POST-PRODUCTION

Small, but effective team: While Jürgen Schulz, sound magician, prepares all the foley and dialogues we are doing final editing, color grading and footage implementation. Still a lot of work, especially for this 2-man-army, but it’s for the animals and therefore night turns to day 🙂

MEETING JANE GOODALL…

It’s a sunny morning in Vienna, Austria and I am on my way to the British Embassy where we will meet legendary and inspiring Dr. Jane Goodall. Doris Schreyvogel of Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) Austria welcomes us and some instants later, Dr. Goodall appears and we talk about human arrogance towards animals, about the togetherness…

VEGETARIAN TORINO

Italian’s city of Torino has declared itself ‚vegetarian city‘ since Chiara Appendino and Stefania Giannuzzi (who we interviewed) have become responsible for administration. Vegan street festivals, a vegetarian day and – most important – the ‚raising of the awareness towards animal treatment‘ are on schedule.

Salzburg & Helmut

Salzburg welcomes us with a Pegasus and a unicorn. Lots of energy that flows even faster when we meet Helmut F. Kaplan, one of the leading animal right philosophers of our time. ‚Are humans the crown of creation?‘, ‚Do animals have a moral?‘ and many more questions are answered with creative sincerity and we look…

PAUL WATSON (!)

„We’re on a spaceship and we kill the crew.“ Direct and clear words from Paul Watson who I meet in his house in snowy Vermont for our interview. The founder of Sea Shepherd fights for the animals with every inch of his body, personality and mindforce. Thank you, life, for letting me meet this guy.

VOICE TALENT

BELLA KRIEGER of CRAWFORD TALENTS (Berlin) will be our speaker for the „voice of the animals“. Our first call (me from Dublin airport where I changed planes to access Paul Watson’s home in Vermont) convinced me, regardless of bad connection and howling people (St. Patrick’s day this day) around. Looking forward to the recording sessions…

COPERNIKA

Dogs, dogs, dogs. All in good shape, all happy to see us, all just admirable. A three-legged friend approaches me and licks the camera, my face and then lies down and grunts happily. ‚Copernika‘ of Germanys ‚Pro Animale für Tiere in Not e.V.‘ has the dogs in ‚group living‘. They have lots of space to…

ANIMALS‘ ANGELS

Christa Blanke, founder of Animals‘ Angels. A truly inspiring person and so full of love. We stay for the day and are welcome with a full vegan breakfast! Check Animals‘ Angels newest project, the naming of more than 1’000 animals that have died on transports: www.animalmemorial.org

PETA GERMANY

VEGAN HEADCHEF

Björn Moschinski went vegan decades ago because of an article in Germany’s teenager journal „BRAVO“. Since, he helped to introduce vegan restaurants, wrote books on vegan cuisine and much more. An animal friend, 100% and full of heart energy. www.bjoernmoschinski.de 

VECINOS…

In July, 2015, mayor Pedro Perez Espinosa decided Trigueros Del Valle (near Madrid in Spain) to be the first village that declares their cats & dogs ‚vecinos‘, neighbors. Together with Mercedes Cano Herrera and Mariano Vallecillo, they elaborated a law that protects they inhuman neighbors from violence and abuse. We stay for a whole week…
