Shooting a commercial in the first semester I already realized: “That’s what I want to do!” I saw my strength especially in organisation and coordination. Therefore I decided that I wanted to work in the field of movie production.

Until now I have worked on many projects, but this one – our bachelor thesis – is the most challenging of all. In October 2014 I will start my master studies at Hamburg Media School, subject film production.

From 2011 until 2014 I worked as a freelancing cinematographer for Wuger filmworks.
Since April 2014 I have an employment as a motion designer and cinematographer at Wiegärtner Kommunikation.
From August 2012 until January 2013 I did an internship at ARRI München in the light and camera rental department.

Furthermore I got a lot of experience in lighting and cinematography working on numerous private and student projects.

My challenge for 11 Years is transfering the ideas of the team to images that have a maximum of impact on the audience and support the story of the movie in every single shot.



Christina Greiner: VFX/Compositing, Title Design


Hi, I am Christina.

“Invisible Visual Effects” are my passion – to work on the image, so the vision behind it becomes visible in the final step. Together with Jan I am responsible for the digital post-production of the movie as well as the title design. Together with Feodora I am concerned with the funding and sponsoring of our project.

It’s all Gollum’s fault.
When I saw “The Lord of the Rings” for the first time, I instantly knew: That is exactly what I want to do! I was only 13 years old at the time. Today I am ten years older, I’m studying Design with main focus on Film and Animation in Nuremberg and at the moment I’m working on my bachelor thesis – a science fiction short movie. I have specialised on compositing and did an internship at ARRI Film and TV in the VFX department in Munich.

I have not only worked on student projects (my own and those of fellow students), but I have also done several freelancing compositing jobs.
