Born in Germany, Andreas immigrated to NZ in 2002 after traveling for 2 years and more than 50,000 km in a custom built expedition truck through remote parts of Europe, the Middle East, India, Nepal and Australia. He shared his travel adventures and experiences in an online travel blog, posting stories and hundreds of photos from internet café’s along the way. Today he regrets not taking a video camera to document this trip! Still a passionate photographer, Andreas developed over the recent years a strong interest in film-making with main emphasis on cinematography and editing. Eager to learn from more experienced filmmakers, he joined the Film Society in late 2019 and aims to make his first short film by end of 2020.
