01/2023 - Did you know that we produced the German dubbing for CYST ourselves? One of the main reasons for the self-production was that we really wanted to use the voice of George Hardy (Peter Harting), known from the cult film Troll 2, and this would not have been possible through a license holder.
Unfortunately, it is often the case that licensees do not put enough time and resources into the dubbing of a film, resulting in a dubbed uniformity.
We wanted to avoid this happening with CYST. So the dubbing book was written internally by Alex König and Nicolai Tegeler, and Eva Habermann and Heike Schroetter directed. How did you like it?
01/2023 - An interesting review of our film The Ugly Truth:
"Director Krishna Ashu Bhati can rely first and foremost on the cast, in addition to the exceedingly adept camera. Eva Habermann gained a whopping 15 kilos in half a year for the role, so that you really believe her bloated appearance of an alcoholic.
Consequently, her outstanding performance outshines all her co-stars, but Grüsser also manages to function as a sympathetic figure who occasionally puts his foot in his mouth, which every forty-year-old has encountered before."
Many thanks to OFDb!
12/2022 - This year we were pleased to produce the annual cinema charts again for our client media control.

12/2022 - Eva was a live guest on the red sofa of the NDR program "DAS!" at the beginning of December and spoke openly about topics such as depression and excessive alcohol consumption, which are also relevant in our film "The Ugly Truth".
"For me it was a matter of the heart to make a film about the topic of depression, because I have gone through this illness myself".
Interview worth watching with remarkable statements.
11/2022 - We created an event film for the Daimler Truck Leadership Conference 2022 in Rottweil - within 36 hours!

"Frida is 40 - and suddenly pregnant. Just as unexpectedly, she is then abandoned by the child's father Felix, even before she can tell him the happy news. Felix is back with his ex, but Frida uses bright colors not only in her painting classes, but also to embellish unpleasant truths: She doesn't want to accept the breakup and tries all means, most of them quite absurd, to win him back. She is supported by 15-year-old Yolanda, who provides the necessary spy equipment. Sweet disaster is inevitable!"
