MAX PREISS

Max is a German DP/cinematographer based out of Berlin. He’s lived in Mexico and the US. He graduated from the German Film and Television Academy of Berlin (DFFB) and held a scholarship at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).

Max shot numerous international documentaries and European feature fiction movies. His works were short listed for the Oscars, nominated for the Emmy’s and won the prestigious Critic’s Week in Cannes. His collaborators reach from Academy Award winner Louie Psihoyos to Emmy Award winner Matthew Heineman.

He is home to both environments - be it large, controlled film sets or chaotic, unpredictable real life scenarios with mini crews. In shaping strong visuals of a story driven character and creating an almost fictional feel for doc-style subjects you will find some of his biggest assets. His curiosity never wears away especially when trying out new styles for shorter formats such as commercials and music videos.
