After High School, Christian Schroeter decided to work in the movie business. A good start was VIVAFILM in Munich. Just two years later he had the possibility to work for ARRI Rental and cinegate, so he moved to Berlin. This founded the knowledge base to start his own projects as a director and writer. Meanwhile he followed his career as a lightning technician, which, 10 years later, he professionalized as a bestboy and gaffer. 2010, he started to work on the graduate film of his long term cameraman Petja Gohr: This Side of Nowhere. This was also his debut feature as a director and writer.
