YDA winner update: Andreas Roth
Baden Wurtemberg Film Academy student Andreas Roth has been a regular winner and finalist on YDA – see his earlier work below. Now in his final year at the film school, Roth’s piece for Herbaria Tea is a master piece in post work. Here he tells us about the production.
The project is my third-year spot at the Film Academy. It was produced by a production company – where I’m now signed – called Tempomedia and the Film Academy. The production was a huge experience – not only shooting underwater and the whole prep-work (it took us several months from the script – to the final shoot), but also the fact that we shot it at Pinewood. It was great.
Now I’m in my last year of school – preparing my last two “diploma spots”. After school I would like to go abroad – see the world and try to make cool stuff to expand my reel – not only commercials.
The UCLA Extension Program was a scholarship from our school which I did last year. It was really great – seeing how Hollywood works, meeting some big studios and having the chance to talk to people from the business.
