Feature films, Series, Documentaries, Animation, AR/VR/360

The media sector is undergoing massive changes. Major streaming platforms have reached market saturation in North America and Europe, while new participants are constantly entering the market. In the coming years there will be takeovers and stronger predatory competition, which will mainly be based on content. The need for attractive, cost-effective programs will increase and these will have to be produced more collaboratively. With 35 years of experience in the media sector, thorough knowledge of the international market, a broad network and proven success, I help clients with the creative development of their projects. I have accompanied more than 140 productions covering a wide variety from series, documentaries, feature films, animated films to immersive films and XR projects. As Creative Director, I bring together the clients' objectives and the authors' creative achievements. I lead the content development of individual projects while taking into account the strategic selection of financing partners.


Depending on the requirements of the project, I charge for my services in hourly and daily rates or a flat rate.

This is what some of my clients are saying.

It's very lucky that I met Björn Jensen: that was in 2007, I had founded a limited company and wanted to produce my first major cinema documentary. Björn accompanied the project as if it were his own and thus contributed significantly to its success. Not only is he a gifted executive producer, he is also well-versed in legal matters and incredibly competent in marketing and financing. For me, he is one of the most reliable people I know, which is not that common in our industry. Björn is now also the source of content ideas for XR-projects and has expanded my documentary horizons accordingly.

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.
