About me

Nico Hirsch

I am 19 years old and I come from Landau in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Right now I'm doing an apprenticeship as audio-visual media designer in Mannheim. In my free time I enjoy working as web designer/ programmer or as director of photography on different video and film projects. Besides, I take great interest in photography, so you'll likely find me on the road with my reflex camera.

I firstly got involved in filming in 2007 at the "Open Channel Landau" – a local broadcaster. It offers the possibility of borrowing free technical equipment to every citizen living or working within the transmission area and letting them broadcast self-shot movies over the cable network. Thus, I could gain a lot of experience, not only by taking part in seminars offered there but also by helping them out and contributing to the production and broadcasting process. Throughout the years I was able to increase my knowledge and skills by means of various literature and practical work placements in the film and TV production.

In 2008 I launched the project "Creative Studios". Under this name media productions - in cooperation with other young people-were realized up to the year 2011. One example for a "Creative Studios"-production is the music video Iragai Pole.

At the moment this project is being transformed into a creative network, offering a platform for young media-creators.

I started my triennial apprenticeship as audio-visual media designer in September 2011 at FINGADO, a company doing ENG-assignments for German TV stations such as ZDF, SWR, NDR or BR as well as working in the corporate video production.

Meanwhile, I have also been taking part in a number of productions privately - for example shooting music videos - and right now I'm working on a cinema spot for the "Universum Kinocenter" in Landau.
