    About Jan Raiber

    Since 1999, I made films. Starting editing with Steenbeck, i worked in almost every aspect of a movie-production. Firstly digital editing, than color grading, compositing and VFX.
    During my studies at the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg working as a cameraman became more and more important.

    I was mostly interested in task, where i ditn't had a lot of experiences. New challenges are my pleasure, regardless of working on a big movie-set ore alone at a documentary-shooting.

    Also video-installations in different international museums belong to my repertoire. The non-linear narrative and the interaction with the audience fascinated me.

    Since 2016 I got into 360°3D / VR and have realised different productions. Especially the discovery of new forms of expression with this new media, excites me, albeit there is nothing more than telling a good story.
