FULL BIO Simon Spieske [EN]
Filmmaker | Director | Designer | Photographer
Creative Producer at
Located in Mainz, Germany.
I am currently available for international freelance.
Get in touch: 

From a background in film directing, visual design, and  motion design I create brave visual concepts that link the contemporary with the analog world. I defined my visual language in shortfilm making, creation of digital artwork and photography to tell complex stories.
I'm drawn to merely every art form in existence and i like to create in every medium.
Currently i'm working 90% digital. The structures of human psychology and exploring the origins of organic aesthetics is my major driving force. I'm inspired by music, colours, feelings, fellow humans, life experiences, history, futuristic technology and also Japanese culture and design, which I admire a lot. I often find myself behind the camera or NLE to unleash more of my creativity, and train my eye for aesthetics, composition, light and colour. 
Through visionary thinking and emotional interaction, i want to inspire people and communicate authentic stories of fiction, based on reality.

My gear list at
I shoot primarily with Sony cameras like the Sony Alpha a7s III for video or Sony a7r III for photography. 
My favourite lenses are from the Sigma Art series. They open up to f/1.4 and work great on both Sony and Canon bodies. The wide aperture in combination with the ISO performance of an a7s III is just gorgeous at night.

Another one of my favourite lenses are Venus Optics primes. For example the Irix Firefly 15mm f 2.4, or the 15mm Venus Optics (Laowa)
Great for wide shots and architecture or for working with a gimbal setup. Those lenses are almost free of distortions and really sharp.

My favorite vintage lenses, which I use quite frequently, are a set of old NIKKOR f/2.0 Lenses. Not only have they been used by my dad in the 80's, but they also add a lot of character to the images. Using manual lenses slows down the process and this makes me much more aware of the situation.
Before moving to mirrorless full frame in 2017, I used a Canon 5D MKII, Nikon D810 and Sony RX-100 V. And very old HDV, CCD and DV-Cams of course, back in the days...

I'm a PC guy, relying on NVIDIA Graphics cards, Wacom Tablets, and Logitech Peripherals.
The phones I'd currently recommend are the current Samsung Galaxy lineup, Huawei and Sonys.

My favorite coffee is made at Café Libertad Kollektiv, Hamburg.

für Kooperationen, mögliche zusammenarbeit zu besprechen oder einfach nur Hallo zu sagen!
Ich bin derzeit für internationales Freelancing verfügbar.
Aus einem Hintergrund in Filmregie, visuellem Design und Motiondesign erstelle ich mutige visuelle Konzepte, die das Zeitgenössische mit den analogen Welten verbindet. Ich definierte meine Bildsprache in Kurzfilm, digitalen Artworks und Fotografie , um komplexe Geschichten zu erzählen.
