Outdoor film
Julia Thonig grew up near the forest in eastern Germany. Julia feels a strong connection to nature and spends much of her free time hiking, climbing, caving and trekking. These outdoor activities motivate her to work as a director, videographer and editor for outdoor travel companies and adventure films.
