Visit by the Sta­te Secre­ta­ry of the Sta­te of Bran­den­burg, Dr. Grimm

In mid-June, the Sta­te Secre­ta­ry of the Sta­te of Bran­den­burg, Dr. Ben­ja­min Grimm, visi­ted the Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam at the media loca­ti­on in Babels­berg. He was wel­co­med by Rotor Film - the lar­gest gra­ding and mixing stage in Euro­pe. In the impres­si­ve DEFA 70 cine­ma, two start-ups from the Media­Tech Hub Acce­le­ra­tor and Media­Tech Hub Lab also took the oppor­tu­ni­ty for a short pitch: nxt­ba­se pre­sen­ted its Aug­men­ted Rea­li­ty solu­ti­ons for the indus­try and felt its Weara­ble, which is revo­lu­tio­ni­zing the audio market.

A gui­ded tour through the lar­gest film stu­dio in Euro­pe and in the Art Depart­ment of Stu­dio Babels­berg also illus­tra­ted the prac­ti­cal com­bi­na­ti­on of tech­no­lo­gy and craft. A detour to the volu­metric Stu­dio Volu­cap roun­ded off the visit. A spe­cial pro­ject could be direct­ly tried out here using aug­men­ted rea­li­ty: the “Tages­schau 2025”, deve­lo­ped for IFA 2019. The three-dimen­sio­nal ver­si­on of the well-known news pro­gram­me, natu­ral­ly a sober for­mat that lives on authen­ti­ci­ty, show­ed pre­sen­ter Lin­da Zer­va­kis as an authen­tic digi­tal person.

Dr. Grimm was accom­pa­nied by seve­ral Babels­berg actors. The­se included Hol­ger Leh­mann (Mana­ging Direc­tor, Rotor Film), Dr. Carl L. Woeb­cken (CEO, Stu­dio Babels­berg), Hel­ge Jür­gens (Mana­ging Direc­tor, Medi­en­board Ber­lin-Bran­den­burg), Joa­chim Kosack (Mana­ging Direc­tor, UFA), Prof. Dr. Susan­ne Stür­mer (Pre­si­dent, Film Uni­ver­si­ty Babels­berg KON­RAD WOLF), Sven Blie­dung (Mana­ging Direc­tor, Volu­cap) and the Mana­ging Direc­tors of the Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam, Andrea Peters and Peter Effen­berg, as well as the Hub Mana­ger, Andrea Wickleder

In a con­clu­ding round of talks at UFA, one of the oldest film com­pa­nies in Euro­pe and mar­ket lea­der as a film and tele­vi­si­on pro­du­cer in Ger­ma­ny, the cur­rent situa­ti­on and the effects of the Coro­na pan­de­mic on com­pa­nies based here and the loca­ti­on as a who­le were also discussed.
