"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 below to play clip of German 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 Days for Investors & Press

For PR firm Offspin we produced media & investor days for Lanxess Chemical Coproration. Location management, calling the show, scenery/equipment/crew/photography and client transfers, where just some of our mandates. Watch a slide show of the events at the Bohemian National Hall:  
Little side story: When the incoming charter flight for the media on show day was rerouted surprisingly because of a sudden Presidential visit, no small scramble ensued! But we managed...all Limos quickly transferred from JFK to LGA and with a very happy CEO who promised to come back to New York one day!

SIEMENS Exider, A road show on rails

...the first exhibition to ever travel the 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!

Leica and Mercedes-Benz

...have both an important date in common: The world launch of the Leica M camera and Gullwing Mercedes 300 SL in 1954 in New York City. For the anniversary we produced a fashion and lifestyle photo shoot for a select group of journalists and armed them with Leica product. Just like any day we chased the light for that New York look & feel...with great success!
