26 Aug Get to Know Force: Krystof Heller
Each week, we’ll be highlighting a key Force Marketing team member here on the blog. Get to know our team a little better, starting today with Video Production Manager Krystof Heller!
Q. What’s your role at Force, and what does it entail?
My role at Force is to produce and edit all the video marketing that we do. Sometimes that entails working on content for our clients such as pre-roll videos, or videos that will live on a clients website or YouTube channel, and sometimes it’s working on internal videos that promote Force as a company that will go on our company blog or YouTube.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about what you do here?
Best part of my job has to do with the filming. Finding the different ways that different people light up in front of the camera is always interesting to me. Certain methods work for certain people and its always interesting seeing how each person responds to being in front of the camera. Also, it’s better than sitting in a chair and wondering if that is where I will experience my death (with all the back pain and joint pain leading up to it included).
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.
My life outside of work can be summed up in 3 words in no particular order: wife, basketball, food. I am an avid basketball player. My desire to play is probably a bit stronger than my ability to play well (at this moment), but I enjoy a good competitive game of basketball. I have been spending a lot of time figuring out what a successful diet is to maintain a healthy lifestyle as well as a healthy psychological relationship with food. My suspicion is that I learned it all wrong as a kid. (Turns out the commercials are selling something, not looking out for your best interest). And finally, firstly wife is life. Sometimes for good, sometimes for less good, but always for the best? I guess? What do I know. Life is hard.
Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or your favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
Dream destination: Any place outside of the US where I may have relatives who will take me around and show me the location from a local’s point of view.
Best place I’ve been: Rome/Italy. So much history and interesting to see how much money the churches had back in the day and what they used/wasted it on.
Q. What’s your dream vehicle?
15-seater van that gets more than a handful of miles to the gallon. Does it exist? Probably not.
Q. What song would you pick to be your theme song?
Rosanna by Toto.
Q. Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Q. What’s a piece of advice you would give a new employee at Force?
Don’t sweat the stuff that could seem small or big. Chess.
Q. What’s your favorite quote?
“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” – Alan Watts
Q. Any weird talents or facts about you?
Grew up in what people considered a cult (at least in the 70s and 80s) and wouldn’t change nothing ’bout it.
Q. Anything else you’d like people to know?
I like jokes and one-liners. Share with me some of your favorites.
