The Story

Even though I was born in Switzerland, I grew up all over the world. At only four years old, I embarked on travels with my parents and younger brother (Lenny Hudson). Through this, I gained valuable life experience early on, which I use to inspire the stories I create.

In 2019, I started studying at an acting school in Zurich, Switzerland, which I finished in 2022. This soon sparked a love for cinema and the making of film. Since then, I’ve also been exploring the world of directing and quite by default; producing.

I would say my carrier started in 2021. I spent the following two years gaining experience on loads of different productions and in different positions.

In 2022 I started writing “Verlier mich nicht” and spent the next year putting things in motion. This was quite the challenge for me. But through perseverance, I succeeded in the task I set myself.

Now, I’m working at 89 Productions GmbH as a Junior Producer gaining valuable knowledge and working on future projects.

The Director

I view directing as translating words to screen. Showing the viewer how I see the world and bringing them on an unforgetable journey. I love working out every single detail to create a perfect picture. Working as a team with everyone pursuing the same goal.

The Director

My strength as a director is displaying emotion. Allowing the viewer to feel with the character. I am fascinated by people and I love diving into their lives. Because of this, I tend to lean towards making character driven films.

The Director

I lean into a more experimental style. Telling a story by using all of the techniques possible. But I still keep it grounded. My first priority when telling a story is always to get the viewer emotionally invested.

The Actor

Bringing life to a fictional character and discovering what makes him sad, happy, laugh or angry. Finding out what drives him. Changing everything about yourself to becoming someone new and yet trying to find similarities. This, I love.

The Actor

As an actor, I’m more on the method side of it. I immerse myself fully in the person I’m trying to become. I also work a lot with displaying fine emotions. Therefore, I pursue more screen acting.

The Actor

Collaboration with the director is always my first priority. I can easily adapt to the directors style and communication. I also like to keep a strong knowledge of what is going on, on the technical side, so that I can optimally work with the camera, sound, etc.

The Producer

Bringing people together for a single cause: art.

Producing is rather new to me. I’ve discovered a love for organising and communication. I love following the whole process from start to finish. Being there for every part of the production. Being responsible for even making the production possible.

The Producer

It’s like a puzzle. But instead of having all of the pieces in front of me, I have to find each one first and only then can I put it in place.

The Producer

I like to keep everything well organised. I always plan ahead. This gives me room to improvise if need be. Makingsure the crew are well taken care of is definetly one of my priorities.

The Writer

Creating life out of thin air. Finding meaning and purpose. Integrating your own experiences and vulnerabilities. All this to create a world that does not exist, but has to be believable enough for the reader to care about words on a paper.

The Writer

I am a big fan of already describing the scene and world the characters live in. Even if it will look different on set. I deem it important to set an image for the reader.

The Philosophy

The energy I experience with a group of people collectively working towards one goal is unmatched to anything else. Everyone working in sync, being on a funcional set, is like being in an engine (I imagine). Everone is reliant on the other person and everyone plays their part to perfection. Creating art and enterntainment as a team.

I strive to find people I work best with and can find common ground. I create a safe space for people to let their creativity roam free. This resulting in the best product possible. Treating everyone with the same respect is a must for me because you never know from who the next best idea will come. But I also create a strict and organised enviroment. Where trust is built and everyone knows what their individual job is. Through this working efficiently.
