After graduating UNATC - Romanian Film School - in 1994, Max started working as Director of Photography, having the opportunity to collaborate with multiple Cannes Awards directors like: Cristian Mungiu, Radu Muntean or Cristi Puiu (and many other directors, who are specifically mentioned under each TVC on the D.o.P works page)
After more than 15 years in the field as D.o.P, watching and learning the subtle details of working with actors (from the best directors he worked with) and having a strong background of filming and editing, Max decided to also direct his works.
Clients and Producers from Vietnam, India, Lebanon, Romania or Saudi Arabia gave me credit to film their TVC's as Director and the results were beyond their expectations.
Max always love filming live action, and also tabletop.
If his D.o.P or Director work has caught your eye, and you if you think that we can work together,
Max would like to hear from you.
Thank you !
