As a German Co-producer he currently prepares two comedy feature film projects.


"RED ARMY" is a quite unusual soccer film featuring a team of men who are a bit different ...  The tournament of a lifetime is to be filmed in Manila, the colorful, buzzing and exotic capital of the Philippines.


In contrast "Camus' Dust" is a dark road movie comedy about three men on their way to the infamous Death Valley to bury the ashes of a dog. The filming will start in Los Angeles but quickly moves to the wide arid planes of the western United States.
