We are a goup of film enthusiasts, who call ourselves "FilmFreaks".
The group was formed in 2012, shortly after we finished a Film course at the VHS in München, Germany. We made a short film during the course and we enjoyed it so much, that we decided to continue making films and other video-based material.
Over the past four years, we have produced three short films, two music videos, two advertisements, a Ballet performance DVD, five "About Me" Showreel videos and we are currently editing yet another Short Film, to be released in 2016.
Do you want to create multi-media content, but you don't have the equipment, experience or time to do it yourself?
We could help you out! Just drop us an email, describing your requirements, and we'll get back to you with a proposal.
The FilmFreaks is an "open" group, which means that anyone can join us, as long as you are as passionate about Filmmaking, as we are!
We love telling stories in a visually captivating manner and we are constantly learning how to do this in more creative ways.
If you have stories to tell, or the interest and skills to tell them, may it be through writing scripts, acting or filming, then we want to hear from you!

We had a very productive day, scouting for suitable locations to shoot "The Hitchhiker". We found a nice long tunnel in Austria
and a highway rest area close to the border, that should work fine. Next on our scouting list is a nice flat and an old graveyard... any ideas?
It should be around southern Germany or Austria. If we use the place that you suggested, then we will put your name in the Credits of the film!
