His interest in filmmaking began with his fascination with cameras. After discovering the intrigue and power of photography, he realized that so much more could be done with films.

Niemeier also creates short films in his free time, either contacting interested talents on Instagram or simply turning to his friends for faces in his films. He also makes advertising clips and music videos, which is how he makes extra cash while doing what he loves.
Filmmaking is a time-consuming activity, however, and among balancing school work and time spent with family and friends, he actively participates in track and field. He clarifies though, that it is his passion to be making videos in his free time, and does not consider it as something that interferes with his other extracurriculars at all.
As for the future, Niemeier seems to be set on the career path to a filmmaker. “I want to make my hobby my work,” he explains. “I definitely want to work in the filmmaking business and probably want to have my own company.”
