Hello, I am Sebastian Vacariuc
It is said that creativity is the form of the universe communicating with itself. Photography and film, in this context, 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 few encounters with digital image through VGA phone cameras and Photoshop. The photography became my main passion, illustrating the others. Over the time, it extrapolated to film, since College and because it made sense, to 360 photography and VR. I always liked the efficiency of communicating through images. That saying: ”<em>A picture is worth a thousands words</em> ” – Its for real. Because we tend to judge a book by its cover, 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 important cultural hubs such as London, Paris or Shanghai. As a student, an encouraging moment was being a finalist in ” Sony World Photography Awards: Student Focus Competition”, while most recently I have been selected for the Alfred Fried Photo Exhibition taking place at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris ..”
As a cinematographer, I have been part of the official selection for several international festivals (Mexico Shorts, Cluj Shorts, TIFF), having also received the prize for the “Best Picture” in Documentary Film Section at “The International Film Festival Autumn in Voronet Aside from my own projects I have also been part of the film crew for bigger productions. This has helped me gain invaluable experience as well as exposure to different techniques and styles of filming and production.
