I’ve extensively work for ORF Austrian National Broadcaster in Beijing. My responsibilities have been: research and identification of relevant stories/news,  organization of the crew, dealing with shooting permissions and conducting interviews in Chinese.

I’ve been also working at Ctvs as a production coordinator for documentary projects, corporate videos and events, i.e. Mercedes-Benz and Maybach (press kit), production coordinator for BMW, producer/researcher for ARTE‘s documentaries, coordinator for video coverage and live broadcasting of Superformula‘s races in Inner Mongolia and Beijing, managing a crew of 80 people.
