About Me

Who I Am.

Hi, I am Christoph, a Freelance Compositing Artist based in Hamburg, Germany. With close to 20 years of working experience i started out on Quantel and 5D Cyborg gear, but later moved to Flame and Nuke as my primary tools of choice. While my primary focus is working on commercials, with a speciality in digital beauty work, I also worked on numerous long format projects.

I am available for both on-site and remote vfx work. And if you want, I can supply my own vfx workstation, complete with current versions of Flame, Nuke, Mocha, Syntheyes and Adobe Creative Cloud. And if you need on-set vfx supervision, I’m available for that as well.
