It’s a drop that makes an ocean. Just like a small idea that makes a great story. Emerged in 2010, with nothing but a camera, we dared the dive into the deep. Today, we are a fully integrated production house creating films that hook, challenge, and captivate all senses across the ponds. Made of pioneering minds and partners, we bring to the surface what inspires, pushes boundaries, or is yet to be told. We believe great ideas don’t belong in an aquarium. We believe they belong out in the open, for everyone to see.

Düsseldorf - Suite


Emerged in 2010, Dustin Schöne started as a freelance videographer with a vision of creating beautiful films. In 2013, Marie Niemann joined him opening up the first own office in Düsseldorf. In 2016 the company was renamed Saltwater Films GmbH & Co. KG and opened up a second office in Berlin. While our Berlin location has since become our main base, Düsseldorf remains as a production hub for projects across the NRW region.

We are a creative film production company based in Berlin and Düsseldorf. We offer a full range of concept development, film and photo production as well as post-production services across a variety of formats - commercials, music videos, photography, short films and documentaries. Our experienced team brings projects to life, transforming your vision into compelling audiovisual content. Our process begins with thorough concept development, working closely with clients to understand their ideas and transform them into powerful visual narratives.
