Mad Talk – German-speaking Edition #1
In the first german-speaking episode of our Mad Talk Podcast (English subtitles available), MAD HEIDI director Johannes Hartmann talks with producer Valentin Greutert about the origins of MAD HEIDI and the challenge of producing an exploitation film in Switzerland.
Greutert has been producing feature films and documentaries for over 20 years, including the first Swiss 3D film "One Way Trip 3D", the documentary "Rocksteady - The Roots of Reggae", and the box-office hit "Paradise War – The Story of Bruno Manser".
“We want to do things differently to the existing film distribution model, which works in a way that you need to sell a film in each individual country and then each individual distributor in each country decides when the movie comes out. That completely fragments the world. It boosts piracy because it means that the film is already available in one country but not in another, where people want to see the film. And as a producer, you are completely powerless.” - Valentin Greutert.
