The Berlin based film production company JUMPSEAT focuses on the development, production and co-production of German and international feature films, series, high concept corporate productions and events. The company was founded in 2013 by Niels Laupert and Benjamin Grosch . It is an unusual team: Niels has studied Directing and Producing, Benjamin studied Organic Chemistry and works as strategic consultant – and both love story telling. “ We are fascinated by stories about what makes us human, about how we form relationships, and what shapes and disrupts societies. And one day we thought: Let’s just do it – let’s tell the stories that move us.We called the company „JUMPSEAT“, since without catching the last plane on a jumpseat, Niels would not have been able to enroll to film school – and the company wouldn’t exist.
