The creative head, founder and managing director of Kinescope Film is author, director, and editor as well as producer and executive producer for national and international productions. His portfolio includes cross-media formats, daily news coverage, cinema documentaries, and feature film productions as well as show, magazine and cultural formats, fictional and non-fictional series.
Born in Bremen, numerous engagements in film, television and theatre production followed after an extensive education. As an expert and mentor, Greving is involved in various programs for the promotion of young talent and is a member of the documentary film jury of the BKM as well as on the board of directors of the Bundesverband Regie. And because the film is an integral part of his life, he initiated the FILMFEST BREMEN in 2015, which he still shapes today as festival director.
Originally active in the event industry, Kinescope Film captured Marko Drews in the summer of 2018 as manager of the Bremen production office. As a project manager, he has since then been taking care of contract partners and contractual matters as well as accounting and figures. In short: He confidently ensures efficient and relaxed office operations. Before this, the trained event technician studied project management for a few semesters and, as a year-round griller, has been proving what a Natural Born Bremer is for many years.
Having grown up with Pina Bausch's dance theater, the cultural sector is an integral part of the enthusiastic dancer's everyday life and work. Her main area of responsibility at the moment is administration, where she is both cordial and tenacious in ensuring that things run smoothly. But her soft spot is proofreading, and so Janne Scherfer has been reading texts of all kinds at Kinescope Film since 2016: treatments, exposés, or even screenplays. She corrects and notes what seems peculiar to her.
She found her professional home after working in theater, film, and dance projects at Kinescope Film and in Bremen anyway - the Weser always draws her back despite various excursions to more southern regions.
Executive Producer, Head of Production
Kirsten Lukaczik has been working successfully in the world of film and television for more than three decades: initially as an assistant director, then as a recording and production manager, and for many years as a producer for Tatort productions and talk shows, as well as for feature films, children's series, major sporting events, comedy formats and documentaries.
Her wealth of knowledge and experience characterizes the diversity of Kinescope Film, as does her efficient, emphatic and content-driven way of working. In all these years, Kirsten Lukaczik has always remained true to her residence in Bremen, except for longer work excursions to Berlin and Hamburg.
Her curiosity for new formats, projects and challenges drives her every day, even though she only ended up in film by chance through her studies in media education. What a luck!
Janina Sara Hennemann
Since spring 2017 Janina Sara Hennemann has been a producer at Kinescope Film for the areas of story development, conception and realization of fictional material and documentaries for cinema, TV, and video on demand. Fascinated by stories and storytelling, she lives out her passion for producing, always in close cooperation with the creatives and partners.
From 2016 to 2017, the confessed Hamburg native was active as a freelance producer in her hometown and in Berlin, where she was responsible for the overall management of the 10th Reception of the Film Schools and advised projects in material development and financing. Already during her master studies at the Hamburg Media School, which she completed in 2016, she produced three short films that premiered at the Max Ophüls Film Prize in Saarbrücken (SAMIRA) and the International Hofer Film Festival (ALOHA). As a production assistant, she first got a taste of the capital city air for two years, directly after she studied film and television in Hamburg and Mittweida.
As a state-certified producer, Anne Reißer has been the interface between editorial and production at Kinescope since 2020, maintaining an overview even in chaos and mediating in the balancing act between content and implementation.
She set foot in the film industry through the advice of her grandmother and has stayed with it to this day. She began her career with a commercial apprenticeship in television. After her further training as a producer, she implemented various programs: Entertainment formats, such as the successful talk show "3 nach 9", to documentaries.
The graduate in literature, art, and cultural studies joined the team in 2018. She designs optimal working conditions and processes in due time and is the first point of contact for authors, musicians, cameramen, producers, and editors. Her broad range of responsibilities includes the submission of funding applications, requests for film locations, film planning, and content research, and the coordination of post-production.
