TÊTE-À-TÊTE WITH DIRECTOR SALOMON LIGTHELM
Salomon was born in South Africa. His career began in music and sound design after recording his own tracks during his formative years spent in Johannesburg. Stints in Dubai and Sydney followed where he was influenced by and absorbed into the culture and music around him. He naturally evolved into writing and scoring films before actually picking up the camera himself and directing self-funded or Kickstarter projects, most notably Anomaly, which grew from a two-minute short into a thirty-eight minute independent film that has widely inspired other filmmakers to use crowdfunding. Salomon’s films have a beautiful and distinctive style of cinematic storytelling, always with a human story at its core. His body of work is growing rapidly, with short films like Rocket Wars, commercials for Tesla, Valvoline, Puma, Audi, Mercedes, and others, as well as music videos for artists like Daughter and Young Fathers. Salomon now lives in New York City with his young family.
