OUR MISSION

The Donkey is all but stubborn, it’ll sink it’s hoofs in the sand only to ensure all is good. Just like we do, since we don’t just take on any project. But, when we decide to, we storm of passionately to realize our projects. We prefer working on our own ideas, we find appropriate authors to develop our stories, and do so with great care, rather than high tempo. Whether it be movies, series, or documentaries, with German, European or international audiences, when we’re convinced we found a story that should be told, we will find the the right way to tell it.
