Gerhard Maier
Serien Camp , Germany

After working with the film and TV industry for over a decade where he escorted movies and series through their life-cycles by scouting markets, consulting marketing campaigns, conceiving websites, writing press books and reviews as well as editing two of Germany’s biggest point-of-sale entertainment publications, Gerhard Maier put his life-long obsession with TV series to use by founding Seriencamp. It is Germany’s first festival dedicated exclusively to serial storytelling, which is having its sixth edition in 2020. In 2017, Gerhard also founded an interdisciplinary storytelling conference PLOT that brings together experts from film, marketing, art, technology, and journalism to exchange perspectives, inspire, be inspired and network. As an expert in all things “series“ he is giving lectures and talks at film schools, training programs and conferences.
