WRITER / DIRECTOR ALINA PODSCHUN
Alina wants her movies to not just entertain, but at the same time answer fundamental psychological questions. Movies, in her opinion, are nothing more than another research tool optimally suited to exploring how and why people are the way they are.
Her last script, SAMPLE, was awarded an Honourable Mention at New Renaissance Film Festival 2018
PRODUCER THEA HERRMANN
There are two topics particularly able to inspire Thea: movies/movie production and sustainable lifestyle(s). Already holding a degree in Mediamanagement from Cologne, Thea now studies Film Studies in Berlin and in addition is engaged in film production. She can thus look back on experiences in several German and international TV and movie productions. Within METANOIA, she assumes responsibility as a producer, always striving to connect the two topics of particular interest to her. WRITER / CO-PRODUCER VICY OESTERLE
Vicy is a true alrounder in the creative industry; she loves to express herself as an actress and can also draw on experience from working as a narrator and in German TV. With Metanoia, she focuses most on Script development and production. DOP JENS SCHIWECK
Knowing Jens, one could almost think that working for the German TV Station ARD is just his sideline. Jens fills his time with working on as many ambitious and interesting film shoots as he can, making him the go-to guy for any equipment-related questions.
COSTUME DESIGN LINDA-LOU SIEGEL
Linda is the person you go to when you have no time, barely a budget, and still need the characters to look awesome on screen. Her problem-solving skills are legendary and do not only result in a reassured director, but most importantly, in visually stunning costumes that are true to the characters. HAIR AND MAKEUP MELINA JAX a person so knowledgable and confident in makeup and hairstyling is hard to find. Melina’s answer to any daring makeup-request is usually „Sure, no problem“; everything from light daytime makeup to full on Dobby-the-Elf (not kidding) is possible. SETDESIGN JACOB BAUER Jacob brings a calmness and placidity to set that is often missing and yet terribly important in film. His set design is confident and clear – creating an environment optimally suited for the actors to explore.
