Journalistic films for television and cinema

TV reports with high standards
A reportage is emotional. It is always based on in-depth research, clear observations, interviews and comments. It mixes the subjective view of the filmmaker with facts and well-edited information. The spectators become eyewitnesses to a cinematic reality. We love television reports because they let us immerse ourselves in another world for a longer time. We as filmmakers and journalists always go on an expedition. The best part of this journey is to be surprised by the stories that life tells.
Documentation on relevant topics
A film documentary is probably the supreme discipline in journalism. It places a topic in a larger context, always keeping the objective view. As with the reportage, the documentation requires in-depth research. Sometimes it works additively with archive footage, photos and other documents to tell a comprehensive story. Interviews ensure authenticity. The documentation is closely related to current events, but has a thematically wide range. In a documentation, we as journalists always trace a certain theme and reproduce what we find. We love this work. It is a challenge and gives us the chance to sharpen our view of the world.

The meaning of our name
Time and time again customers and other interested people ask us, why we name our enterprise Basiliscus Film? Then the founder of Basiliscus Film tells his very personal story.
„In my youth in the former GDR, since I was 12 I have been interested in animals of all kinds. While it was initially still fish in the aquarium, it became quite fast more exotic and I lay my focus on snakes and lizards, I increased feed insects, praying mantis and hunting spiders. My love for nature and the creatures of this earth developed during this time and remains an important part of my personality up to today. The Basiliscus Plumifrons, or the frontal lobe Basilisk is an iguana, living in the trees, which is native to the rainforests of Central America, and was one of the species that I bred in my terrarium. I was especially proud of the Basilisks, because it was not so easy to get to these animals in the GDR. I have chosen this name in honor of this Basilisk and the remote time.
It was only later that I learned that the Basilisk was also a mythological creature, and since the Middle Ages it has appeared in various interpretations and illustrations as an allegorical symbolic figure."
