Sebastian Klinger was born in Switzerland in 1993 and very early developed a strong interest for the art of telling stories through moving pictures. What started as a family project became his own company ‘Klingerfilms’ with which he produced numerous short films, commercials and other award-winning fiction work. However, he now intends to focus more on his initial passion, which is cinematography as the art of bringing a story to life with images. Besides that, Sebastian has also developed a strong interest in the post production process of a film including editing and the implementation of visual effects to further enhance the story.
Sebastian has shot many films with clients all over Switzerland and successfully participated in numerous Swiss film festivals. Several large projects have recently shaped his development to a professional cinematographer, above all a crime web series called ‘Cassian’, a full-length feature film named ‘Zoe’ and the comedy web series ‚Eine z’viel‘.
After his studies at the University of Applied Sciences (HTW) Chur with focus on film and tv production, he now feels eager to dive into the world of professional film production and wouldn’t exclude another study in the field of Cinematography abroad. Recently, the newest short film he worked on, ‚Sew Torn‘ has been acquired by Fox Searchlight and will be released on their channels soon.
