Lukas Redl

Producer & Video Editor

ABOUT

“Being a video editor is not just a job. It’s so much more. Editing is a complex task, combining dozens of creative decisions, in order to tell a story. Decisions such as what to keep, what to cut. Choosing a suitable structure, setting the right pace, mood and accompanying pictures, sounds & music. It’s about a perfect combination of all these things in order to bring the pictures alive and hide the editing. Editing is an art. An invisible art.”

I have always been interested in moving pictures, but it was not until 2009 when I finally started discovering the beauty of making them. It was back then when I tried editing for the first time. My debut as a video producer came in 2012, following a decision to pursue a career in video production. For me, video editing is my favourite part of the production process, so I hope it comes as no surprise that my motto is ‘When Words Are Not Enough.’

Profile Picture

One of the biggest struggles is to get a chance to prove yourself in a real production. So, I decided to come up with my own projects in an area I know very well – Motorsport – and in 2014 I had got my first chance to become a video editor for a big project. It was a YouTube-based video magazine “The F1 Magazine” for Grand Prix Times, one of the leading British Formula 1 websites. Then, a couple of months later, I took an exciting opportunity to become a producer of Virtual GP to start a completely new and unique project combining Motorsport and gaming.

 

Since my beginnings, I’ve always focused on high-quality production, a showcase of creative storytelling and overcoming challenges of new and exciting projects. In my spare time, I like to learn about new things and technologies. And when I want to relax, there is nothing better than watching Motorsport, films or travel around the world.

PROJECTS

Magazin Logo

My first ever project was a YouTube show called MAGAZÍN SVĚTOVÉ SÉRIE RENAULT. This video magazine, which was dedicated to the World Series by Renault series, was launched back in 2012. Our goal was to bring Czech fans closer to this exciting racing series by offering behind the scenes videos and exploring lesser-known parts of the sport. The most notable moment came with an exclusive interview with Igor Salaquarda, a team manager of the Czech team, I.S.R. Racing, discussing their successful Formula Renault 3.5 2012 campaign with Sam Bird behind the wheel.

The F1 Magazine Logo

The first international project I worked on was THE F1 MAGAZINE, produced for The F1 Times website (now Motorsport Week), one of the leading British websites dedicated to Formula 1. A bi-weekly YouTube magazine was focused on news, results and analysis. It also discussed interesting topics from the world of F1 – all in a 15-minute show, presented in English and available worldwide. I also had a chance to visit the Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger Tribute 2014 event in Imola to film a special tribute, in honour of the 20th anniversary of their deaths.

VGP Logo

Using all the previous experience, I started working on VIRTUAL GP, a professional virtual racing championship in the Czech Republic. Over the years, it has been praised for high-quality coverage and this ambitious and unique project has even become the most prestigious sim racing series in the Czech Republic and Slovak. Following the success, the project got a sponsorship from Mercedes-Benz, its English coverage made it to the Amazon Prime platform, and recently, we’ve started broadcasting our races live on O2 TV Sport, the biggest Czech pay sports TV channel.
