Saint Gobain's World Tour stop in Philadelphia

When French glass-maker Saint-Gobain's 350th Anniversary World Tour stopped in Philadelphia, PPP was chosen to manage the entire production. Architectural planning, permitting, setup, crew, infrasturcture support and a few odds and ends like a 120kw dual generator or a last minute visitor ramp where on the task list. Here a client's clip of the show's Shanghai setup.
French conceived & Czech built our Parisian friends of FC2 created and managed worldwide. Not a small task but well received as the stream of 100k plus visitors in 6 days and a very happy Saint-Gobain USA team confirmed.

2x 16:9, an unusual format

For Germany’s banknote & creditcard maker Giesecke & Devrient and agency Cadrage, we produced NY scenes for G&D's new image film.  Because of the 2x 16:9 HD environment, all actors appear fairly small in an ultrawide frame now fuse that with New York City's landscape, that's a challenge.
Seven locations in 1 1/2 days with company moves all across town, made for a busy schedule...but we made it happen. See the original clip here...

Christoph Waltz's Oscar No.2

Found in the video vault..the production of Ziegler Film's 'Deadly Inheritance' aka 'Moederisches Erbe' with Christoph Waltz in the lead. A TV movie directed by Vienna's Peter Patzak we produced in New York several moons ago, here's a clip:
Patzak who directed Waltz many times before says: '...if anyone deserves this Oscar its Christoph, he always works as much as he can to get his character right..." Kudos to Chris and off to the next one!

Livestream for 'Engage' New York

Webcasting aka 'livestreaming' with a global reach is an appealing way to extend your presentation. We've been working in this field for over 15 years, and because of smart apps 'viewer interaction' and LIVE to mobile devices is now closer than ever
For Socialbakers, a social media metrics company, we streamed their day-long seminar from the Bohemian National Hall. With a truly global audience from India, Europe, South, Latin & North America, see some excerpts here:

"Kinderblock 66"...a story about survival

Our film Kinderblock 66 is making great progress, with several recent film festival showings. Earlier in April during Liberation days the documentary was shown to a select audience of survivors in Buchenwald, Germany (see clip on national TV):

...and then invited to the Jerusalem Film Festival with all the producers and survivors attending. In the US, Kinderblock 66 has been shown on smaller festivals and just won 'Best Documentary' in Key West and in Philadelphia for Best Director 'Documentary'. A distribution agreement is secured, bringing the film officially to America. For current updates go to Kinderblock 66

Thank you for your interest!

Lanxess Media and Capital Markets Days

For Germany's PR firm Offspin we produced the media & investor days of Lanxess Chemical Coproration. Calling the show, managing scenery, equipment, crew, schedule and of course client transportation, greeters and gifts where some of the tasks. 
When the journalist charter was rerouted to a different airport then originally planned, because the President unexpectedly came to NY, it was a small scramble... but we managed with a smile. A happy CEO promised to return to NYC some day, we hope so too... watch the clip.

SIEMENS Exider, A road show on rails

...the first exhibition to ever travel the planet...in a singular TRAIN.
A show for clients of Siemens E&A it came from Europe & China before North America via air, yes it was flown to Milwaukee then showed in Chicago first. 14 containers on flat-bed rail cars formed the self-powered trade show, with displays & product simulations, a 3D-movie theater and cafe lounge.
Stops in 16 cities around North America beginning in the Midwest to the East Coast and Mexico then Western US and Canada. We moved the train, built roads along the track, staged opening events with tents, snacks and greeters and managed this entire endeavor. Our German colleagues of OSK kept the train humming and 'in shape'. For sure not your everyday project!
