I am a filmmaker-in-the-making.
Samuel Punto is a high school student in Bad Nauheim, Germany. He has written and filmed his own ideas since his childhood, focusing on the use of analog film since 2019. His first short film, THE CYCLE, won the Special Jury Award at the Visionale19 in Frankfurt, Germany, as well as Second Prize at the German National Youth Film Festival.
His second short film, Distortion (Verzerrung), was shown at over 30 festivals on four continents. Highlights included a showing at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood as part of Dances With Films, and several Best Young Director and Audience Choice Awards. As a result of his success, Samuel was asked to be on the first round jury of the German National Youth Film Awards.
All of Samuel's films to date have been shot on analog film — he is a fan of the aesthetic. The workflow also dictates careful planning and effective work on set, which Samuel believes leads to a better film in the end.
