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.


Silentfilm was established in 2010 with the sole aim to help people tell their stories in ways that beat even their own expectations. This is what we have been doing the past years - in service production as well as in contract work. Our particular strength lies in our range: a lot of experience in acting is also good for image films, a mature documentary toolkit allows us to make clear decisions in tricky shooting situations, a dash of music video aesthetics makes scenic works present.

Our Creative Director Heiko Aufdermauer studied film directing at the renowned Konrad Wolf Academy of Film and Television in Babelsberg. With shooting experience of over 500 projects (as producer, director, D.O.P. or writer), he is equally rooted in narrative film as in internationally successful experimental works.
