“My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected onto a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.”
Robert Bresson, Notes on the Cinematographer

Film making usually consists of collecting a lot of pieces over a long period of time and it‘s only during editing that we discover how they fit together and what film emerges. It defines not only story and narration but also the pace and rhythm.

Christoph Manz was born 1976 in Switzerland and grew up near Zürich. He graduated from the „Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin“ (dffb) in 2005, where he studied cinematography, inspired by and learning from Michael Ballhaus, Sophie Maintigneux, Slawomir Idziak, Martin Kukula, Edward Yang and Béla Tarr, among others.
He works as cinematographer and in post-production for independent films, documentaries and art projects of Isa Genzken, Pola Sieverding, Simon Starling and Hito Steyerl to name a few. He teaches in the field of film and video at the Universität der Künste Berlin.

The seminar will be in english with some german translation.
Das Seminar wird auf Englisch mit einigen deutschen Übersetzungen stattfinden.
