It includes a lot of pseudo-science, conspiracy theories and so called "blue book" knowledge (all the weird and awkward secrets from those times nobody wants to talk about and has been kept from the schoolbooks) - but not too comical or unrealistic. So if UFOs come up, it would never be clear whether it is true or not.It is told from the view of a middle aged professor (half german descent) turned officer, an expert of the US armed forces on the subject of german ideology, paganism and occultism, as he uncovers a dark secret that goes far beyond the power of the Nazis.

  • Old Pals

    Old Pals Comedy Drama Two very old friends – now in a hate-relationship, for reasons unknown and long forgotten – meet every day in the park, where they tell each other stories of their youth together, which the audience sees as flashbacks. As they constantly change the stories, recall events differently, or correct each other, the flashbacks change too, making the serious stories of war, loss and friendship a weird surreal and funny trip through the mind of two old friends that gradually and very slowly rediscover their long lost friendship. The series’ main gimmick is the on the spot changes of the flashbacks that almost break the fourth wall. The characters in the memories are often just as surprised with the sudden changes as the audience, or even the narrators themselves. The young counterparts of the two old friends, might find they are on top of a snowy mountain at one second, just to be transported into the desert the next, as one narrator is correcting the story of the other.

  • Phat 'n Phreaky

    Phat 'n Phreaky Comedy Phat ‘n Phreaky is a comedy series about two nerds, living in the house of the short stupid one’s grandmother. They try to be cool and up on top, but constantly fail, as they navigate through the hard life of suburban slackerdom; they try to be gangster, hipsters, potheads, jocks, geeks or anything else that might get them laid, but usually just end up getting into trouble. A silly, funny and geeky mix of sub-cultural gags and memes, paired with ridiculous nerdy stories of games, drugs and iTunes.

  • Professionals

    Professionals Action Adventure Comedy Crime In this series, we follow two best friends, who decided a long time ago to become like their all time favorite movie heroes Jules and Vincent from their all time favorite movie Pulp Fiction, and to pursue the life of professional criminals. This satire is shot in a specific style in which the main plot and action is happening in the background, while the two leads discuss everyday things from deep philosophical conundrums to mundane everyday stuff in the foreground, as they kill, interrogate or beat people, rob, steal or commit other crimes. And even as a big mobster, the feds and several of the worlds best hitmen are after them, their foreground discourse never stops, nor ends. It is a critical, tongue-in-cheek observation on how pop-culture and urban knowledge, internet realities and the media influence our perception of the world and ourselves in it.

  • Barbwire

    Barbwire Drama Historical Barbwire is a tragic and ultimately futile love story between a young and newly appointed SS officer and an adolescent Jewish girl in the Nazi work camp Mauthausen; in the foreground of death, destruction, rape and abuse, they find unexpected feelings for each other. A highly controversial look at a topic almost never mentioned, the role of women in concentration camps. Rape, sexual abuse, prostitution and affairs during the days of the ‘final solution’ and how it affected the people involved.A story worth telling as a testament to the many female victims of the NS regime; but also a daring exploration into the emotional responsibility on the other side of the barbed wire. This would be done with a lot of sensitivity, but brutally honest, without playing favors. The imagery would be a mix of death and beauty, with a lot of grey tones and rough contrast, but emotional blooming.

  • Lines

    Lines Action Adventure Fantasy This is the story of five groups of heroes separated by time and ages, each one trying to save their own world. At first these stories do not seem to be attached to each other, but in the fourth episode/season, we start to realize that these stories are interconnected. At the same time the groups, who until now have embarked on their very own journey, they too now come to realize that they are inadvertently connected to each other, and that in the final moments, the last episode (or season, if this should be made a series), they will need to be in sync, as they all perform the rites of eons, at a certain constellation of the stars.Each plot arch has its own style, own flow and texture, based in five very different moments in the history and future of humans, spread over 46 thousand years and all around the globe. Time is not a linear phenomenon, but influenced at the present, by the past and future alike. This would be a monumental project with a lot of marketing potential. The aim would be to create a cult series of this time.

  • The Army

    The Army Drama Historical Romance ’The Army’ is about a young soldier serving in the first emperor of china’s personal army, which then is made into the famous terracotta warriors. He befriends the daughter of one of the many sculptors that are hired for this momentous task, and falls for her, while her father, a former soldier and enemy to the new empire, does not approve.As the story of the young soldier’s love develops, we see the lives, hopes and dreams of the warriors that still live, as eternal stone, in a cave mostly standing, some fallen, some broken and all of them, long forgotten. This movie is primarily a look on the time and events that involve the creation of the Stone Guards and who they might have been.The movie starts with the discovery of the warriors in our times, from where it transitions into the times of the Han dynasty. It becomes a close up into the life of a few among the 6000 that served one of the most influential men in Chinese history, Qin Shihuangdi, the first Emperor of China; usually known for conquest, genius and his growing madness. Rich on history and beautiful imagery.

  • Commune
