After spending 30 years as a freelance production manager for a wide variety of production houses and broadcasters, documentaries, corporate films, music events, commercial spots, daily soaps, live events, factual and fiction productions, we set up Dragonsheart-Freeman-Pictures GmbH.

After school I started studying economics, business administration and law. At the same time I started working on documentaries and a varied TV repertoire. I had mastered the commercial and legal aspects of production work and also the business administration aspects of “on time on budget producing” and all the aspects and importance of "chain of title".
Since 1998 I have created a network of private and public sector broadcasting companies as well as working with national and international producers and am involved in different types of productions both factual and fiction – e.g. those transmitted daily, do­cu­men­taries, weekly series and mini-series, TV-films and event productions.

My extensive knowledge and experience in the commercial field as well as my understanding of both, the creative and technical requirements of the film and TV world have led to the implementation of my results-oriented ideas, thus yielding the "best of both worlds".

Brief Summary
Antje Stanko, born November 19, 1964

My passion for the moving picture began right after my studies (economic sciences and law).

In 35 years I have built up a network of private and public broadcasters as well as national and international production companies.

My profound economic and media law knowledge and my experience in budgeting and negotiation, the understanding of creative needs and technical requirements, lead to a result-responsible implementation and the challenging "best of both worlds".
