Rencontre avec Jan-Gerrit Seyler

Jan-Gerrit Seyler vous présentera son film Still got lives le Lundi 7 Avril à 21H30

Jan-Gerrit Seyler is committed to visual as well as performing arts since childhood. 13 years old he was drawn on stage as a boy singer and later as a bit player at the Landestheater Detmold. In his early twenties he tried to analyze rather than creating by studying Philosophy, Psychology and Media Sciences in Berlin and Kiel and did several internships as stage designer, sculptor, lithographer and lighting technician (Studio Hamburg) during that time.

On account of his deep passion for the sea he has taken part on a whole lot of short film projects in the area of Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg within the last six years, including camera and director’s work, sound, editing, and performing. In between he did a number of jobs as a driver for film productions such as the remake of “BUDDENBROOKS – EIN GESCHÄFT VON EINIGER GRÖßE” (“BUDDENBROOKS”, D : Heinrich Breloer) or “DIE FRISEUSE” (“The Hairdresser”, D : Doris Dörrie).

Making “HANDYCAP” he realized his first short film in 2007/08 as writer and director. In 2009 he started studying film at the European Film College in Denmark, finally being involved in nothing but making movies. Among many different projects, he made the documentary “THE EMPIRE OF THE COMMUNE” and graduated with his final project “CAMILLE” in May 2009. Since October 2010 he is studying Directing at the Hamburg Media School.Jan-Gerrit Seyler
