FM - Award-winning Stefan Gieren proofs First Motion's sense for competence and innovation

With his crossmedia project SUPERHERO-BLOG Hamburg-based up-and-coming producer Stefan Gieren convinced First Motion and its partners during the program's first run: Together the project about an ambitioned superhero intern has been developed in 2010.

2011 is the year in which First Motion's keen sense of talent, competence and commitment is validated by various events: Two weeks ago we informed you that Stefan Gieren won one of the Student Academy Awards of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood with his postgraduate production RAJU, directed by Max Zähle, his former co-student at the Hamburg Media School. The award ceremony will be held on 11th June 2011.
As if that were not good enough, yesterday the jury of the Studio Hamburg Newcomer Award voted the same RAJU to be the best shortfilm production in 2011.

"We are very excited to experience Stefan Gieren as such a successful content producer and incubator within the av-industry," claims Till Hardy, project manager of First Motion.
