About Me

ABOUT ME
I've been working as a freelance film producer and media professional since 2010, producing work for a range of different markets. In that time I've mentored a number of people and been mentored myself - now I'm keen to pass on my knowledge to others.
I hold a full, enhanced DBS certificate.

MY EXPERIENCE
I've lectured at a number of colleges and schools, as well as having delivered workshops and seminars for small (and larger) audiences.

MY TUTORING STYLE
I can support individuals on a one-to-one basis using targeted, task orientated learning practices, or through a more flexible approach; whatever works for you. I believe in the importance of holistic learning, so I'll try wherever possible to provide links to complimentary disciplines.

More than anything, I believe that the best learning environment is a relaxed, focussed and trusting one. I want my tutees to be comfortable at all times and I'll spend time making sure you and I get that balance right before we begin.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

My learning philosophy is based on the principle of continuous tailor-made monitoring of your needs and your means. We can meet monthly for long-term follow-up or weekly for a quick learning of techniques and working method. I prefer to start with a meeting. Thus we establish the framework and the objectives of the course. My watchword is friendliness. The rest depends on your desires and your means. We discuss: - Writing with method (Screenwriter) - The preparation of a film (Production assistantship, camera assistant, dop) - The shooting techniques (Camera, sound, staging, decoration, costume, artistic direction) - Data management (DIT) - Post production (Editor, calibrator)

MEDIA TRAINING WORKSHOPS (TELEVISION AND RADIO)
How to prepare for a media interview? What means should be used to fight his fear of the camera and improve his image? How to present yourself and your project in front of a camera? How to present yourself and your project to the media? Targeted content according to your project: Verbal and / or gestural communication; Seduction of the lens and / or microphone; Improvisation in front of a microphone and / or a camera; Voice & gaze; Games of one or two cameras; Chronic; Animation; Reportage; Direct radio & TV; Interview; Narration; Speech in all its forms (...) In short, several objectives: ◾ Confront your shyness in front of the microphone / camera ◾ Understand his speech and his diction ◾ Taming the media environment (radio / tv) ◾ Familiarize yourself with your image and voice ◾ Manage your speaking time Through exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentations, time management, etc.), role plays, interview simulations and familiarization with one's image and voice, the participants move at their own pace in a flexible educational framework. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Indeed, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, which, while taking care of its image, is based on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations ) reflecting the speaker's involvement in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? Knowing how to speak, act and interact in public is almost a necessity today: your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering confidence ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups ● overcoming shyness by assimilating 3 CRV axes (body-breathing-voice) ● better manage disagreement or conflict. Mastered, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on their ease, leadership, charisma, creativity and personal development through scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitches, intention, flow) * get your message across through your image, while gaining improvisation skills and responsiveness Supplemented by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management), role plays, improvisations and simulations. With the key word: pronunciation, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions *. (* study 2020) THE TRAINER - COACH Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking, in renowned international public and private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences, and oriented on pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (example: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Konstantin
Professional musician (M.Comp.) From the Royal College of Music in London gives composition lessons (also composition for film and media)
I offer lessons in composition, especially film music, orchestration and music theory for students (including prospective students), schoolchildren and young people, advanced and experienced and simply interested people in Germany. I completed my Master of Composition at the Royal College of Music last summer and have now moved back to Leipzig. Since the lessons were held in English, English- or Dutch-speaking students are also welcome. Film music is an increasingly popular specialty of composition and is therefore on an up and coming path and not just popular among the younger generation. Classical composition is also an important part, which is why I offer a range from Vaughan Williams to Wagner and John Williams to Hans Zimmer (orchestral music - computer music).

Storytelling. Starting point of a good story or script.
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.

Visual and Media Art / Plastic Art / Conceptual / classical / website / portfolio
As a whole, the courses include a vast repertory which touches the drawing, painting, design and lexicon of colors (chromatic circle; monochrome; monochrome; tutorial of the visual arts language, etc), linocut, cyanotype, photography, basic photoshop course, performance tutoring, etc. Among others, basic research techniques to design supports for the chosen mediums such as how to stretch your own canvas on a false frame or even the design of homemade paper and more. A conceptual approach is very present, but mixes with the classic course, because you obviously have to start somewhere. These art courses / workshops are more anchored in the technique, but if there is a desire to deepen your knowledge in terms of art history, among others, to better understand the trends of art or artists who have influenced a technique for example there will always be opportunities on demand. For the more advanced, it will also be possible to do tutoring on how to proceed with a research method for the evolution of his art, place of dissemination, creation of a website for their portfolio and how to design it. * It will be possible, in the eventuality, to go outside during photography, drawing or other related courses. Depending on the development or the desire of the apprentice, we could go to a museum, gallery or other activity that will support the learning (provide an additional amount to cover the costs of the activity if necessary ). See you above all and see you soon! :) _______________________________________________________ As a whole, the courses include a vast repertoire that touches the drawing, painting, design and lexicon of colors (chromatic circle; monochrome; camaieu; tutoring of the plastic language, etc.), linocut, cyanotype, photography, basic course of photoshop , Performance tutoring, etc. Among other things, basic techniques for designing media for selected mediums such as how to stretch your own canvas on false frame or home-made paper design and more.
