In The Making, Longlist - Personal Project

High Contrast

Julian Gerchow

Since my youth I am passionate about photography and film. After high school I was able to pursue this interest in the context of a FSJK (Voluntary Social Year Culture) in a program cinema (Rex in Darmstadt). An internship at the Düsseldorf communication designer and photographer Karsten Moll (kommunikationskontor, Düsseldorf) followed. 2017 I started studying Communication Design in Wiesbaden. During my study-accompanying, six-month internship I worked as an intern at Thomas Kettner in Hamburg, an internationally operating photographer and filmmaker. In his television advertising projects I was alternately responsible for editing, camera assistance and camera. In addition to studying, I have written my own filmic and photographic work. My short film “Job is Job” was created as part of the 99Fire Films Award; in Bessere Zeiten (2019) I was a screenwriter, director and producer active.
