Roger Ditter

Roger Ditter‘s fascination with all things digital started in the mid-1980‘s: In the soft green light of his „Olivetti M24“ he taught himself the coding language „BASIC“.

He‘s been spending “way too much” time figuring out technical gadgets ever since. The passionate smartphone filmmaker is fascinated by robots as well as by the positive changes that come with big data. Even though gaming doesn‘t fit into his schedule very often, Roger Ditter believes that computer games are the narrative medium of the future.
