Camera Acting

Usually it is projects from Kino Kabarets or Kino Dynamique. These are shortfilm festivals where you shoot and cut your film within 71 hours or less and present it at the end of the last day, usually on a cinema screen.

So I play a TV watcher, a shy in the bus sitter, a king, an old ship owner, a chair sitter, a city shaman, a strange tea party host, a therapist, a philosopher....


Kinokabarets (also called: Kino dynamique):
Kabaret like varieté.. a variety of acts. Films usually are up to 7-10 minutes.



"Wake up call" - D:Nikita Gibalenko, part: city shaman (2016)

"Mademoiselle Florentine": - D: Shirin Hooshmandi/ Clemens Niel (2015)
