatised people in a totally destroyed environment was a tremendous challenge. Thorsten was remarkably flexible, creative and co-operative. We got exactly what we needed for our documentary – and even a little more.

I would certainly love to work with him again.”

On location editing

“Great Results, Good Value, Creative.

I have employed Thorsten many times to shoot TVCs. Thorsten provides excellent service especially when the client is budget conscious. Because Thorsten has a great understanding of our needs he can shoot and light a scene without us going to the expense of hiring a large crew. On occasions Thorsten has also put together a rough edit overnight on location which allows us to have a clear direction of where we are heading. It is his knowledge of shooting and editing which makes him so valuable. You can always be sure when Thorsten is shooting that you will not go into the edit suite missing a shot. I would recommend Thorsten to anyone seeking a highly competent and creative lighting cameraman.”

“My head of post production said the footage was “Great.”

And Thorsten, he NEVER says that. The best I’ve ever heard him describe footage is “acceptable” or “good.”

Thank you for the good work!”
