ZEE UPĪTIS

Self-shooting PD / Editor / Sound Designer

Reconfigured filmmaker with formative roots in techno, warez/demoscene and drug trade, existing in close parallel to arts and media; past and present includes journalism, coding, live visuals, music production, and the organization of raves and festivals.

For the last few years, Zee has been working internationally as a cameraperson, gaining extensive experience and a robust ability to work in difficult, unfolding situations – and also producing, directing and editing his own projects, most notably Frontier Church, the story of an Orthodox priest bringing church services to soldiers on the front line; and Divided Together, an experimental crossdiscipline venture involving composite 360 video and theatre performance.

His particular interest lies in topics that touch on the various freedoms of an individual, or society as a whole, including those of subcultures and spiritual practices, and the feedback loop of human choices shaping environment shaping human life.
