In January 2010, writer and director Oliver Kyr and producer Joachim Maurer arrived in Berlin with a screenplay, and a vision: shoot an entire movie in just a month, and finish editing by the end of the year.
Declined financial backing by both the funding institutions and the broadcasters, they did what everyone in their situation would do: shoot the movie anyway.
The result is "The Big Black", a dark love story - in many respects. A journey through doubt and failure, for both the fictional characters as well as the production team, and a truly independent production.
"The Big Black" will be released in cinemas and on DVD in 2011. An exclusive preview of the film's first five minutes is promised for the talk.

Head. Hands. Heart. We believe that there is a real connection between craftsmanship and communication.
As information and intelligence becomes the domain of computers, society will place more value on the one human ability that cannot be automated: Emotions.
People want to experience beauty, enjoy one’s work, feel passion, they want to interact with each other. We all want.
That’s why we believe that the future of brands is interaction, not commodity. It’s not something you buy, but something you participate in.
