As a child, I used to get on my family's nerves almost daily with the words "Come and have a look!" because I had once again built something new out of Lego, painted with pencils or made something out of cardboard. Then as now, I was fascinated by creating worlds that do not or cannot exist. Visual effects give us the possibility to tell space epics and fantastic sagas in a believable way. However, they should always be in the service of the story. For me, seamlessly blending reality and fiction is a special art. With my work, I want to take the audience away from their usual everyday life and make them believe for two hours in the dark cinema hall that they could truly experience the adventures shown.
