Shanghai After Class Project 2016

Again I was taking part of the project «After Class» by outreach GmbH and the Shanghai Theatre Academy. In a group of nine Swiss filmmakers I travelled to Shanghai, where we shot five short documentary teasers about different after class topics, which could lead to shooting a documentary shortfilm in autumn 2016.

I worked together with director Antonia Meile and editor Titus Bütler on a project about dragon dance. Therefore we shot a group of students at Shanghai Maritime University, training for dragon dance competitions. They did a wonderful performance for our camera, which you can watch on my reel.

I also shot some footage for Simon Webers (Voltafilm Lucerne) film, «The Taoist Priest», which follows a University student and her abilities for fortune telling.