From 2015 until her move to Kinescope Film, she worked as an editorial assistant at Radio Bremen and Arte. Having acquired a taste for screenwriting during her studies, Mayer has continued to develop her skills in this area. As a student, she was a projectionist for classical and digital film material at the Bremen Film Art Theatres. She has been in love with film since childhood and since she travels a lot, cinemas all over the world are her favorite places.
Licensing, Research and Archive
Enthusiastic about the medium of film, she has been working as a production coordinator for Kinescope Film since January 2018, ensuring coherent processes. Formerly attracted by the glamour of the film world, she successfully studied media sciences, made her first experiences with reality - and remained loyal to the industry. Two years abroad in New York with various internships were followed by two more years as a production assistant and archive coordinator in Hamburg.
Since January 2021, Mareike now manages the licenses of the Kinescope productions. In addition, she not only researches archive material but also clears their rights.
Indispensable for the team, because: She can make 30-minute brownies in a quarter of an hour.
Starting in 2018 as an intern at Filmfest Bremen, the studied media scientist now supports the production coordination of Kinescope Film since December 2019. Among other things, she takes care of the coordinated arrival and departure of the team and cast, organizes filming permits, keeps in touch with the acting agencies, and, despite a broad range of tasks, is so stress-resistant that she is happy to act as a stand-in on the set when needed.
Born in Hessen, she fell in love with the film industry through various internships at film festivals in Braunschweig and Bremen. This has lasted until today and thus significantly longer than her brief romance with law, which was followed by studies in media sciences in Braunschweig, Hamburg, and Athens. As a project coordinator, she has already worked on the cinema productions „Baumbacher Syndrome“, „Vogeler“ and „März“.
For the production assistant and career changer, Kinescope Film has become something of a home since 2016 - alongside Bremen and the Weser Stadium. The contact with the film industry came about through a collaboration with Filmfest Bremen. Once he tasted blood, the creative possibilities of film making, the necessary planning, and production, infected him and made him immune to alternatives. Born in the Bremen area, Jan Strauß previously traveled through the Bremen cultural landscape, including a university degree in leisure sciences.
Active in local politics, he wants to make a difference for Bremen as well as for himself and is currently training at Kinescope Film to become a media designer in image and sound.
In search of an exciting career field, Robin Niemann landed as an intern at Kinescope Film in February 2020. Goal achieved! Since then, the real Bremen boy has been burning for the challenging and varied tasks of film production. In the meantime, the former sociology student has taken up a new course of study: Communication and Media Studies at the University of Bremen. Since the fall of 2020, he has been joining the team as a student trainee and, in addition to the fantastic working atmosphere, appreciates the cookies in the office.
Started as an intern at Kinescope Film in the summer of 2019, she now supports as a permanent student trainee and commutes to Oldenburg for her Master's degree in Integrated Media. Initially believing that pure boredom lurked behind office jobs, the Bremen native has since convinced herself of the opposite: as a future career environment, organizational work in the film industry is at the top of her list. Because of the exciting projects ... or of the nice team at Kinescope Film?
Starting in 2020 as an intern at Kinescope Film, Viktoria Apelt now works as a student trainee in the team. She is particularly fascinated by the complexity of film and series production, and her own part in it gives her a great feeling of happiness.
Bremen is an absolute feel-good place for the student with Russian roots and became her new home in 2000. She left the city for Thüringen while she was studying applied media and communications, which makes her all the happier to be back here - which, in addition to her job, is also due to the summer nights on the family plot and her grandma's strawberry vareniki.
Julia Meyer completed her compulsory internship in a small film production company as part of her business administration studies, and - in no time at all - she caught the film industry bug. Already well-traveled, she appreciates the opportunity to work anywhere in the world and the diversity, variety, and uniqueness of each film project.
Since March 2021, the new Bremen native from NRW has been supporting the Kinescope Film team. Currently, she is already planning her master's degree in Bremen and is satisfying her wanderlust by cooking delicacies from all pots on earth.
