TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Slovakia
A cross-media film production about Berlin based restaurants
TV and web series with the Slovakia restaurant platz doch
Vanda Molnár's grandmother was born in Berlin, but she emigrated to Slovakia many years ago because of a big love. The love for cooking is deeply manifested in Vanda's family. Vanda Molnár's mother is an enthusiastic chef and she passed this passion on to her daughter. The funny thing is: Vanda moved from Bratislava to Berlin 16 years ago, right into the footsteps of her grandmother. In Berlin she now runs her restaurant „platz doch!” together with Silvia Pintérová, who was also born in Bratislava. By the way, both were born in the same hospital in 1976, only with one day difference. The two chefs offer Slow Food, inspired by the Slovakian way of cooking. The restaurant has a very beautiful minimalistic design and an open show kitchen, were Vanda and Silvia prepare their tasty dishes.
They serve natural wines from their home country and other regions of Central and Eastern Europe. Vanda regularly visits her home country to buy ingredients from small farmers, organic winegrowers and small organic farms. They get the fresh products from regional small businesses in Berlin and Brandenburg. „platz doch!" is much more than just a place to eat well. The two chefs want to convey food culture from their Slovakian homeland. „platz doch!” Is not only a restaurant, it is much more, a shop, a meeting place where you can make friends and also an event agency. If you like, you can rent the room for pop-up events and celebrations.
Corporate Film: Successful rheumatic therapy with biosimilars
Rheumatism is a disease that has many faces. There are more than a hundred different clinical pictures. Often it is difficult to identify them clearly, but it is so important that a diagnosis is made quickly. Only then rheumatologists can start a personalized treatment. Biological medicines, so-called biopharmaceutical, play an important role in the therapy. They can delay the course of the disease and, above all, relieve pain.
Filming with a patient and rheumatologist in Berlin
For the working group Pro Biosimilars we produced a corporate film about the this subject in August and September. How do biosimilars, the replicas of biopharmaceutical, influence rheumatic diseases? We met a patient in Berlin who has been ill for more than twenty years. She told us impressively how the biosimilars changed her life. We also talked to her rheumatologist who has been prescribing biopharmaceutical and biosimilars for many years.
Corporate film: The FabHaus from Australia made in Poland
Who does not dream of it? A house that will be built in a few weeks, sustainable, energy efficient and environmentally friendly? The German-Australian architect Julia Thomas designed such a house. She calls it FabHaus, the fabulous house. For a long time she has been busy with the design plans, because she wanted her product to be a passive house that matches all the characteristics of green architecture. In Australia, it is currently too expensive to commission such a modular building. Moreover, the Australian craftsmen and engineers are far from having the expertise that distinguishes European home builders, Julia Thomas tells us during our film shooting. Through research and good contacts, the architect discovered a production facility in Poland that theoretically suits her expectations.
Cinematic documentation about the development process
But of course she wanted to experience it practically and travelled to Poland to visit the company. She invited us to accompany her on her first visit in order to document the development process of a FabHaus cinematically. Two days we spent in Kwilcz, filmed the negotiation talks between architect and manufacturer and could win a good impression. In any case, Julia Thomas is enthusiastic and soon it is clear that she wants to have her product made here. The idea: The complete house is fabricated in Europe and shipped to Australia. Within about two days then it is assembled by Our FabBuilder, ready for the clients to move in. From order to completion,Julia Thomas allows six months as a general guide. We are impressed too. Now we just want to see how the first modular building of Julia Thomas is set up in Australia. We are planning this trip for 2020 and are already looking forward to seeing how Our FabHaus will continue.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Cuba
A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants
TV and web series with the Cuban restaurant La Pequena Habana
Finding a restaurant in Berlin that serves good Cuban cuisine was not easy. Through a tip from a chef we know we discovered La Pequeña Habana in Schoeneberg. From the outside rather inconspicuous, the guests can expect an excellent cuisine inside and lots of passion for the gastronomy. Iris Garofalo loves being a host, her husband Eric performs in the kitchen.
For the TV series 50 Kitchens, one city we cooked together the Cuban national dish, Ropa Vieja, a dish made of beef, which is prepared in a special way. But also the avocado salad and the daily fresh fish dishes are absolute delicious. For Iris and Eric with the La pequeña habana a long-desired wish became reality, they told us during the shooting. "Food plays a huge role in Cuba. We are family people. We all like to eat together and we enjoy food. We all come together at the table and tell each other how the day was, talk about everything. No matter what, we enjoy the food.” During our filming, many Cubans ate and dined at the restaurant. A good sign, as we find.
