Berlin based editor/colourist with my own setup. I’ve experience shooting behind the camera, drafting screenplays and editing. I’m officially qualified in DaVinci Resolve by Black Magic Design and used to teach the Adobe suite commercially when I was in the UK.

Some career background. I primarily worked as a photojournalist (published in The Guardian, Rolling Stone, Der Spiegel amongst others). Prior to this, I attended screenwriting workshops in my youth, crewed on shorts and then worked as an extreme sports coach which led me back to photography and then filmmaking. So, there you go, a round trip back to film and 30 years in a few, short sentences.

In addition to my editing, I additionally write regular film reviews for national publications like Bild (amongst others).

To see what I'm currently working on please check out my insta (www.instagram.com/markesper) and visit www.thewinterghost.com for details about my last film which is currently in the art festival circuit.
