BERLIN — Road Movies co-founder Ulrich Felsberg has stepped down from his post as chairman of film production and licensing at parent company Das Werk to concentrate on Road Movies’ activities.
Felsberg, who founded Das Werk, a leading German post-production house, together with Wim Wenders, will be relocating to L.A. in August to better oversee the company’s production and sales activities.
Currently, Road Movies is developing eight projects including pics from helmers Wim Wenders, Spike Lee, Mike Figgis, German thesp Armin Mueller-Stahl and Ken Loach. Felsberg will continue to be an advisor to Das Werk.
Company also appointed Jonathan M. Kramer, head of Das Werk subsid Promark Entertainment, to head its new North American content division.
Pau Gambus, head of Das Werks Spanish post-production facility EnEfecto, has been named head of post-production for Southern Europe while Das Werk co-founder Stefan Jonas has been put in charge of sales. Felsberg will also oversee European content.
Since going public, Das Werk has rapidly expanded both on the production and post-production side, buying into companies across Europe and in North America, where it owns Centropolis Effects.
