Main Project – Cinematography of Grind

As my Main Project in my area of specialisation, I worked as a cinematographer for the grad film Grind. I had the luck of working with very talented people in my team.
In this psychedelic and psychological horror, the cinematography establishes and immerses the viewer in a mysterious dark city.
Many scenes happen in different claustrophobic and dirty places where the illumination is key to
achieving the true essence of a psychological thriller.
