Moving Films was established in the wake of the production of the film Beauty and the Bike in 2009. The company, based in Bremen Germany, is a partnership between Richard Grassick and Beatrix Wupperman. Richard spent over 20 years at Newcastle-based Amber Films, and met Beatrix, an economist with a long-standing interest in film and photography, by chance whilst teaching film production at a VideoWoche event in Bremerhaven in 1996. They have been together ever since.
Our passion is sustainable transport, and everyday cycling in particular. But we established Moving Films as a vehicle (no pun intended) for making films about wider themes about the human condition in the 21st century. As we enter into the late afternoon of our lives, the word “retire” just doesn’t figure. Instead, we want to continue to make our small contribution to the changes that will be needed for a just and sustainable future.
