About Me

Camera & Editor

My name is Simon Fölster, I'm twenty something, living in Hamburg. I am working as an editor, camera operator and colorist at post productions GmbH in Hamburg since August 2020. Maily editing with Avid Media Composer, but also love Premiere Pro & DaVinci.

Before I was working as a film and video freelancer - mainly as an editor, colorist, 1. & 2. AC, Data Wrangler, ... - I tried out a lot, because I think every part or team member in a film production is important and special in its own department.

From December 2019 to July 2020 I was also working as a postproduction assistant for elb motion pictures GmbH in Hamburg on projects for ZDF, NDR & SWR and others. I got to know a lot about the workflow in big TV productions and especially in documentaries.

Due to my studies (from 2015 to 2019) with the focus on film I got to know a lot about filming, editing, photography, design & also programming.

With a main focus on filming and editing, I was doing a traineeship in 2018 at the Element E filmproduction in Hamburg for half a year. I was working on a lot of projects during that time for example editing short films for a German TV show called "Olaf macht Mut" with Olaf Schubert. During the internship I mainly worked as an editor but also helped out on many sets for example as 1. & 2. AC.

In mid 2019 I also had the opportunity to shoot a film in Syria, which was a voluntary work for skate-aid and SOS Childrens Villages and which was a really big thing for me! You should check out this project! These kids are awesome and so special to me!
