Storyteller — Made In Germany. For Hire In NYC.
"In film-making and video production, we're all looking for crew who elevate a project with their experience and expertise. Jan filled this need big time, not only as a DP for the interview set ups during the on-location work, but with his collaborations throughout production that helped solidify the tone and creative approach for the final work." - Steve Jarriel, Executive Producer; 2017
"Jan was my DP on a SAG short. He is thoughtful, professional, a creative problem-solver, knows the technology backwards and forwards, is personally generous and most of all a great person to have on set." - Pablo Ceja, Director, 2017
"When your imagining a picture at the beginning, you inevitably are imagining a world rich in texture and color and depth and beauty. A picture fit for CinemaScope. But no matter how perfect the lighting, it will never be the same as the images in your head until it passes by the hands of a Master Colorist. Jan, doesn't go through the motions and make pictures that look pretty. For clarity, he can do that in his sleep. For, The Ghost of Hollow Hills, he created the rich landscape of color and texture that was always burning in my head. He made sure that color schemes were cohesive. My mind can run a mile a minute, pulling on references from movies and oil paintings for this picture. Jan, was always there to reel me in and focus on specific attributes that would covey the story in the simplest visual language. Languages that are now apparent at first glance and also in the viewers sub-conscious as they relate from image to image - I hope my words here are sufficient enough to express my gratitude toward this man but in case I'll add one final thing, and that is his follow through and patience with me. I was scared about working remotely because it required a great deal of trust in handling something so important to me. But his responses were rapid and in immense detail. Quickly, it became hard to be afraid anymore when I slowly began to watch his work on my images burn before me." - Erik Jacobs, Director; 2017
“We were introduced to Jan when he photographed our showroom for an interview with Moda and Estillo. Our paths crossed again through our relationship with Fashion Group International. We had recently decided to develop an informational video in hopes of spreading our corporate message while marketing our services to potential new collaborators. We were fortunate that Jan was available considering his industry knowledge, familiarity with our company and expertise. Within two weeks, we had two versions of a fully formatted video that exceeded our expectations. I can’t thank Jan enough for his easy going professional input which made for an enjoyable and educating experience.” - Bob Sadin, Director Marketing at AGH Trimsource Inc.; 2015
