In my previous courses of study, I built rockets and racing cars and dropped out of both courses. The fact that I ended up in film after a long search has two reasons: the product and the implementation. Race cars and rockets are tangible objects that can move us from place to place. Movies, on the other hand, are visually realized stories and thus intangible. Yet they can move us - they let us travel to realities we could never physically enter. It takes a large team to make a film, working meticulously like clockwork. I find the role of the producer so exciting and thrilling because, as a communicator and enabler, he is, in a way, the central cog of the clockwork. Bringing people together and creating a level of communication are things that come easily to me. Finding a story on this basis, realizing it together and finally inspiring an audience with it - what could be better?
