Career

Christian Baumeister Christian Baumeister Wikipedia

Baumeister studied biology in his native Germany and wildlife filmmaking in the United Kingdom. His previous projects took him to Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.

In 2001 he established his own production company, Light & Shadow, with an office in Münster, Germany. For the past seven years, Baumeister has garnered international acclaim for his wildlife films, from audiences and critics around the world. His first film, Viva Vicuña, shot in the Andean altiplano, features animal behavior never seen on film before. Baumeister's second film, Wild Rio, showcases the colorful wildlife and culture of Rio de Janeiro. The Falls of Iguaçu uses all-HD technology in the first comprehensive portrayal of the World Heritage Site Iguaçu Falls. In 2005, Baumeister toured China with piano prodigy Lang Lang, as director of photography for Dragon Songs, the first DVD for the career of the world-famous Chinese star. In 2008, Baumeister directed a one-hour HD program on Kamchatka, in the Siberian Far East, one of the Earth’s last great wildernesses. Currently, he is producing "Andes Animal Kingdom", a three-part series about the earth’s youngest mountain range, the Andes.
