Flame Media group CEO and founder John Caldon commented: “I am very pleased that Christian Böhler and Thorsten Lork are joining the Flame group. Their expertise will help us further expand our connections in the German-speaking market”.
Christian Böhler added: “We are looking forward to bringing together outstanding ideas, talented producers and co-pro partners to create high-quality productions for our customers. The German-speaking market is promising and increasingly important for international co-productions".
Christian and Thorsten will be presenting their latest slate at MIPCOM in October.
