Christopher Büchele


was born in Munich in 1973 and started writing stage plays in Primary School. No wonder he grew to love film and series as much as the written word. After studying history and politics in Munich, he worked as editor (in chief) for several music- and entertainment magazines. This led to him visiting Europe’s big film festivals as a journalist as well as consultant for local film distributors. In 2012 he founded his own agency tiptab GmbH, working as editor, author and consultant. With his colleagues he started pioneering a young digital publishing market (the ipad-magazine “it*s”), in 2015 he was one of the founders of Germanys first series festival Seriencamp in Munich. You can hear him talk to his colleague Gerhard Maier about series (and film) regularly. Their podcast “Sehr Sehr Serien” can be found on all well curated streaming portals.

Daniel Vogelmann


is a Munich based writer & director. He studied at Munich filmschool. His horror short „Wilt” has been seen and awarded all around the globe. It even won the very first Deadline Award, here in Landshut, which he is mighty proud of.

2017 he graduated with “Hard Way” – a genre-bending Action Musical, which has been nominated at the prestigious First Steps Awards. It played over 60 festivals worldwide and won numerous awards.

Since his graduation Daniel has been directing – mostly funny – commercials for brands like McDonald’s, MediaMarkt and Kosmos. Also, he writes and develops movies for ZDF, Ufa Fiction, Rat Pack and others.

Daniel’s second love is music. With his band “The Exploding Voids”, he made the title theme for the highly praised show “Hindafing”.

As a freelance filmmaker, he works primarily in post-production, including at the Embassy of Dreams, Heimatfilm, BerghausWöbke Filmproduktion and Hager Moss Film. He regularly gives workshops, seminars and lectures, among others at the University of Television and Film, Macromedia, Swiss Television and the Goethe Institute. In cooperation with the Kirch Foundation and the Bünemann Foundation, he also brings school classes closer to cinema in all its diversity with age-appropriate workshops.
