Back again in Hollywood...

Planned Projects...

 

Hollywood...

 

...is more than a simple location in the western area of the United States. Hollywood is a feeling, a mental experience of sun, endless rows of palmtrees, Boulevards, touching sunsets, the ocean, surving, impressing houses with large entry doors, expensive shops on “Rodeo Drive“, the “Walk Of Fame“ and stars – stars – stars!

 

“Hollywood Affairs“...

 ...at the time, is the working title for 3-5 minute uncut program for the “montage“ in already existing or planned german-speaking society television magazines, accompanied credited Hollywood-correspondents. Because of their nearly unrestricted access to stars various kinds, here and there, exciting home stories will arise. Other than usual society-contents, we also want to look into the peripheral life of our stars document this with pictures and reports. The benefit for broadcasters will be, that they do not depend on archives anymore, one can order exactly the material needed for almost the same price.

 

“What If“ - an exciting feature-documentary-series

What if...

...the known meteorite would have missed our blue planet earth 60 million years ago and the dinosours would not have been extincted? What would have happened to menkind intelligence? Would reptiles step into our place?

 

...two roman historians would not report, as the only contemporaries, about the execution of Jesus Christ 2000 years ago?

 

...Charles Lindbergh, who was known as devoted to the Third Reich, would have really become president of the United States? How would has history changed?
