behind the camera
During my exchange year in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I had the amazing opportunity to take film classes and help as an intern at the Santa Fe Community College, where I learned a lot about lighting, sound, editing and the history of film.
I’m currently working for Orisono, a film-, music- and soundproduction firm in Lucerne.
My name is Hannah Dobbertin and I am a 20-year-old Swiss filmmaker. I made my first stop-motion films when I could barely hold a camera and rediscovered my love for filmmaking at the age of sixteen. I’ve been making short videos ever since. In my last year of high school I produced a 23-minute narrative film about two refugees at different times in history.
