After getting his master degree in Environmental sciences back in 2008, and after working for several years first as a journalist, then as a project manager at the Ökoinstitut Südtirol/Alto Adige, in 2013 Christian left his comfort zone which was located in Bolzano, Italy, and decided to move to London, UK.
Once there, he attended a short Documentary filmmaking course at Met Film School in West London. The beginning of his career in the British capital was quite tough and rewardless, and after two years Christian moved to another vibrant capital, Berlin.
Here things changed quickly, he got in touch with many interesting and talented people and soon he gained lots of experience on set, both as an Assistant Camera on big productions and as a Cinematographer on smaller gigs. Some of his works have been screened at several film festivals around the world.
Every project, small or big, is a big learning occasion for Christian, who is known on set for his good mood and his unstoppable passion for sweets and cakes.
"Once I was asked why film is art. I answered that it's the sum of many kinds of art, from writing to sculpting and painting, from acting to creating music and sounds. All then goes into creating an image that suits and enhances all this crafts, and that's why I love cinematography so much."
