Frame Concept is the basic philosophy behind my work as a part-time photographer and filmmaker. You always have to know what you do, therefore you need a concept. Not everything in photography (and filmmaking) is about framing, but framing is an integral concept of these fields of art – you get the idea.
Anyway, since I was young, filming and making pictures has always fascinated me. In the early years of the new millennium, I focussed primarily on filmmaking, so I wrote, produced, directed and edited quite a number of movies – from short films and video clips to feature-length movies. “CH7″ was 2004 one of the first features published under a creative commons licence.
Filmmaking has for me a lot to do with art and not so much with business, that’s why I keep it as a hobby. And that’s why I don’t want to make movies that cost a lot of money. Learn all about my movies and the “gang” I work with at bewegtbild.ch (German only).
In the last few years, my focus switched to photography, not only because it is waaaayyyy less work than making a film, but I’m fascinated with the minimalistic approach (from a filmmaker’s perspective) of photography. You have only one frame (or a few, if you make a series) and no audio to tell a story. And that’s what’s all about: telling stories.
