The event

30 degrees, wet cameras and days of seasickness. It was the journey of our lives: We went to Antarctica to find out if you can fulfill the craziest dreams if you just want it hard enough. Shooting a movie in Antarctica - with ups and downs. The result is a 97-minute travel documentary. This talk is about the many challenges that awaited us as filmmakers in this project and trying it anyway!

Michael Ginzburg

Michael (29) is an adventurer, specialty - polar regions! Despite seven continents and several full passports, his enthusiasm cannot be taken away. As a photo and video journalist he prefers to share them in pictures - reported for National Geographic from Greenland at the age of 21. Other international media followed. As expedition leader for adventurers and TV productions from all over the world, he is used where the ADAC no longer comes to the rescue. For PROJECT: ANTARKTIS Michael is also the life insurance company. He makes sure that the team comes back - in whole pieces!

Tim David Müller-Zitke

Tim still can't put his profession into words: Probably the terms film producer, photographer or also "Eierlegende Wollmilchsau" are most likely to apply. But at only 24 years of age, he has already made his two grannies proud quite often: Collaboration on a Hollywood blockbuster, own documentaries and virtual reality films and lectures at the elite universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Oh yes - up to now all this has been without a vocational qualification: Tim would have been a bachelor of digital media production at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven if he hadn't been interrupted by exciting, own projects like PROJEKT: ANTARKTIS...

Dennis Vogt

For Dennis (24), hanging on a belt from an airplane and filming - or being stuck in a 30-meter deep mine shaft, somewhere in Africa, is no reason to worry. Only when the battery is empty or the card is full does panic break out. A cameraman and editor like he is in the book, who has long since taken off with his own documentaries and commercials in the advertising film industry. Dennis also "lingers" in the study of digital media production. He never gets boring: With his (serious) ideas "I just let myself fall into the[0 degree cold] water and you film it then", he keeps the team at PROJEKT: ANTARKTIS always on the go.
