Leon Vogel, b. 1983,
Independent Video Producer | Creative Director | Editor
Based at the Lake of Constance, Switzerland
I am an Independent Video Producer, Film Editor and Creative Director at Kabasaiko, a family business my brother and I founded in 2019. Spending a good time with inspirational people while being productive is what gets me up in the morning.
Born into an artist family in south Germany- my mother is a goldsmith and my father a musician- I moved to Switzerland where I live and work together with Yumi, my wife and co-producer. She was born and raised in "Tokyo Metropolis". Her Asian background contributes to my personal journey and vice versa.
We focus our visual work on artists, craftmanship and sustainable projects: It's all about setting up healthy, fair and modern environments where future generations are given an increased chance to contribute to the knowledge and solutions our active generations gather and implement through science, arts and sustainability. Our work is only done when they and generations after them live in peace and continue to learn how to make more out of less.
