04.01.2018 - Outlook for 2018

In addition to Berlin we want to set up a second location in France this year, in 2018, and thereby reflect two aspects: the deep connection to the country and the fact that we (want to) work with international networks and are therefore less place-bound than before. France will be a “physical” place. Over the years, we have established networks in Tokyo, Shanghai and Los Angeles.

We will also be founding fuge.com as a standalone web content agency. Fuge stands for short stories in series formats; what connects them and makes them into a whole is the “Fuge” or “joint” between them, like the grouting between the tiles of an Arabian bathhouse, yielding a pattern and an overall image. And it is also the word for the rhythmic counterpoint (Bach), in which every sound (each story) connects to the one that precedes and supersedes it.
Under this name we will develop and market a web series that will deal in close-up with global culture. “ARCHlab100”, a series of 4-minute clips that each introduce an architect and a single project, is already online. Currently in development are the series “Chefs de Cuisine” and “Winemakers” and “World’s Best Design Bars”.

We founded prounenweb, the name under which we will be producing the web content series.

With these two “garage labs” (companies) we want to produce 40 more ARCHlab clips in 2018 and, in so doing, take a further step towards making ARCHlab the best-known web series platform for contemporary architecture worldwide.
We will make around 30 clips for the “World’s Best Design Bars”. And at least 10 clips each on “Vignerons” and “Chefs de Cuisine”.
Initially in English, German and French, a Japanese and Chinese version will follow.
PROUNEN FILM is currently working on the development and pre-production of the following projects, of which the majority is to be completed in 2018:

- A documentary with and about Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) in various formats (30 min, 52 min, 90 min, 10 x 3 min). Filmed all over the world as an international coproduction.
- A documentary about AI = artificial intelligence (52 min)
- A documentary about synthetic biology (52 min.)
- A documentary entitled “The Asian Century” (2 x 52 min)
- A documentary about the transformation of New York to the city of the 21st century, viewed from the “periphery”. “From Ruins to Jewels” (52 min)
- “The City of the Future”, 4 x 26 min with Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul and Bangkok as examples.
- “The Divine in Art” (2 x 52 min)
- A series called “Discoveries” filmed in India.

Happy New Year!

29.08.2017 - web - encyclopedia ARCHlab100

ARCHlab: This series is the beginning of an ENCYCLOPAEDIA ON CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE. It is modern, compact, attractive and at the same time background information; the user learns something. The more extensive the series the higher the value of the encyclopaedia. Planned to encompass 50 architects. Then 100. For licensing or as a series. For a “club” of renowned cultural institutions in regard of urban culture. This “club” will host and support this “project” of a growing encyclopaedia. And will be free in linking “friends” with the online series, on their website, on Youtube…
This is meant to become a web – platform in the form of an encyclopaedia which starts as a very simple and pure serial. Because any of these clips has the same opening, same setting, same number of questions. The series = encyclopaedia is meant to be a starting point, a beginning. The questions are always following the same central thread: 1 architect is answering and describing these questions about his/her project: what was the challenge, the context, the first idea…

Although he has travelled the world and lived in New York, Tokyo and London, he has never lived in Italy. On this journey, he sees the land of his forefathers with the eyes of a foreigner, while undertaking a very personal journey through the landscape that is inextricably bound to his family name.
