In the organizer's words:

You want to work in film, but you don't yet know exactly what, where and how?

The career field in this area is at least as diverse as your watchlist on Disney+ and just as exciting as the next season of "Stranger Things". NextGen Media Day is all yours! Especially if you have no idea what you actually expect from yourself and your future. Together with our cooperation partners of the Young Talent Day, Bildundtonfabrik, eitelsonnenschein, RTL, UFA, KölnBusiness, the Cologne Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the ZAV / Federal Employment Agency, we will give you the ultimate sneak peek into a future in series(es). And to trades that are at least as exciting as they sound.

The program:

14.00-14.45 Discussion round: Opportunities & possibilities for training in TV and series production

All beginnings are difficult? No, it doesn't have to be! In an open discussion round, industry professionals Hans-Peter Heineking (KölnBusiness), Petra Machacek (RTL), Daniela Nickel (btf), Annette Kärcher (UFA) and Sybille Steinfartz (ZAV/Bundesagentur für Arbeit) will share their experiences with you.

15.15 - 16.45 Case Study with Eitelsonnenschein/ Syrreal

But what does it all look like in practice? Exactly like this! The production team from eitelsonnenschein (Grimme Prize-nominated for "Andere Eltern") will let you in on their work for a top-secret new high-end comedy series. With exclusive insights into the work of the individual trades responsible for the series' fantastic special effects, among other things.

17.00 - 17.45 Food Design

17.45 - 18.15 Foley Art

18.15 - 19.00 SFX Make-Up

Have you ever heard of Foley Artists? Or do you know what marzipan has to do with meat? How do you turn Martina Hill into Angela Merkel or Max Giermann into Jogi Löw? Food designer Daniel Brodt, foley artist Dieter Hebben and SFX make-up artist Sarah Wirtz and Janine Hohmann will demonstrate these rather unusual professions on site and talk about their work in well-known film and show formats. This will give you an idea of what else is possible outside of the regular film professions...
