  • SXULLS - Der Traum von Olympia
    +++ New Project +++
    With the transmedial film project "SXULLS - Row to Tokio" I once again accompany German top athletes in their attempt to fulfill their dream of participating in the Olympics. The aim of the project is to make the merciless selection of the best German rowers visible and tangible. In addition to the already launched web series on www.sxulls.de, the project can also be seen as a multi-part documentary series on ZDF.

  • Wellenbrecherinnen - Im Ruderboot über den Atlantik
    Meike, Cätschi, Steffi and Timna are facing the challenge of their lives: the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. The four women want to be the first German team to take part in the toughest rowing race in the world and cross the Atlantic in a rowing boat. Extreme conditions await them on their 5,000-kilometre journey from La Gomera to the Caribbean island of Antigua: metre-high waves, scorching heat and merciless storms. But the real struggle of the four women begins long before they set off on their dangerous adventure.
