I developed 8-Bit computer games in the 90s, studied computer science later and got serious about filmmaking in 2005. My first movie caused sudden national interest in Germany, as the first Open Source movie. Thomas Bechholds, friend and musican from my first film project, and I then founded VEB FILM Leipzig – an Open Source Film Netlabel.
I have been working on the second feature film “The Last Drug” since then, with up to 20 Free Culture- & film enthusiasts joining me on this Open Source Sci-Fi film project and I was also pretty busy representing our ideas on events related to Open Source, Net Culture and Digital Culture in Germany.
With a $450,000 budget, The Last Drug is the most expensive Open Source film so far and lots of artists (including us!) are curious about how this project will work out.
