Film score and sound design for documentary 'Der Hunsrück'

The fact that the Hunsrück has much more to offer than its obviously beautiful landscapes and forests, becomes clear at the latest when you go into the depths of the low mountain range. There emerged e.g. gemstones glittering in mighty lava rock views, whose existence, from the historical mining and refining, to the present day in the high-tech laboratories of crystal growth, help to shape the history of the people of this region.

Seen Nördlingen from bird’s eye view, a gigantic crater with a diameter of about 25 km can be guessed: the Nördlinger Ries. How this was created, why the astronauts of the Apollo Mission rehearsed here for their moon landing and which advantage the FC Bayern promises of this extraordinary area, are just some of the many regional features to which the film is dedicated.

Film score for documentary 'Future Works'

Most people have it and those who don’t, want it… work.

For many of us work is meaningful and fulfilling, on the other hand for others it is an un-loved and necessary evil. It claims the main part of a human’s lifetime. But at its heart work is constantly evolving and many of the concepts of working, which seem to be nor-mal and self-evident to us since the age of industrialization, are in fact comparatively young and might even lose their universality in the future. So how will we work in the future? Director Natasa von Kopp follows up on those and associated questions about the future of work for German TV station SWR.

Based on the movie “The wheat we eat“ the topic about one of the most important crop plants enters the next round. This time director Dirk Neumann explains for German TV station SWR everything you need to know about wheat and its processing on the basis of two documentaries. Part 1 (“Weizen – Von der Aussaat bis zur Ernte“) shines a light on production processes, whereas part 2 (“Weizen – von der Mühle zum Brot“) deals with the processing of wheat.


Film score for motion picture 'Mes - Walking' and its trailer

Friendship is something wonderful. Under ideal conditions it also develops, when obvious differences, e.g. in age, look or style, don’t let it show that two people are connected deep inside despite outward appearance.

“Walking” (“Mes”), the Kurdish motion-picture from director Shiar Abdi, deals with such a friendship. The movie is set in the 1980’s, where Cengo (Abdullah Ado), a twelve year old boy and the odd, dumb and slightly mentally deranged Xelilo (Selamo) – a man living in an old garage and scuffing and striding up and down in front of the town hall day after day – slowly become friends. They spend more and more time with each other and with Cengo’s friends, as they unexpectedly are drawn into the tribulations of the Turkish take-over of power, which radically changes their lives and those of their families and friends.

Wheat has been cultivated by mankind for several thousand years and even today, it’s one of the most important staple foods there are. But where does all that wheat actually come from? How is it grown, harvested, processed and where and what is it used for? Director Dirk Neumann explores that question with his documentary “The wheat we eat“ for the German TV station SWR. His movie is a production for the educational television programme “Planet Schule”, which is a collaborative project of SWR and WDR. He vividly explains all the different processes wheat has to go through - from seed to mill and beyond.


Theme music for new WDR-TV-series 'Übernachtung & Frühstück'

As their career goes along well-known contemporaries get a distinctive image – whether they like it or not – which lingers in the memory of the public. So actors get often reduced to their most famous role or other celebrities get identified with that part of their live, they have to present to the public. But what about the “normal live” of these people, how do they live, how do they spend their free time, which person is behind that image, he or she gets identified with?
