A beautiful part of

"filmmaking is the opportunity to collaborate with so many wonderful people."

Inigo Westmeier was born in 1973 in Brussels, Belgium.

Without speaking a word of Russian, he made the journey to Moscow in 1994 to study cinematography at the VGIK film school (Master of ART degree). Afterwards he completed postgraduate studies at the Filmakademie Baden Württemberg (diploma) in Germany. This sent him with a scholarship to a masterclass at  UCLA in Los Angeles, California.

He has worked for more than twenty years as a cinematographer on award-winning documentaries, international advertisements and narrative features. Now he works as a director, cinematographer, writer and producer on award-winning documentaries and narrative films.
