Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2016

CAPT’N SHARKY, Germany's most successful kids' literary pirate, finally gets his own film (release planned for the end of 2017)! The pint-sized swashbuckler who can overcome anything sets sail with Mikey, a normal young boy whose life Sharky has turned upside down, and Bonnie, a trouble-shooting girl who tends to assume command in every situation. Together, this motley crew sails for adventures of plunder, pillage and piracy as they thwart the plans of The Admiral and Old Bill the Pirate. It starts as a pure alliance of convenience, but along the way they explore themes of friendship, fairness, loyalty, tolerance and what it means to be a hero.
