Storks win on the Japan Wildlife Film Festival 2017

Storks win on the "Japan Wildlife Film Festival 2017" We are very proud, that our Film “Storks – A Village Rooftop Saga” is the winner of the “People and Nature Encouragement Award” on the “Japan Wildlife Film Festival”. The opinion of the jury is as follows:

“A heart-warming story of a small village working together with storks, that has created an ecosystem for people and nature. We applaud the film making team for their keen insight to the village and the storks. The amiable expressions of both people and animal resident´s tells the whole story, which made us think on what can we do in our own cities, towns, and villages to create a wonderful community like this.

Reindeer migration – a unique natural event

Our camera team, Alexandra and Steffen Sailer, have witnessed a stunning spectacle during filming for our documentary “Land of the Far North” (WDR, autumn 2019).
Every spring, reindeer in Norway migrate from the inland to the nutritious coastal areas. If the animals need to cross waters during their route, they are usually carried by boat. But reindeer are actually good swimmers. Therefore, it was a great pleasure for Alexandra and Steffen to get the unique opportunity to film a huge reindeer herd swimming to its summer pasture. This unique event is going to be seen in our two-part documentary “Land of the Far North”.

„Grizzly Encounters –The Private Life of Bears“ and Wild Faces of Switzerland – Water and Ice” in Gödöllö

We are glad, that the second part of our films „Grizzly Encounters - The Private Life of Bears”, and “Wild Faces of Switzerland – Water and Ice” will be screened at the 5th International Film Festival in Gödöllö. The Festival takes place from 25th to 27th of May.

Marco Polo rocks - Interview with „Metallica“-bassist Robert Trujillo

For our documentary „Black is Back – Return of the Vinyl” we met "Metallica's" bass player Robert Trujillo. He shared his passion for vinyl with us in an interview at the vintage record store “Ratzer Records” in Stuttgart. Our documentary “Black is Back” unveils the battle of vinyl lovers worldwide who helped the record to survive: It is a fight between art and commerce. Artists, technicians, and collectors, their passion for the black disc, its unique sound and the creative possibilities were the key to keeping the vinyl record alive. This film tells the amazing story of an old, analogue technique that survived the digital transition against all odds. Many thanks to Robert Trujillo, Ratzer Records and Hawkins & Cross.
