Hessian Broadcasting

At HR (Hessische Rundfunk – Hessian Broadcasting) the editorial department responsible of “TV drama and feature film” disposes over a “tiny budget” for producing short films as part of the general promotion of young talent. This has resulted in co-productions with the “Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg” (Film Academy of Baden-Wuerttemberg), for example the short films “Always crashing in the same car” by Marcus Weiler (D 2001), “Shadowman” by Phillip Stennert (D 2001) and most recently “Das Zeitbombenprinzip” by Christof Reiling (D 2003). The short films produced by HR with a total of three productions in so many years their output could be considered quite ‘exclusive’.
