I graduated the Romanian National University of Theatre and Film (UNATC) in2009, with the "Film Editing and Sound design" specialization and have since then worked on numerous film and television projects. In 2011 Cristiana and I founded Aesir Studio which has since then grown and welcomed interesting and creative projects.
When possible, I like to alternate editing with sound design, as I feel this allows me to always keep a fresh view on the project at hand, and keeps me focused on telling the story.
My relationship with sound is of a more analytical nature - I sometimes spend hours on adjusting a certain sound to my liking, although I'm somehow aware that most of the audience will never hear what I'm doing, hoping that they will sense it, at least on a subliminal level.
I also have a keen interest in how sound interacts with the world we live in, how we interact with sound on a perceptual level, and have been studying acoustics and psychoacoustics ever since before my graduation, but I feel like there's always still a lot to learn.
By formal education (National University of Theatre and Film) i am a licensed cinematographer. Short films i've helped create have been selected in national and international competitions or in Romanian film panoramas.
By self-education i've done professional work on various short, medium or feature films as still photographer, commercial photograpy or book illustrations (a project very dear to me was illustrating some of Shakespeare's works for "Adevãrul" printing and publishing house) and have for some years now, been specializing in underwater photography.
Giving footage a new look is what i enjoy doing most, so i see color grading as my preferred activity in film, although each new project brings something new and exciting, no matter the work field.
Working in film and media is something i do with ease, mostly because of my learning capacity and adaptability - my last project implied working as a graphic and visual effects artist and film restorator for "Quod Erat Demonstrandum", directed by Andrei Gruzsniczki.
