WE ARE A BERLIN BASED FILM PRODUCTION
AND MAKE GOOD FILMS FOR GOOD PROJECTS
We are an established Berlin film production and video production company specialising in good films for good projects. Our portfolio includes image film as well as journalistic work, science communication, award-winning music videos, documentaries, social media campaigns and feature films. We work for cinema and television, NGOs, foundations, associations, universities and international corporations such as UNIVERSAL MUSIC, ENGAGEMENT GLOBALE and TESLA.
For some years now, the focus of our work has been the international production of videos for clients who care about the well-being of our planet. Be it through social standards, Fairtrade or generally through sustainable, environmentally and socially responsible action. We are committed to an equal, free and fair society. We make good films for good projects.

Our film BERLIN BYTCH LOVE has been nominated for the DEUTSCHEN DOKUMENTARFILMPREIS. That alone is wonderful - for a film that came out of a real niche, without a significant budget. THANK YOU to all supporters...
