Shotz is one of Germany’s leading production service companies that understands how to transform the country into a filmmaker’s playground.
A giant in his field, owner Tom Ehrhardt has spent over 25 years learning the ins and outs of the industry, line producing over 400 commercials, feature films, and music videos for the German market and beyond. He’s fortified on-the-ground local knowledge with an international network of contacts – and we want you to benefit from those relationships too.
The story of Shotz actually starts with a phone call from Milan, with Tom asked to lend his services on a nine-day shoot for a car commercial in Berlin. This project led Shotz to quickly accrue an enthusiastic Italian fanbase. Clients from several European countries were added along the way, and now, more than two decades later, our reach has expanded to become truly intercontinental. From Toronto to Tokyo, producers and creatives across the globe keep coming back to make the most of the Shotz service.
We bring slick logistics and Hollywood-quality production experience to all our projects. During the past two decades, our network of highly skilled crew has collaborated with German and worldwide partners covering the whole spectrum of services, from equipment rental and construction companies to casting directors and Academy award-winning special effects studios.
Supported by our partners, you’ll always have the right people on hand to fulfill your creative vision. And for those coming from overseas, we understand your language and creative needs. Our local crews work in English with excellent communication skills to ensure your project runs as smoothly as possible.
Our first-class service is matched only by our first-class credentials. As the German partner for the Global Production Network and a member of the Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP), Shotz enjoys pride in the top echelon of production service companies worldwide. And our clients can attest to it – we’ve delivered impeccable service to production companies such as Caviar, RSA, and Warner Bros, from brands such as Apple, Gucci, and Mercedes-Benz.
At Shotz, our aim will always be to guarantee superior quality production service. That’s why we’re the provider of choice for creative talent, producers, directors, cast, and crew alike. Offering a slick, stress-free experience both on and off-set, there’s a reason clients return to us again and again.
