Look Development

Starting from the story in your head, I will develop a plan to assist you before, during and after production. My goal is to translate your vision into an original look that helps your story unfold its full potential.

Crew & Equipment

It’s not your job to know about every piece of tech or have everybody’s phone number at hand. Therefore, I rent equipment and book crew for your production, making sure they get to set with all their gear.

 

Cinematography

On set you should be able to focus on the emotional aspect of telling your story.
As director of photography I help you technically execute your vision, while always giving you the last say on every shot.
I believe that film is a collaborative medium.

Post proDUCTION

Handing over post production to another service provider tends to make this final step more complicated than it needs to be. Offering the whole package, my studio can assist you with various services, like color grading, vfx and sound design.

Hey,
I’m Axel Rothe. For over five years I have been working as a Cinematographer for commercials, music videos, branded content and narrative film.

What I love about my work is helping directors and creatives translate their vision into film. For me this means developing a plan and executing it – for camera, lights or post-production.

Besides working as a Cinematographer I’m the founder and Senior Colorist of Leipzig’s most comprehensive grading studio for commercial and web production.

I’m looking forward to assisting you with your project.

Berlin, Leipzig, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt.

I’m also available for work in the entire European Union, as well as the USA.
