Moritz Rautenberg - Director of Photography
Moritz Rautenberg Aliens. The German chancellor. Santa Claus. Moritz had every one of them in front of his camera. He claims he has the best job in the world, except maybe for Udo Lindenberg. Moritz’ accountant has a different opinion on that. HIS PHILOSOPHY: There are three main components of a film: story, story and story. Moritz' cinematography strives to stay true to that - always. THE PAST: The 80s: Born in Hamburg. The 90s: Grew up without a television. The 00s: Discovered his passion for cinema roughly after its 100th anniversary. Since 2010: Got a camera. Got into film school. Got a degree. THE PRESENT: Moritz currently shoots commercials and fictional films for both the small and the big screen. While not shooting he enjoys good company, electronic music and unhealthy food. His cooking skills are lousy. THE FUTURE: Touching the audience with the narrative of his images. Giving every film the distinctive atmosphere and feeling it needs. Support the creative vision of every different director. Putting money aside for a 1960s Ford Mustang Fastback.
