Hello, I am Sebastian Vacariuc

It is said that creativity is the form of the universe communicating with itself. Photography and film, are about transmitting the manifestation of life, the story that it embodies, through creativity. I started photographing at the age of fourteen. Before, I had encounters with digital image through VGA phone cameras and Photoshop and over the time became my main passion. I always liked the efficiency of communicating through images. That saying: ”A picture is worth a thousands words” – Its for real.  We tend to judge a book by its cover and for that, a picture is important to look good, to be read. Since I have picked up photography I received a number of awards and had pictures exhibited in cultural hubs such as London, Paris or Shanghai.  I was a finalist in ” Sony World Photography Awards: Student Focus Competition”, selected for the Alfred Fried Photo Exhibition taking place at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris and received a honorable mention at Monochrome Awards.

As a cinematographer, I filmed and produced documentaries, music videos and commercials.  Aside from my own projects, I have assisted featured film productions. This has me gain invaluable experience as well as exposure to different techniques and styles of filming and production.

“Orsova” is one of the films that are finished and it was part of the following festivals:

“Cluj Shorts” 2016

“Shorts Mexico” 2016

“International Film Festival Autumn in Voronet” 2016 -Won the Best Image Prize

“Festivalul Filmul de Piatra” 2016

In the last years I`ve been working on my film and photography production brand: “Chamaeleo – Capturing Light“ .
