Alessandro MelazziniCEO, Alpenway GmbH

Björn is an excellent consultant for documentaries and international co-productions. He has the professional expertise to link detailed industry knowledge with efficient pragmatism. He can therefore use his competence in every stage of a production. I can recommend him as expert and consultant.

Björn had been working with me for several years now. He helped a lot in Asia, where he is well known and appreciated, for preparing Asian Side of the Doc. He also successfully runs panels and pitch sessions. He is one of the advisors I consult for Sunny Side, where he acts as a moderator. It means I trust him, I know his dedication to the producers, wherever they come from, and his ability for giving the right advices.

Since many years, I am having both the honor and the pleasure to amicably cooperate with Björn regarding conception, planning and production of documentary films and related international seminars - for example as a Tutor at DOCROADS. This friendship and cooperation is based on high appreciation shown in one another for mutual knowledge and confidence. Björn has always been a fair man and, based on his extensive experience, this is how he particularly engages with our Chinese partners. Continuation required!

Βjoern is honoring me with his friendship for many years. A gifted filmmaker, a convincing pitcher and a successful distributor, with profound knowledge and expertise of the Asian market in particular. Together we developed DOCROADS, a Chinese and European training initiative for creative documentary. This is were I realized that he is also a charismatic and passionate scholar, eager to share his knowledge and the spirit of film making with his fellow partners and students.

Georg ProkopCEO, Filmfee GmbH

Björn is the living Encyclica Britannica of film production. He is the ideal partner and advisor for all queries concerning production, finances, contracts and sales. However, I refuse to write more about Björn, as my only interest is for him to work for me and not for others. Sorry, but I continue to need him!

Björn Jensen has been distributing my films nationally and internationally for the last years. He has done this with great efficiency and my films sold beautifully. I recommend Björn to all film makers and production companies, he works with highest standards and professionality.

Björn is skilled in every aspect of international documentary production and sales. What’s more, he really understands people. He increases the success of every project he’s on — in my case, he transformed it into a winning pitch!

Where does the company name comes from ?

Ginger Foot is a term used in South-East Asia to describe a kind of flat foot. Our logo is a photograph of a real ginger foot. People with ginger feet have unusual skills, using their feet almost as skilfully as their hands.
The name is our game: We surprise with unusual concepts, bridging creativity and management.
