The journey began in 2013, with the viral success of my first little video "Welcome to Erasmus - If Erasmus had a Trailer" which is still being used in ESN at the start of the semesters across Europe 10 years later.
The turning point came in 2014 when I joined as the video director for the flagship project Mov'in Europe of ESN International. The Annual General Meeting in Milano saw the premiere of my first video in front of a captivated audience of 1000 people. As the room fell silent, the realization hit me – "Shit man, it's working!?!?!" It was in that moment that I knew I wanted to dedicate my life to this craft.
The journey continued with the creation of videos that I now call my Erasmus Classics such as the ESN Recruitment Video "Erasmus Encore" and the ESN Imagefilm "#THISisESN." In 2014 and motivated by the reactions to my videos from the international community, I officially registering my small business as a freelancer on October 30th.
Post-graduation in 2016 the question was still open if videomaking can sustain me both creatively and financially? However, 2017 marked a turning point, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of Erasmus+. Opportunities poured in, a testament to the connections forged during my time with ESN.
Navigating through the highs and lows, the past two years witnessed a transformative process, elevating my small business to the status of a corporation in Germany (Einzelunternehmer zur GmbH). With the foundation laid, I find myself in a state of immense happiness, motivation, and relaxation, ready to embark on new projects and plans.
Already booked until the end of 2024, every upcoming venture feels like a bonus. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has supported me over the past decade and believed in both me and my skills. Here's to the next chapter of Doodt Media – a decade of dreams turned into a reality.
Thank you for being part of this incredible journey! 🎬✨
