wtf is btf?

We create content. From the idea to the finished product. All-in since 2012.

Our first big project was a talk show, where people were allowed to smoke and drink. Those were different times. Since then, we've made many more shows. Our portfolio includes old favorites such as "Neo Magazin (Royale)" and "Lass dich überwachen!" (ZDFneo/ZDF) as well as current shows such as “The Carolin Kebekus Show” (ARD) with - SURPRISE - Carolin Kebekus and “MAITHINK X - The Show” (ZDFneo), with Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim.

In the realm of fiction we produce a number of series and films. "How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)," is still known as one of the most streamed Netflix series from Germany. There’s also a prequel film, "Buba," starring the magnificent Bjarne Mädel. During Corona we started our first home office project: “Drinnen - Im Internet sind alle gleich,” that was produced entirely from our own homes. Then there’s the wonderful comedy series from the wonderful Maren “Kroymann,” as well a series of stand-up comedy specials with Hazel Brugger among others. More new series for Netflix came next, including “King of Stonks,” inspired by the biggest financial scandal in recent German history.

But we don’t just do fiction and shows, we also do hard-hitting reality, especially in our documentaries. We produced three documentaries for WDR under the title “Docupy”. “Heimatland'' looked at Germany. “Ungleichland'' also looked at Germany, but from the perspective of social inequality and “Neuland” was about the Internet. There is a true story behind "How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)" and we also did a lot of research on it: "Shiny Flakes - The Teenage Drug Lord" was the result. Even more exciting documentaries and features are in the pipeline, but are still top secret. Sorry, we don't make the rules!

Last but definitely not least are the apps and games: Game Royale, parts 1, 2 and 3, were our first steps. Then came “Trüberbrook”, the somewhat different point & click adventure in specially created stop-motion scenery. Up next was the “DINO DINO” app (not just) for our younger fans, as well as “The Apartment” on behalf of the Bundesverfassungsschutz (The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution). The next levels are about to be unlocked.

Everything we do, we do with great passion. That’s why we've also won prizes. On our journey we’ve won the Grimme Award, the German Television Award, the Romy Award and the German Comedy Award. Then there was the German Computer Game Award for the best German computer game and for the best production, the ADC awards, the Golden Rose of Montreux and a few more fine things. But let's not talk too much about awards. We’re too modest for that.

btf is all this and more, and we still haven’t explored or attempted everything on our creative agenda. We'll keep at it!
