Simone Hart

DOP

Where are you from and where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Linz. I moved to Vienna for my studies and have somehow never left. But I also feel very comfortable here.

What is the greatest masterpiece of film in your opinion?
That would only be fair to answer once I’ve seen all the films. I‘m working on it 😉

A highlight in your career?
A little girl sees me with a camera on my shoulder and says to her friend “Wow, so cool! Do you think I can do that too?”.

What else is your passion?
I really like being in nature. Hiking, mountaineering, skiing, camping… It gives me so much strength, peace and inspiration. Art and cuisine must also be mentioned in this context. I’m just a connoisseur, preferably with all my senses.

A fun fact about you / Any guilty pleasure?
I love arugula! That’s why I’ve already been given T-shirts, bottles, bags, cards, etc. with a rocket motif. Most of the time I take a pack of rocket with me to the cinema instead of popcorn as a snack.
