We give ideas a professional format: a schema, a concept, and finally a screenplay for a film or an event. Our strengths lie in research and story-telling, as well as in developing original formats which surpass the boundaries of classic narrative forms.
Ideas constitute our raw material. We develop ideas in collaboration with our partners – with them and for them. The starting point is always a story, which we shape into narratives with the power to captivate a broad audience.
We produce the images that evoke strong emotions. We possess decades’ worth of experience in the implementation of large-scale projects – as creative producers, authors, directors and co-producers. We offer our services as partners, from the film shoot itself to post-production.
We share our knowledge. We offer lectures, workshops and seminars for a broad spectrum of partners. We are eager to transmit our experience and competences in working in a transnational, interdisciplinary and goal-oriented manner.
