Somewhere Else Tomorrow by Daniel Rintz

A day-dreamer rides around the world on a motorcycle, surviving only on money he makes along the way, until he finds what he wasn’t even looking for. In autumn 2019 finally it will open in the cinemas. I supported Daniel as a dialect coach. Great joy for me.

Für die Internationalen Kurzfilmtage in Winterthur 2019

bin ich als Coach bei der Künstlerbegegnung zwischen Autoren, Produzenten, Gamern, Schauspielern… und ihren kreativen Prozessen aus der südlichen Region Deutschlands und Österreich und Schweiz mit dabei. Die verschiedenen Künstler zusammen zu erleben, was sie sich ausdenken und umsetzen finde ich mega spannend.
