Shooting reenactments for a documentary about James Bond author Ian Fleming challenged us to scout for untracked powder with nice sunlight in a winter with quite poor snowconditions. During Locationscouting with director and skiing DOP Jens Hoffmann we found ideal locations. Our oldschool Telemarkers showed great performace while acting hunting each other, like the Fleming brothers did in the thirties in Kitzbühel in Tirol, Austria. The Austrian Alps play a role then aswell, when007 Mr. James Bond learns to ski, he does that in Kitzbühel.
A movie with a lot of climbing in highalpine regions in the alps. . Italian RAI made it possible to realize this show together with director Robert Dornhelm.Walter Bonattis fight for the top which turns out to be one of the big mountain dramas in the history of Himalaya first ascents.
While Compagnoni and Lacedelli move the camp higher , Bonatti and pakistanian mountaineer Mehdi have to bivouac on 8.100m without tents. By leaving the oxygen bottles to the progressing team they made the ascent possible. Bonatti turned out to become a mountaineer who soloed a lot.

To realise a scene for a well known german tv series we had to make sure for alpine safety for the crew. The location scouting led to this somewhat challenging location in the middle of a forest with a scenic view to the lower alps. While a forestworker is trying to rescue a sea eagles baby he nearly falls off the cliff and gets rescued by a fearless climber, who is the "Förster" .
Alpine safety on set was key, as we were shooting with a crew of more than 40 people on top of a rockwall. Only precise preparation allows to shoot on extreme locations.
A classic german fairytale directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner offered the challenge to find a snowy place in may, sure a location that is not everywhere availale, especially not easy to reach with a big crew with a lot of technical equipment. due to weatherproblems while shooting in romania the crew had to move to the alps to find this amazing place to build the set. building the set required a smart concept and some alpinists with the power to work in this high altitude above 3000 meters to collect stones and move them from one place to another. we moved tons by hand... hard work great film! thanks, we enjoyed the premiere in munich a lot!
Shooting an reenactment for Mt St. Elias, a movie about the longest ski descent. In Alaska in the St. Elias Nationalpark there is this unique possibility to ski from 150000 ft down to the ocean. We arranged a stunt as an reenactment for a skiing accident that happened on one of the past skiing attempts.
