We believe in the blazing bonfire of a creative smithy, in filmmakers, who touch the audience, make people laugh and cry and maybe – transmit a message.
Cuckoo Clock Entertainment ® GmbH & Co. KG was founded by experienced producer-writer Raoul Reinert for the historical feature Lessons of a Dream (Dir. Sebastian Grobler) with Daniel Brühl in the leading role – the entertaining story, how, in 1874, football made it to Germany against all odds (3 German Film Award nominations, 10 international awards, sold to 80 countries, over 110 TV screenings).
Cuckoo Clock creates packages for cinema, TV/VoD and produces low, medium and high budgeted films like the music documentary kollektiv22 (16 x Germany – Hamburg) with German Film Award winner Özgür Yildirim for ARD/NDR and the German prime-time winner TV-Thriller-miniseries Dengler with multiple German Film, TV and Grimme Award winner Lars Kraume, German Film Award Winning actors Ronald Zehrfeld and Birgit Minichmayr for ZDF – adaptations of the bestselling books of Crime Award Winner Wolfgang Schorlau. Or the German Comedy Award Winner series Jennifer- longing for better from director Lars Jessen with Comedy Award Winners Olli Dittrich and Claas Heufer-Umlauf or such as the Finnish-German feature comedy The Grump – In Search of an Escort from Mika Kaurismäki.
