Personal Info

Hi, 

 

my name is Bernhard Bachner. 

 

I am the Junior Producer at makingmovieshappen.

I started working in theaters in 2007, and ten years later I moved on to the moving image.

 

I started out as a Stagehand and worked my way through various theaters in Austria, eventually working as an Assistant Director and Stage Manager. This gave me an insight into various aspects not only of the creative process of developing a play from scratch to opening night, but also into the organizational and technical aspects that bring a play from paper to the stage.

 

In 2017, I started working in the film industry and gained experience as a Location Manager, Production Manager, Fixer and Go-To Guy (I admit that the latter is not an actual job title), which I can now expand here at makingmovieshappen.
