Über Svetlana Hofmann

Since 17 years my private and professional life has been revolving around the topics of dance, composition and imagery. During my education as a stage dancer, I was already very interested in the challenge of capturing what happened on stage with visual media; finding the right approach on documenting the essence of the performance and the atmosphere in the room. I explored first private film projects and soon found an interest in acquiring the skills to master camera and post production software.
In 2018, with a finished degree in stage dance, I decided to change perspective and started an education as a filmeditor. Since then I have been working as a freelancer on a variety of different projects, from dance over documentary to image clips for brand awareness and social media engagement.
Two years ago I joined Cine+ to deepen my understanding of large scale productions with a focus on color grading.
This year I had the opportunity to work at Kontist for three months. I was responsible for the whole Video – and postproduction for their YouTube Channel.
Now I’m looking to join a company where I can apply my skills around one single product and mission, as I feel most engaged when being part of a production from the first idea on the whiteboard to the finished product.
