About Patrick Bierling

A journey which started almost 30 years ago as a Photoassistent in Munich and quickly realised that`s not enough. I need to explore Hollywood and I did study Cinematography at UCLA Los Angeles. The moving Image Virus infected me and I became quickly a DP all over the place but that wasn`t enough either and started become a Steadicam Operator and founded Steadimotion Film. We have been producing tons of Tv Stuff, Commercials, Fairs, Imagefilms and Documentary in Germany and 20+ other Countries.
