WELCOME TO OUR FEATURE FILM PAGE!

In 2020, the combination of a creative and a producer gave rise to the company Tidewater Pictures, based in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Founded by Paula Elina Klossner and Stephan Buske, the company develops and produces national and international feature films and series. With the right feel for social relevance, the goal of the young production company is to entertain, inspire and move its audience continuously and sustainably.

Our passion for fictional projects gives us new motivation very day. Meanwhile, we benefit from a fantastic network which allows us to build a strong team for each individual project. Our films aim to capture special moments in life and carry the magic of moving pictures.

Since this year we are member of the German Producers Association (Produzentenverband e.V.) and are also involved in the Producers Association of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
