Florian Koch cameraman/editor

Florian is a cameraman and editor, sometimes even simultaneously within one single project. Because Florian gained experience in larger and smaller productions, commercially and in documentary work, he knows all the stages of the commissioned film. That, to the director, is what makes Florian a creative sparring partner. According to Florian technique is secondary to the story. A production may technically be perfect but what counts in the end is conveying the message to the audience.
