I am a self-made and independent filmmaker from Hannover, Germany. After moving to Tromsø, Northern Norway, in January 1990 I devoted my life to Arctic Nature by environmental research and outdoor living. Besides others, I am specialized in outdoor photography, particularly during winter.

An Arctic Fairy Tale is a nature documentary film on the diversity and beauty of Northern Norway. The film is composed by nine individual time-lapse animated episodes. Each episode has its own main theme and displays either a) one of the arctic seasons (e.g. The Polar Night, Arctic Summer) or b) a special natural phenomena (e.g. Frost Smoke, Northern Lights). Chronologically combined the episodes tell the story of one “Arctic Light-year” in Northern Norway.
