Pantaflix, Schweighöfer seek living room shows

Matthias Schweighöfer stars in Amazon suspense series You Are Wanted

German VoD service Pantaflix and the director, producer and star of Amazon Prime’s You Are Wanted have started a campaign to get Germany’s creative community to produce content from their own homes.

Pantaflix and Matthias Schweighöfer are encouraging actors, directors, comedians, influencers, content creators and other celebrities to produce short videos, such as tutorials, short thrillers or living room concerts, that will be hosted on the streaming platform.

Viewers of the content will in return be encouraged to make donations to Die Arche, a German charity that raises money to fight child poverty.

Dubbed #WeActForGood, the initiative has already seen Kida Khodr Ramadan, Heiko and Roman Lochmann, Michael Nast and singer-songwriters Peachy and Nisse start their own short productions exclusively for the campaign.

“For me, it is important to give a good example and to gain something positive from the situation. Now we all have more time than usual. It goes without saying to activate friends and colleagues and say ‘Hey, let’s use this and do what we love: acting’,” said Schweighöfer.

Nicolas Paalzow, CEO of Pantaflix, added: “The coronavirus crisis cut us as producers to the quick, because at the moment we cannot do what we love most, namely telling stories and making movies. That’s why I couldn’t be more proud of Matthias and our whole team for coming up with the idea of #WeActForGood in this situation, to help those people who are hit most by this crisis.”
