Based on your idea I will help with a creative workflow to let your vision become true. I provide full film production from pre- to postproduction. I will setup a crew or work for a smaller budget alone.
People are the heart of a story. Conducting an interview is a profession that I learned in my career as a journalist. No matter if it is expert's talk or personal stories: The best interviews are conversations.
Cinematic or simple? With my full film equipment I create impactful images and work as embedded camera person. I am immediately available throughout the world -- with more professional staff and gear upon request.
You produced footage or plan to do so? As a narrative editor I will give you all my ideas for structure, impact to your audience and potential drama. My goal is to put the viewer as close as possible to the experience.

HI, I'M NICO.
I'm a Berlin-based video producer, narrative editor/cutter and visual journalist with a decade of experience in film production, creative consulting and editing.
My expertise is operating at different levels throughout the film production process -- whether steering as a director or consultant, contributing as a camera person, bringing the film to live in the edit suite or bringing it all together.
I move away from big screens and work where your target audience spends their time: on the internet.
