Director Statement

'Behind the Mask' is a project about passion for nature. We love to dive, fly and shoot. Along the way we observe, listen and document. The results are published as short narrative or short documentary films, pictures and reports.
As soon as we are on a trip we feel like little kids playing outside, discovering something new under each stone. With new media at hand and a long builded up expertise in creating appealing media, 'Behind the Mask' we find a healthy balance in our lives.
We want to be part of the global network of creative nature enthusiasts trying to push our own limitations a bit further every time.
We intent to be polite, entertaining and transparent in our actions.
We believe that by telling our stories we can shine a light on the beauty of nature.
