Jakob’s relentless interest to tinker with lights, rigs and fixtures was fused with his fascination for film early in his childhood.
Years later he enrolled at the National Film School in Vienna to deepen his knowledge of the craft. He has been working as a gaffer, in the field of his choice, ever since. Specializing in large scale feature films and commercials, his international career has taken him all over the world.
The Light Bridge emerged as Jakob wanted to address and find answers for the needs and possibilities of new age lighting for digital cinematography.
As an industry gaffer with experience on projects ranging from small productions to major film studio shoots, he understands the need for high-quality and economical lighting for various creative projects with differing budgets.
