Looking for Producer(s): Low-Budget Narrative Feature Film / HFBK Hamburg

Hello! My name is William Wrubel and I’m a US-born filmmaker from New York City, currently doing my masters at HFBK Hamburg and studying under director Angela Schanelec. I’m planning to shoot my Abschluss film this coming August here in Hamburg, and am now building a team of producers to come on board. As stated in the post title, the film is low-budget and will therefore be a bit of a scrappy endeavor. So I’m looking for people who have the sincere interest in working on a truly independent film and gaining some invaluable experience along the way, both on-set and during pre-production. I’ve put the long synopsis for the film below. If you’re at all interested please send me an email and we can talk further. I’m very much looking forward to hearing from you!




Flora has gone to America, leaving Alexander behind. Alexander rents Flora’s old flat to Elit, who has just arrived from Istanbul. That night, Elit meets Benni. They go home together, but Benni is still in the process of breaking up with his longtime girlfriend, Caro. Abruptly, one year passes, and we notice that everything has changed.

Time jumps both forwards and backwards, characters cross paths with each other by chance, families come together and fall apart, relationships begin and end, some people become sick while others grow bored and worry about where they’ll move to next.

A narrative film made up of discrete situations, encounters, dialogues and silences; 
cafés, parks, street corners and train stations.

An ecology of lovers. The lives of a few young people in a small city.
