    About Martin Saalfrank

    Born and raised in Leipzig in 1983.

    At school, my interest in moving images was awakened by working actively on a film working group. Before my studies, I did an internship at Halle Saale TV.

    When I started studying media design at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, I focused on image design and post-production. In numerous university and external projects, I was able to gain experience with camera work, digital and analog film technology and lighting. I was able to deepen my knowledge as a cameraman, especially when creating my final films. Working in large and changing teams, I am used to work flexibly and persistently, as well as quickly adapting to new situations and challenges.
