LIVE TV PRODUKTION
UEFA Group Stage Draw
Every year, a live draw is held to decide which international football teams from the different UEFA Leagues will compete against each other in the coming season. At the Champions League everyone who is anyone in the world of football meets to experience this exciting event and to witness live which teams will be paired against each other in the coming season. This is also the setting for the awards presentation for the Women and Men Player of the Year. From 2015 - 2020 the Draw took place at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Howland Directors: Director and Stage Management.
LIVE TV DIRECTOR
ARD + ZDF MEDIA ACADEMY
And then I went back to school again in 2013 to extend my portfolio with one more skill: TV direction. We produced daily TV shows in the Norddeutscher Rundfunk broadcasting company’s studios. I found the training definitely worth it. UEFA adopted a new image in 2015 and commissioned us with the production direction and stage management for the live TV productions of the draws for the Champions and Europa League. And for the Draw of the Nations League 2019 in Lausanne und the UEFA Euro2020 Final Draw, ROMEXPO Bucharest.
Even in the digital world, my clients trust my skill to create the right composition as well as perfect timing. In collaboration with Bitaffair, Jeroen Brüggemann and the CoPiDUS agency, we have developed a digital platform that allows the flow of virtual formats to be varied like a live TV Show and interactive with the viewers. Make your audience veel.it.

Kaldewei engaged the CoPiDUS agency for the virtual première of SUPERPLAN ZERO. And Max Jabs and myself formed the direction team for the reveal of the new shower surface.

On 28 May 2020, more than 650 participants from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Russia followed 90 online minutes of discussions and input from nine speakers on diversity, equality and inclusion issues. Feedback buttons and short surveys let them get involved, and comments and questions could also be raised via chat. The event was held in German, English and German Sign Language. Agency: CoPiDUS.
DB GROUP MEETING
The Group Meeting is the Deutsche Bahn Group’s annual management event. I have been the director for the Global Meeting since 2016. Every year, around 3,000 top national and international executives are invited to Berlin for this two-day event. In 2020 and 2021, the group meeting was implemented virtually. Conceptual advice, set and camera planning, production direction and recording management for the digital corporate meeting: Howland Directors.
LIVE AND DIGITAL
In 2021, Deutsche Bahn was also faced with the challenge of holding their HR department’s team day digitally and engaged me for the staging. I supported the DB team from the conceptual planning for the process and the set, creation of content, to the virtual implementation. In 2022, the #HTeamday was once again able to take place live for 400 participants, but was also broadcast in parallel as a live stream.
INTERNATIONAL DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL FAIR
Messe Berlin has engaged us for the annual opening ceremony of the International Tourism Exchange ever since 2016. In 2021 and 2022, ITB was organised solely online and exclusively for trade visitors. Howland Directors supported Messe in its digital implementation of the trade fair and press conference. Our tasks: advice on set and camera planning, content creation, production management and directing of two parallel livestreams, which were broadcast from two own studios on the Berlin exhibition grounds.
