„Mit Bobby an meiner Seite“ 2 and 3 was shown at TV station nrvision, on Youtube and it had a couple of cinema screenings.

The third part has a little documentary about it as well!

Other projects have been finished as a script, but are still in production or financing phase.

In 2009 I wrote the script for the feature file „Bloody confession“ (director Philip Polcar, develeoped for Maximum Uncut). I just got the rights back and look forward to finding an interested producer for the script!
In 2011 I worked on the concept and finished three sample scripts of an animated series for preschool children „Flora and Patsch (director Lilja Häfele, production: Lilienfilm, still in financing). So far, financing this little gem just hasn’t worked out yet.
In 2011 I wrote the dialogue script of the feature film „20.000“ (production: Andreas Simon), which hasn’t been financed yet.

 

In 2013I also wrote the adaptation feature film „The woman from the Schindelhof (producer: Johannes Eppinger, looking for co-producers.)
2014 I was comissioned with my colleague Corinna Gerhards to write two episodes each for the series „Mindfuck Stories“ adapting the short stories by Christian Hardinghaus for PRovoke Media.
We were lucky enough to get public film funding by Nordmedia. Sadly because of the folding of the production company, this interesting project hasn’t been pursued any further so far.
tv_dtw 2014 I was commissioned by Norwegian company Earthtree Media, international producers of the hit shows Learn To Draw Minis und Box Yourself.
Together with colleagues Angela Amoroso from Oslo and Simon Parsons from Scotland I worked on the series development of „Doodle the world“ and wrote 5 episodes on the kids animation series project about creativity.
index Also in 2014 I was commissioned to write an episode about Sophie Scholl for the international animation series project „Lives of the dissidents“ aimed at grown-ups. The project is still running, looking for financing and I have my finger crossed for this very important topic.
2014 I’ve worked on the feature script „Nine“ together with director Jan Heussner, who wants to do this story as his debut. Right now we are presenting it to many producers and look for the right one…
olchis_dt-300x421 2015 I have been commissioned to work in the series development for animation production company Wunderwerk as well as Oetinger publisher and producer Kai Schöttle to create the new animation series Olchis. I also was commissioned to write two scripts. After successful financing of the Olchi movie, currently the series financing is underway and I look forward to continue working on the Olchis!
2015 I worked for animation production company Ulysses (Animationproduzenten des Jahres 2015!) and created a pitch bible for a kids animation series as a commission. Sadly the broadcaster didn’t pick our project, but it was such a pleasure working with Emely Christians and her team, so I hope to continue this working relationship in the near future!
