about us

dascha petuchow
As with all creative minds, my creative potential (of course) has been slumbering within me since my childhood. However, I discovered my enthusiasm for audiovisual storytelling especially during my communication design studies. Starting with editing, I got more and more into writing. I always have my little notebook with me, because as every writer knows: The best ideas come in many places, just not at the desk.

Through my internship semester, various university courses as well as the screenwriting seminar "Club 23" sponsored by HessenFilm, I was able to expand and intensify my knowledge and experience in the field of story development and screenwriting. Since my writing topics are always very close to my heart, I am infinitely happy that after saving and printing the final version, there is still more to come: In my further function as a director, I am fascinated every time the material comes to life together with the actors.

As a student in the field of communication design (B.A.) at the HSRM in Wiesbaden, I had the opportunity to try myself in many creative areas. I finally got stuck in filmmaking.

I'm fascinated by the fact that filmmaking combines many creative trades, from technical know-how to storytelling and image design. But I'm also fascinated by the alternation between solitary conception and the joint realization of the stories on set. My strengths lie in creative understanding and realistic assessment of projects. That's why I grew into the role of a producer almost by myself.

Besides my own material, I have been able to help other young filmmakers from the Rhein- Main area to realize their projects.

Since my youth I am enthusiastic about film and photography. That's why I worked for a year after school in an art house cinema (Rex in Darmstadt) as part of an FSJK.

During a six-month internship semester as part of my communication design studies at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, I worked as an intern for Thomas Kettner in Hamburg.

Since 2017 I have been working as a freelance filmmaker and photographer.

I graduated with a bachelor's degree from RheinMain University in 2020 with my final film „A Short Moment". During my studies I quickly realized that I was interested in very many areas of filmmaking, such as camera work, acting, lighting design, production, writing and especially editing. The beauty of directing is that it combines all these areas and that's why I see it as my field of expertise.

In 2020 and 2021, I made it into hFMA's Hessen Talents with my films "Better Times" in 2019 and „A Short Moment" in 2021.
We develop ideas, not only films.

Exhausting but enormously productive weeks are behind us! With Dascha's short film »Kaugummi« we had our first wrapped project in September. Our most sincere acknowledgement goes to our team: without their support and the great cooperation of everyone involved, we would probably still have to rewrite our shooting schedule every day. Thank you!

Just like »Kaugummi«, our second project »Wir, KINSKI und ich« (We, KINSKI and I), which was shot at the beginning of October, is now in post-production. The experimental theater piece »Wir, KINSKI und ich«, in which Julian is responsible for the cinematic realization of individual scenes, will be premiered this winter, on 16.12.21 in Hamburg. For »Kaugummi«, on the other hand, we're taking a little more time... so stay tuned.
Sincerely, your plotless-team
