And now it’s back to waiting!

Screenplay Fund from Hamburg

The Film Fund Hamburg/Schleswig-Holstein has awarded me a grant for creating the series concept and screenplay development of JOHNNY SINCLAIR: GHOST HUNTER
in their “High End” section. Hamburg-based Youngfilms is producing the animated fantasy action series, for which I’m currently adapting Sabine Städing’s children’s book series – which in turn is a child-friendly spin-off of JOHN SINCLAIR, one of the world’s most successful and long-running series of penny dreadful novellas. I’m looking forward to a collaborative creative process surrounded by ghosts, monsters, mythical creatures, with Johnny and his friends in the Scottish Highlands – while writing in English.


Screenplay Fund from Nordmedia

The Lower Saxony film fund nordmedia has awarded me a screenplay grant for
DON’T HAVE A COW, COMRADE, produced by Junifilm (Hanover) and SkalarFilm (Hamburg). This Cold War comedy set in 1981 is based on a true anecdote from the inner German border, separating the Eastern Bloc from the Western World.
