ABOUT

Hi! I'm Lena.

I'm a child of the 90s. Inspired by Disney & Pixar stories. Avid 3rd Generation Game Boy & N64 character-driven video gamer and board gamer. Addicted to the Japanese anime & film culture and influenced by brought-to-life (comic book) heroes and film adaptations, such as Star Wars and Harry Potter.

Today I‘m a media producer focused on animation/VFX. I‘m also a passionate hobby photographer and a curious world-traveler interested in foreign cultures and languages.
Raised in Spain and based in Germany.

Vision &
the Big-picture

I've always been motivated to overview and advance existing systems. Therefore I voluntarily joined several commitees at university and always work on new strategies, plan events and research tools to make ones job a bit easier.

Support & (Re-)Presentation

From solving problems and helping out artistically, to protecting, representing and pitching one's vision, I always provide my teammates with advice and assistance. Since 2015 I've also been working as a studies ambassador.

figures, data
and facts

Numbers don't lie. Since the advanced mathematics course at school I love playing with numbers, finding the variable, solving the equation & getting a result. I ran mathematics mentoring and tutoring programmes at university for more than 3 years.

Education

The older I got, the more I  wanted to know: HOW?

How to create new and thrilling stories? How much does a movie cost and how to budget it? How much (wo)menpower is needed to create computer generated images and visual effects? How to sell a project? And which strategy can we apply to achieve long lasting cross-generational success on the market?

If you only work, where does your inspiration come from?

I've been curious all along. So I travelled the Amazon rainforest, realized a photo workshop/film project with the Shuar Indians, taught dancing and image processing (Photoshop) at university and visited Singapore to improve my Chinese language skills.
