Storytelling Documentary Filmmaker
Have you ever found it difficult to explain your work to friends, family members and potential clients? What if you could have a short web-based documentary video that captures your vision of who you are, what you do and why you do it in a creative, realistic and unique way? I can help you tell your story!
Hi, my name is Idit and I am a storytelling documentary filmmaker. I produce short documentary video portraits of women business owners in Basel, Switzerland.
Throughout my life I always loved taking photos and documenting the people around me. This was always my passion, but as I grew older I followed another career path and went and studied Biology (Pre-Med) with the idea of becoming a veterinarian. After graduating, I ended up in the bio-tech industry instead. But always my passion for photography remained with me.
Later on, while searching for something else to do in life, I went and studied New Media and completed my MA in NYU. A few years later, I ended up in Switzerland, working as a multimedia communication manager for a mid-sized biotech company, combing everything that I have studied. After more than 10 years in the corporate world I decided it was time to move on.
In 2011 I set off on my own and became an independent videographer for various corporate and private clients. In 2016 I began focusing my business on helping promote women businesses owners through documentary video stories. I am currently combining my experience in documentary, photography, and communication, creating short web-based documentary stories for my clients to help connect them, in turn, with their clients, and promote their creative businesses through their unique stories.
I believe in the unique value of documentary storytelling and I am dedicated to telling the personal and professional stories of women business owners in the Basel area.

What's Your StoryInspiration and Advice from Makers, Business Owners and Enterprenuers
I liked working with Idit the moment I met her. Her calm, professional and friendly way made me feel at ease around her – even when she was holding a camera! Her video story about me and my lettering business helped my clients get to know me before we even met. The clip is the very first thing people click on when they visit my website. It inspires prospective clients to want to work with me and makes them more likely to pick up the phone and give me a call. Ever since I posted my video story on my site, I have been able to attract exciting new clients and jobs. Thank you Idit for your outstanding work! Now this video allows me to show people who I am and what I do, in an easy and clear way.

I enjoyed the work with Idit. Her friendly and relaxed way was very helpful for me to stay focused and be myself in front of the camera. Even though it was a long day of concentration and hard work, she made it fun and relaxing. I was extremely impressed by her talent to grasp my story and create something out of it. She was able to put each piece of the puzzle into a complete story in a creative and sensitive way. So now I have a video which is authentic and real. Thank you very much for such a great experience and this beautiful video.
