For us, Montavia means being on the road – breaking new ground, always having creative ideas and staying innovative and contemporary.
Life is a journey, not a destination – and our inspiration for stories.

Our focus is on careful story development above all. In doing so, we emphasise the right balance between thematic depth and entertainment.

Steffen Freckmann

Executive Producer

Steffen was born in Stuttgart in 1987. In his childhood, the primetime choice was "Medicopter 117", "Edel & Stark" or "Balko". As a child of Generation Y, he was faced with an even more difficult choice and a labyrinth of career options after school.
After an apprenticeship as an industrial clerk, civilian service and training as a paramedic, he caught up on his Abitur and studied "Audiovisual Media" at the Stuttgart Media University, graduating with a Bachelor's degree. During this time he wrote and realised his first short films and in parallel gained experience at various German film production companies, including Rat Pack Filmproduktion in Munich in 2013.
From 2015 to 2021 he studied at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and now works for Montavia as a producer and screenwriter.
In his free time, Steffen likes to go for walks in the forest or acquire nerdy knowledge about astrophysics.

Paul Prenissl

Executive Producer

Paul was born in Starnberg in 1993. When he wasn't out in nature as a boy scout in his childhood, he used his limited "flicker time" to watch action films of the 00s like "Die Hard" or "Fast and Furious".
After graduating from high school, Paul began working on various film sets for TV and cinema productions in 2011. In 2013, he completed an internship at NEUESUPER GmbH in Munich and subsequently worked for them as a production manager for the first season of the ZDFneo sitcom "Blockbustaz", among others.
From 2015 to 2021 he studied production at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. In autumn 2020, Paul completed a further IHK training course to become a GmbH managing director.
In his free time, he is drawn up into the mountains or down into his workshop to carpenter furniture.
