What does a typical working day involve for you?
My days tend to vary a lot. Sometimes I am filming, at other times I am in the cutting room or frantically searching second-hand shops or props rooms for exciting elements for a set. Course modules and my own work significantly shape my day-to-day work – both are very multi-faceted areas, so I hardly ever get bored.
Where at the Toni-Areal site can you be found?
I very often spend time on the roof terrace. Being able to work surrounded by greenery with a view of the city is a wonderful combination that helps me wind down, even on particularly stressful days.
Which topics are you focussing on at the moment?
Topics currently on my mind are older age and generational differences, including the differing opinions about what constitutes a successful life.
What motivates you?
I am driven by stories. I enjoy showing things in a new light and presenting the seemingly commonplace from a new perspective.
Who would you like to work with one day?
I would very much like to work with dancers sometime. Even though I am not a dancer myself, dance really interests me as a form of expression.
With whom would you like to switch roles for a change?
I would like to swap my role with someone working on an alp. I reckon it would do me good to get away from the screen for a whole summer. The idea of working more with my hands and being in the middle of nature all the time appeals to me.
What is your personal definition of design?
That question is on my mind a lot. I believe design means that something was deliberately set/produced/built, that is to say with a deeper thought behind it.
