STEFFEN DE BACK

Cameraman | Editor

Hello, my name is Steffen de Back and I am freelance cameraman and editor.
I am currently living in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

In the past couple of years, I developed myself in the postproduction stage of filmmaking. Although I like to be behind the camera, the editing suite is where I have the most fun. To create a film out of raw material with editing, sound, visual effects and grading is challenging and exciting at the same time. For me, it’s sometimes challenging to stay creative when editing, but every project is different, so with new material come new ideas.
I’ve been editing since I was 11 years old, when I got my first editing software. I then finally could cut the boring parts!
But then, after much trial-and-error, I discovered it was more than just cutting the bad stuff. As an editor you can control the pace, continuity and most importantly: the emotion. That’s when I started to learn about the psychology of film(editing) and how it influences the viewer. I experimented with personal projects and found out how different editing techniques could trigger different reactions from the viewer. Editing is also finding the balance between cutting from what you know and your gut. Do you cut because it’s a rule, or because it feels right. When it works…it works.
All that comes with editing makes it a exciting, challenging, diverse and mostly a fun job to do.

I’m available as Freelancer!
