From a taxi in Berlin to the office in Amsterdam


My journey with Makmende Media started back in 2015 when I was in Berlin. I met a  taxi driver who is also a freelance cinematographer. After we talked about filmmaking, he told me about Makmende Media and advised me to apply and work with them. He’d worked with them before and he said they were always in search of creatives from all around the world.
