We, Michael and Elias are best friends and we share our passion for film making. Our first feature documentary ZONGO is ready. Vamos!
Michael and Elias are born and raised in Bavaria, Germany. With a life long friendship and their passion for all kinds of media work they decided in 2017, to put their student money together, buying a GoPro camera, a drone and a one way ticket to Spain. “One way ticket and two cameras” was born.
Few years down the line and several video productions later, they found themselves shooting a full feature documentary in Ghana, West Africa. Without much experience in filming on a cinematic level nor travelling West Africa - in retrospect, the journey of the movie was exceptional but the concept remained the same: a “One way ticket and two cameras”, 6 weeks time and everything DIY; the editing, scoring, coloring and pictures. Achieving authenticity was the main objective.
Today the production company Mierbeth-Herzog is an independent media house with a variety of projects in arts and business.
