ABOUT SCHURKENSTART FILM
Schurkenstart Film is a film production that specializes in comedy and interactive storytelling. We believe that if you want to reach your audience, you have to entertain them. Our works can be funny, smart, playful, ironic our sincere, but they always have to be entertaining. As long as the audience has a great time, we did a good job. That’s why our favorite thing is comedy, because here you get your feedback immediately – if the audience laughs, it works.
We also like to explore the boundaries of the medium film, therefore we engage in the field of interactive films, where the stories come to live and the passive observer becomes an active part of the story.
We received several prices for our work. In 2016 we were awarded »Kreativpioniere
Niedersachsen« by the lower saxony ministry of economy, as well as »Kultur-und Kreativpiloten Deutschland« by the German government.
Our interactive online-experience for the thriller novel »Das Paket« by Sebastian Fitzek was awarded the BuchMarkt Award for the best bestseller marketing.
With one of our latest project, the interactive drama »being lisa« we have won the writer’s camp of the film festival »wendlandshorts« and are getting funded by Nordmedia.
