Some clients Thorsten has worked with.

Lighting cameraman skill set and experience

Thorsten can cater to a variety of filming styles:

 

  • ENG/documentary/cinematic/reality
  • Time lapse and slow motion
  • High dynamic range (HDR/LOG) filming
  • Gyro/gimbal motion filming

Skill set example: Reality TV show “Ich bin ein Star, holt mich hier raus”

So far Thorsten has been working as a lighting cameraman on 9 seasons of the German version of “I am a celebrity – get me out of here”, filmed in northern NSW.

Some challenges:

  • The ability to be responsive and able to quickly adjust to a fast changing story line.
    For instance being the sole camera person during many seasons to film the evictions of the shows contestants.
  • Filming interviews with contestants outdoors without the use of artificial lights.
    Requires the ability to handle the fast changing natural lighting conditions in a subtropical rain forest environment.
  • Being able to work consistently and in a professional way over several weeks during harsh weather conditions with extended heat periods and hours of pelting rain.

Editing: In-house or on location

Professional editing services that make your videos shine.

Do you require editing services? Are you interested in getting your logo animated, have existing video material repurposed or simply require a rough cut following the completion of the shoot?

Longer edits will usually be completed in the studio. Footage can be edited there together with you in a comfortable setting or – in case you can not be present – to a script. In either case, the final video will be delivered in a format that suits your purposes.

However, edits can also be done on location for fast delivery, for example for short social media highlight videos or TV news releases.
In this case project files can be rendered directly from the original footage and immediately afterwards uploaded to a cloud server.

TVCs, media releases and b-roll are finalised to broadcast quality standards and provided to you in a HD video format that’s suitable for social media uploads. Video footage from any compatible digital source can be added to your current project. Existing material can be colour corrected and/or combined with still images, stock footage, animations, music, graphics and voiceovers.

“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!”
