Like many before us, our main priority is to entertain. However, our intension is to distance ourselves from any ‘crude’ execution, instead we aim to subtly change the viewer’s perspective and by these means trigger emotions and contemplation.
By producing a very international feel, we aim not only to differentiate ourselves from the usual landscape of German-speaking film but also to reach out to a broader audience.
This is the cinematographic approach, vital in the production of all our projects, as well as to deliver artistically produced, strong images.
