Our Island – Our Responsibility
My first documentary project took me to the Greek island of Kos, where I spent one week working as a camera operator. The film aims to raise awareness for the issues regarding animal welfare on the island. The municipality has struggled for a long time to address the lack of responsibility taken by citizens and politics to ensure the wellbeing of pets, livestock and wild animals.
Working on this project was a stark contrast to other projects I usually do. The only footage we could really plan for were interviews. Most of the B-Roll had to be shot spontaneously and often under pressure of time. It made for a nice change. The variation of camera rigs, shooting locations and people is what really stands out in a project like this.
The project is currently in Postproduction.
