Three examples from a six part image film series created for the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Winners of A. v. Humboldt Professorships, granted to researchers who are world leaders in their field, are profiled in documentary interview short films. Using a relaxed and interactive approach between film maker and subject created an environment that best enabled the professors to share with the audience what inspires them and what makes their work unique. A strong design sensibility in the framing of scenes maintains dynamic visual interest throughout the films. symbologie. member Axel Schneppat
