“My intention is to deliver a personal professional media service customized to every client’s needs. My background is 25 years experience in Broadcast Media, where I had collaborated with all major TV stations and production companies all over the German and Swiss Television market, working as a vision mixer in the field of music programs, opera, theatre projects, entertainment, television plays and drama series. When I started Alvarhus Media in 2011 I felt it was time for a change, using my experience for media projects with focus on the work of single creatives and firms.

Every client has a story to tell, and I love listening to you. Then we will discuss step by step the process on how your desired message will be best presented. Everything communicates. Visual media is a language, and I am passionate about putting your story into a book, a video or photograph.”

To any of you who have a book project in mind, you’d be unbelievably fortunate to have Gudrun as your designer. She’s the best– incredible energy and talent and is easy to work with. There was absolutely no compromise on quality at any step of the process. Thank you Gudrun!

I have enjoyed immensely the short movies that you have done about Urs’ large-format photography. The visual, artistic sensibilities that you show in your films wonderfully mirrors the vision that he shows in his photographs, resulting in something that is far more than the sum of the two parts. I do quite a lot of large-format documentation photography in my work as a consulting historian, and your short films have been fantastically inspiring. Thank you for sharing them!
