Context
Amber Artworks – creative film is a creative workshop dedicated to developing and producing films. As well as working on story and script development, Amber Artworks provides complete production designs (including set-, costumes-, props- and creature designs), story boards and animatics. We draw upon a pool of film professionals to fill all important team positions. During production, Amber Artworks supplies the director, art director, editor and animation. Depending on the project, we also work as a producer or co-producer, taking care of all pre-production needs. Amber Artworks – creative film was founded in 1999 by Helge Balzer, Fabian Fulda, Florian Metzner and Dennis Rettkowski. Since 2012, the company has been run by the founding members Helge Balzer and Florian Metzner.
