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.

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.
Manager Production Office
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.
Head of Production
Since 2020, Florian-Malte Fimpel has complemented the Kinescope Film team in Hamburg and Bremen as head of production. After working in Berlin and Cologne on the Elbe and Weser rivers, the media studies graduate has found a new home.
After graduating, he came into contact with the production work at a Cologne film production company in 2009 as a career starter. Directly infected, he completed an extra-occupational IHK further training as a production manager. Since then, he has worked in this position on a wide variety of national and international television and cinema productions and accompanies projects from the initial idea to the cinema release. As a camera-, cutter- and production assistant before and during his studies, he knows the industry from the bottom up and from different perspectives. During his studies of media sciences, politics, and art history in Marburg and Melbourne he already immersed himself in the film world: as a volunteer at various film festivals, as the founder of a student film club and as a projectionist in a repertory cinema.
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.
Indispensable for the team, because: She can make 30-minute brownies in a quarter of an hour.
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.
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.
