Berlin based production company, REKORDER, joins ENID London for commercial representation. Founded in 2001 by director Werner Klemm, REKORDER currently spans four offices, including post production facilities, as well as an art gallery in the heart of Berlin, offering the entire production process, with editing suites and grading in-house. Rekorder recently forged a relationship with CANADA, representing their directors for the German market.
One of REKORDER‘s top directors – Cannes Lion winner, Rodrigo Saavedra – came from an advertising background, crossing over to directing in 2013. His award-winning commercial film for Scrabble was called “The perfect love story for word nerds” by Time Magazine, and his short film ‘The Red Stain’, for the Francis Coppola Winery, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, leading to Saavedra’s subsequent admission into the Directors Guild of America. Saavedra’s quirky visual sense, detail, and intricate transitions attracted clients such as Coca-Cola, Jeep, Cadillac, Dropbox, and Nissan, to name a few.
REKORDER’s commitment to art extends beyond the world of filmmaking, with an art gallery – REKORDER Galerie – representing and supporting the work of international, contemporary artists.
“It’s a fantastic space for us to have”, says Werner Klemm, “given that we can use it to hold events which bring the creative community together, as well showcase brilliant art. For example we recently held an event called ‘ERROR’, in which we invited some guests to talk about their experiences of failure. So we had people from agencies, but also artists and engineers come to talk about their experiences and what they learned. So it’s great for us to listen and learn, and also great for the community, I hope, to take from it as well”.
