Andreas Rochholl

CEO & Founder

Following is the best way to lead. Co-creation is the essential transformation of the old idea of a single leader and works best with honesty. My favourite way of storytelling is from person to person, with all the media available.

CEO & Founder

I love telling stories on a larger scale! Film mainly has to entertain and should not simply be “art”. I’m what you’d call a film-purist: A decade of experience brought out my strong cinematic storytelling.
