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!
