SERVICES

I´ve been in the business since 1998. My main interest is feature films, but I gladly also do commercial work, short films and music videos. My number one goal is to help the director focus in directing, to create the best possible circumstances and set mood for the actors to perform their best, to help the crew give their best work and get the shoot executed as planned - but better. I like to find the problems in advance and to offer solutions actively.

International Experience

I speak and write english fluently. Also a little bit of swedish and german, but not really to be used as a work language.

I have worked in feature film productions shot in Estonia, Germany, Prague, Sweden, U.K. and Greece and have done some commercial and tv-work in Spain, Belgium, Estonia, Latvia and the U.S.

 

Other random propaganda

I do climbing, sailing, snowboarding, trekking, tour skating, some martial arts etc. and I´ve found all of these skills to be helpful at work too from time to time. I can also handle ski-dos, ATV´s, cars, motorcycles, trucks and motor-boats.
