We´re independent filmmakers from Cologne, Germany, currently studying and teaching Film at the Macromedia University and the Akademie Deutsche Pop. Throughout the last year we put so much effort into writing, discussing and planning this movie that it’s became a true project of the heart. Inspired by the human fear, author and director Toni Stintzing developed a thrilling screenplay about going through the horror of dealing with a dreadful experience. Now it is ready to get adopted into an amazing short film (that will keep it‘s audience clinched to their seats). To create this project in a manner that lives up to our ideas, we need your help! So JOIN us and make this project happen ;)
Toni Stinzing (top left) is the creative mind of our film project.
Using inspiration from biographical experience and observing important topics of our time, he developed the screenplay and takes on the role of the Director, which is no problem since Toni is a passionate person, constantly working on films with an overview of all the departments. In his freetime Toni gained popularity as a fitness professional.
As a graduated graphic designer André Becker (top mid) is able to undertake all kinds of creative compositions, starting from filming, illustrating, designing, editing, drawing to animating stunning 3D-Objects. As a camera operator he already produced music videos and award-winning short films, that captivate the audience by their unique approach. His passion for art and filming is inimitable for his job as our Director of Photography and once he committed to a project, he’s willing to give it his all."
Our Camera Operator is not only a videographer for high quality fashioncollections and musicians, but Pasindu Goldmann (top right) is also a popular DJ, going by the name of „Schooki“. He’s a very open minded, optimistic person and it doesn’t matter which creative field Pasindu takes on, he’s always capable of giving things a unexpected touch.
Gregory Hegel (bottom left) combines the characteristic of being professional and passionate and he's also warmhearted and loyal. In addition to his study of film he also starred as an actor in a feature film production and convinced as an empathic and talented person. So who else should have been our Assistent Director.
To create a film you need the help of someone who is capable of organizing - Whether it is finances, locations or human resources. Mitti Nghiem (bottom mid) is the right woman for the job of the Producer, because of her diligence and conscientious. But nevertheless working with her is never boring, since her joyful spirit and honest passion for filmmaking is always noticeable.
Music is Maciej Kuleszas (bottom right) preferred means of expression. And he’s well aware of the mediums power. The young creative from Warsaw knows exactly when to go big, but he’s also able to give the film space when it’s needed. His work is never cluttered rather subversive and authentic. We are very grateful to call him a part of our team.

Of course that is not everybody. There are also people for light/grip, audiorecording, assistants and other helping hands!
Everybody from the crew voluntarily works on this project, except Maciej because we want to support him!
Why do we need your help?
We're all students, but it is a personal project and therefore it is not related to any task for university. Which means we have to organize a whole lot and work things out to make it happen on a very low budget.
What happens If the project gets funded?
Thanks to you we can:
- rent proper gear
- rent locations
- pay our actors!
- pay festival fees
- make a great film together with you!
