Where do you come from and where do you live at the moment?
I’m originally from Wels in Upper Austria, or “Wös” as the locals pronounce it. I spent most of my career in New York City and then moved back to Vienna to enjoy the quality of life.
What is the greatest masterpiece of film in your opinion?
There are so many… Three Times by Hou Hsiao-hsien, 3 Irons by Kim Ki-duk, 400 Blows by Truffaut. Apparently, I prefer films with numbers in the title.
A highlight of your career?
Every little step along the way. Recently, I came across a project of mine on a torrent site. I was the cinematographer and felt honored that someone bothered to bootleg it.
