About Thomas Eirich-Schneider

I was born in Pirna/Saxony in 1984 and grew up in the East Ore Mountains. In 2004, I moved to Berlin in order to gain experiences in the cinematographic world. Since the world of film had captured my imagination during my first internship at Ö film production company I started studying TV producing at Dekra Media Academy Berlin and working at X Films Creative Pool. After finishing my Bachelor`s degree and working for X Films Creative Pool at the line producer´s department, I decided to leave production behind and become a assistant camera. In 2009, I studied cinematography at the HFF Potsdam Babelsberg and got my degree in 2014. While studying I also gained more practical experiences by working as a cinematographer in various documentaries, fiction, music videos and commercials.
