The first time when Simon Platzer started to work on his dream to be a cinematographer was in the age of 14.
It`s common in Europe that as a teenager you spare money for a small Motorbike. But his desicion was to purchase a small dv camera.
Not much later he released his first Skateboardmovie and over the years of progression a lot of self produced movies as well as contract work especially for sportcompanys have been done.
His father owns a ski school so the connection to winter or action sports was never far away. He not only worked togheter with freeride and freestyle athletes from europe, as well with guys from overseas. Story telling is a big part in his work what he always tried to improve since his first indy horror movie.
