The filmmaker Jan Bäss

Jan Bäss is a passionate filmmaker.  He has specialised in Image films and documentaries for over 13 years. Jan is also a member of the Frisbee Family since the late 1980’s and has been throwing discs all over the world! As an active flying disc historian, he is recording, spreading and also shaping the history of disc sports. His biggest challenge up to now was to direct The Invisible String when the process of finishing the movie did take longer and longer. If there was no Jan, there would be no discumentary!

Mr. Bäss has worked on many different projects before, always splitting his working time in  smaller self directed, filmed and edited projects (Video Journalist style), mostly Short films, Image films for web or presentations for companies or artists and EventfilmsDocumentary films and Making Offs. To ease his mind and play freestyle with the electrons that race through digitally operated systems he has been working on experimental live feedback art presentations as a live operating Video Jockey on exhibitions, parties or concerts.

The bigger (and better payed for) projects were mostly for TV and Imagefilms where he worked in different fields of the production process and therefore gained a profound and professional knowledge of filmmaking. The combination of extraordinary things he did makes him the perfect allrounder. Every new project will benefit from his calmly operated expertise. Try to challenge him.
