With over 25 years experience in the film industry - in front of and behind the camera - Pixelasia founder and director Lena Lenzen has always had an interest in the human side of the story. In her past career as a director for video clips and commercials shooting in a range of countries in Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia, she concentrated mainly on making brands attractive to consumers. Being based in Timor-Leste gives more space for creativity, exploring the dynamics of a young and rapidly developing country while searching for inspiring narratives along the way. Being the focal point for all projects for Pixelasia's clients from all walks of life, e.g. the Presidency of Timor-Leste, Ministries, UN Agencies, local and international organisations and the private sector, Lena proves her leadership qualities, sets an example for inclusivity and gender equality and contributes her marketing knowledge and communication skills. One of Pixelasia's specialties is the development of Social Behaviour Change Campaigns - from the first brainstorming sessions to the implementation on the field, often in the form of mobile cinema road shows.
Since the beginning Pixelasia is working together with Timorese crew members, freelance camera crew, editors, producers, production assistants and graphic designers. We have done workshops on how to make commercials and we trained assistant editors and production assistants. We prepare actors for their roles in acting workshops.
In total, for our video department and as audio crew for M3 Radio, we employ ten Timorese staff and Timorese freelance crew members. We regularly host interns and volunteers from different countries and bring in experts for selected projects or as mentors for young professionals.
We offer moving and stills pictures as well as graphic design - often as a package for complete campaign development or events and road shows - with a lot of international knowledge suitable to the local and regional market.
