About Me

Thomas Steiger (c) Sabine Felber 2008

Text and content. Understand and be understood. These are the requirements for each piece of information and those who process it. In particular, information on social media. Additionally to quick entertainment, people are looking for concise information with value of benefit. Information, that professionally prepared, profoundly shapes a company’s reputation and brings new customers.

For over twenty years, I write texts with a variety of requirements for various target groups in German and English. This not only includes simple newspaper articles and film reviews, but also specific technical articles about film and cinema technology, short texts on medical topics, succinct PR articles and even screenplays.

The focus of my work in the past few years has been on reporting on the Film & TV industry for magazines such as the weekly trade paper Blickpunkt:Film, the monthly trade paper Medien Bulletin or the monthly Film & TV Kameramann. During that time, I have learned continuously about the continuously arising new topics and trends and made contacts that allow me a deep insight into the functioning of an exciting part of the cultural and creative industries.

At the same time, I have processed these issues for an audience outside the industry in generally comprehensible terms, e.g. for readers of the Berlin daily newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, the Berlin city magazine zitty or the specialist magazine for foreign trade China Contact.

I also have extensive experience in the area of writing for the screen spanning from the stage of ideas, character development, exposé and treatment up to the finished screenplay.

At the Digital Film Camp 2012, I gave a lecture in English on crowdfunding, which you can see here.

From 2013 to 2015, I accompanied the publication of TAKE, the annual brochure of the Film Fund of South Tyrol, as editor in chief.

In addition, I create press kits for film and television productions – such as for public broadcaster NDR, Sony Pictures Releasing, StudioCanal, Wild Bunch or Tobis and press and PR materials e.g. for the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the Topswing Golf School (for which I have also built the website), and for the talent and PR agency Barbarella Entertainment. From 2008 to 2013 I worked as program respectively conference editor for the international media congress medienwoche@IFA.

For some time now, I have extended my activities to the editorial maintenance of websites and social media presences. For the Lung Clinic in Berlin-Buch and the Hubertus Hospital Berlin I am responsible for the respective newsletters and for the Berlin medical tourism service PGD International I wrote all editorial content of the website and all social media channels in English and still take care of the news-page.

It would be happy to assist you in your PR, editorial, social media and online activities and be able to take up new issues and challenges at the same time.
