Enter The Maldives

Enter The Maldives is our first international documentary about the unique country in the middle of the Indian Ocean and its inhabitants. In 2 years and a total of 6 weeks we explored the islands with producer Jinah to find out how one of the most popular travel destinations in the world really looks like and how the people deal with the annually growing tourism. What we found out may surprise most tourists.

The Glowing Swamp

The Glowing Swamp is a documentary short film about Marcel Bühler and his artwork “Moorleuchten” (eng.: “The Glowing Swamp”). With the camera we followed the artist from the construction to the final display of his artwork in Nantesbruch. The film captures the atmosphere of the light installation in one of the last moors in Germany and sets the impressive work of art in the scene cinematically.

Michael Porz

Victor Oonk assisted Tim Langford in making his film about his good friend Michael Portz. The film shows both the inspiring profession and the private life of Michael. After an unexpected stroke of fate, Michael Portz rethinks his attitude to life, the subject of feelings and reorients himself professionally. As a coach he now supports others – because life is always about people.
