Use of biosimilars in rheumatic diseases

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

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 and web series with the Laotian restaurant Chez Dang

Hao Nguyn does not remember her first years in Laos, but she knows her roots, that's important to her. "Without roots, you are not stable, you do not have both feet on the ground," tells us the owner of the restaurant Chez Dang during our shooting for the series 50 kitchens, one city. Food is a very important root for her. That’s why It is not surprising that Hao opens a restaurant. Here we prepared a papaya salad. It is characterized by spiciness and a very own taste, typical of the Laotian cuisine. "There are many specialties that are unsuitable for Europeans, because they smell and taste extremely," Hao tells us as well.

She also adapted the papaya salad a little bit for her German guests, otherwise no one would order it, she says and smiles.

TV and web series with the Swiss restaurant Restaurant 44

André Egger unites two hearts in his chest, the German and the Swiss. In the kitchen, however, the latter predominates, which is mainly due to his grandparents who were based in Friborg in Switzerland, where he spent a lot of time as a child and teenager and where he regularly goes. Of course, we also cook a very typical Swiss dish for the series 50 kitchens, one city: Züri Gschätzlets with veal in a white wine and mushroom cream sauce, with Rösti. They have to be fried in a lot of butter. Butter is very important at all, says the Chef de Cuisine in the Restaurant 44. „Butter enhances the flavor and must not be missing in any good kitchen."

In Switzerland, André Egger appreciates the virtues of punctuality, quality, commitment and perhaps also a little bit the cleanliness. In Berlin he loves the craziness, the creativity and the wild passion of people. "The first few months were a huge culture shock," Eggers admits and smiles. In the meantime, he and his family have settled in and they want to stay.

Film production TV Series: Masterpieces Revisited

Leonardo Da Vinci' “Mona Lisa”

Leonardo Da Vinci's painting 'La Gioconda' better known as the Mona Lisa, has been fascinating art lovers over the centuries. Painted in the early 16th century, it rose to worldwide fame when it was stolen in 1911.

Concept

Ten-part TV series on behalf of Deutsche Welle | euromaxx

A journey through Europe to the icons the history of art

Ten paintings that everyone knows. Ten painters and their biographies. Ten masterpieces of art history. Hundreds of thousands times quoted, reproduced and received. In the series "Masterpieces Revisited" we travel to the most famous museums in Europe, show their most famous works and try a new approach to each.

What are the characteristics of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa to be an icon? Or the scream of Edvard Munch? Advertisers, designers, artists and art historians tell us why the old masterpieces are still very modern. They show us their interpretations and talk with us about their motivations.

In the ten-part TV series "Masterpieces Revisited" the Berlin film production Basiliscus Film dedicates ten pictures on behalf of Deutsche Welle, which gained cult status and our camera team made an extraordinary journey across Europe to the most famous paintings in art history.

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.

The film that we produced about Dany Hok has a very special meaning for us. On the one side the Cambodian was the first one we filmed for 50 kitchens, one city in June 2016. On the other side, his life story touched us deeply. That Dany trusted us and shared his story with us is not quite self-evident. All the more we would like to say thank you again. And if you would like to taste the authentic cuisine of Cambodia in Berlin, Danys restaurant Angkor Wat in Moabit is highly recommended. One more advice: Amok Trey tastes delicious.

TV and web series with the irish chef Alan Micks

From rags to becoming a chef de cuisine, this could be the headline for a portrait of Alan Micks. The Irishman remarked on a summer job that he has an extraordinary talent in food preparation. And we also recognized this immediately, as we meet the chef in the Restaurant Michelberger for the shooting of 50 kitchens, one city. He prepared grilled mackerel BLT with winkles and horseradish for us. Alan tells us that the mackerel keeps very special memories for him. ”There were always some trips to the coast with some friends and family or neighbors, when you went fishing and you did not get a mackerel the nit was a bad day. It is pretty available.” Otherwise, Irish cuisine is not necessarily known for culinary highlights. When we confronted Alan with this thesis, he insists that there is very good food in Ireland and more and more focus is placed on it. Very good and down to earth. Alan Micks proves it every day.

TV and web series with the Indonesian restaurant tuk tuk

Christian Adelius Restaurant tuk tuk is not easy to find in a small street in Schoeneberg. But I would say that every Indonesian living in the city knows it. Here Christian Adelius prepares very traditional food, which is why the Indonesian ambassador also likes to come to dinner. "It is important that we bring together the authenticity of Indonesian cuisine and the desire of Europeans. In Indonesia, for example, you eat very differently than in Germany, by hand and mostly lukewarm. Of course that does not work in Berlin. Here we need cutlery and the dish must be fresh and warm," reveals Christian during the filming for 50 kitchens, one city. In 2012, the host took over Berlin's longest-serving Indonesian restaurant from friends. Meanwhile he knows the tastes of his guests very well.
