We feel privileged to have been selected for this conference of leading international broadcast professionals, creators and experts. Director Daniel Moshel will personally attend the event together with commissioning editor Lucas Schmidt – in case you’re there this will be your chance to meet the makers in person. The conference will take place from May 7th to May 11th in Sydney.

LOGIN2LIFE is distributed by Autlook Filmsales

Thursday, February 16th, 2012 | Common, Development, Distribution | No Comments

After the festival premiere in Biarritz, France we are now very happy to announce that our film joined one of the best documentary film distributor known on the international market (Thank you Pavel so much:-)


So if you or your sister are interested in our film for any purpose (TV broadcast, educational, festival, internet …) The wonderful guys and gals from Autlook Filmsales deal with all your requests. Right now we’re producing a 56 Minute Version of L2L to please all the TV stations round the world who are more interested in short docs than in long ones. It’s interesting that the ratio is devided up like this: 70% buy 60 minutes docs and the rest spend the time to play the long format too. Amazing, isn’t it? We hope that the impact on our doc will spread our flick round the globe. We keep you posted here, when L2L pops up somewhere near next to you. Let’s celebrate…

A kind of ‘LOGIN2LIFE goes FIPA2012′ diary

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012 | Distribution, Finish, festival | No Comments


I arrived today afternoon in Biarritz. A decent wheather 13°C and a warm brise from the Atlantic ocean welcomed me here. It’s a pity that my producer colleagues from Eidolon Entertainment can’t join me here (thinking of you and sending you also some pics). For me it’s a strange feeling to return to Biarritz because the past three times when I was here the intention was surfing. Or better to say: Learning how to surf(Never managed to catch a damn wave in 7 weeks paddling .-)

So it is very odd to come here for presenting L2L. And it’s a great opportunity for us to start because I have to admit that the festival is bigger than I thought it is. They celebrate this year their 25th anniversary and you can see that they try to raise the flag high. Before I even managed to set a step on the ground in Biarritz I already met a filmaker from Israel (Naomi from Black Sheep) while waiting for the transfer flight in Paris who is also presenting a film here at the festival. After we were picked up gently at the Biarritz airport we directly received our ‘badge professionnel’ from wonderful organization team member Florence Girot in the picturesque festival headquarter at the Biarritz Casino (see pic in older post, wonderful view onto the beach, I can tell you). Then the eve came and I joined the opening ceremony in the Gare du Midi ( a cinema with more than 1500 seats). It was pretty stuffed with audience. They presented the key players of the festival and the jury of the competition program. I made a picture of the stage and of the face who is head of the ‘creative documentary’ competition section named Inês de Medeiros. So now I know where I have to send my prayers to.-) After this formal opening ceremony they really opened the festival with the interesting pilot (first episode of the suspenseful french series named ‘Homes de l’ombre’, content: after the assassination of the french president, the new elections are dependant on two rivals communication agents …)

After this full impact day I saved myself from extiction and I enjoyed a wonderful french dinner in the ‘Bar du Jardin’, which ended with my favourite dessert ‘creme brulle’ which is directly responseble for the fact that I’m sitting here after midnight and writing this nonesense. I hope I’ll be able to write more posts during my stay here. At least when we receive an award I’ll do this for sure:-)

The day after the L2L Premiere on ZDF

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011 | Distribution, Finish | 1 Comment


We got so much awesome feedback and we’d lke to thank our community so much. The film is discussed heavily in the online media right now. We got also got the feedback that the ZDF Servers are running hot in showing Login2Life. We don’t know exact streaming counts but we are in pole position concerning “most viewed”. I think this is a good sign. So if you want to watch the whole movie: Go here ZDF Mediathek. It is available for FREE till next Sunday 23rd Oct 2011. Further interesting links:

German radio station ON3 podcast featuring Bernhard Drax (music composer and machinimator of L2L) and Daniel.

Insightful interview about the film with director Daniel Moshel on betterverse.

German L2L review of the Stuttgarter Zeitung

ZDf Trailer (just for short time)

We just stumbled upon the fact that Das Kleine Fernsehspiel (ZDF the German broadcast Network) is promoting our film on their site. Usually they are not creating themselves trailers for the Films they are showing but in our case they made an exception because we didn’t have time yet to do so ourselves.-) Thx to Benjamin Gögge (who works for “Das kleine Fernsehspiel”)editing this nice insightful clip.  Check it out because they won’t promote it for a very long time.-)

Additionally today a German radio station interviewed our director Daniel Moshel about his characters  in L2L. If you want to listen to the Q&A conversation between Markus Köbnik and Daniel go here.

Reviews incoming

Like you hopefully know Login2Life will be screened the first time on Oct 17th Midnight CEST on the German ZDF channel. Beforehand we are glad to see that specialiced press is enjoying L2L. Here one excerpt from Rik Panganiban (betterverse.org):

…Most importantly, the director Daniel Moshel refrained from portraying his subjects as freaks or clowns for the audience to laugh at.  Instead, he unpacks their motivations and desires in a way that pulls you into their story.  Watching a disabled man fighting in World of Warcraft with just his mouth, you can’t help but be thrilled when he bests his opponent and then taunts the other player about how he was “pwned by a cripple.”  Clearly Moshel has an affection for his subjects that comes through as he lets them tell their stories. …

What follows is a review from Tobias Heidemann for the gaming related site giga.de:

… „LOGIN2LIFE“ verfolgt einen erfrischend unvoreingenommen Ansatz. Anders als vergleichbare Dokumentionen geht es Moshel nicht so sehr um die Konflikte, Widersprüche oder Grenzen zwischen Realität und virtueller Realität – „Login 2 Life“ stellt diese zwei Existenzen hingegen als eine einzige dar. Am Beispiel der portraitierten Menschen gelingt es Moshel die Mauer, die in manchen Köpfen noch immer existiert, einzureißen und das Leben in der digitalen Welt als ein sehr reales Geflecht aus Selbstverwirklichung, Phantasie und Wirtschaft darzustellen. …

Looking forward to post some more reviews here.-)

LOGIN2LIFE entering its Second Life Cycle!

Monday, August 29th, 2011 | Backstage, Common, Distribution, Finish | 3 Comments

Hey there everybody! As we’ve already announced in our last blogpost the film is finally finished. Phew and wow and yeah! Sooo much time but hey, we stuck to it and pulled it off…

And now, L2L is entering its next (second) cycle of life – distribution. Currently we’re heading for October 17th as a premiere date on ZDF, Second German Television, probably followed soon by ORF, the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation. Also, we submitted L2L to the Doc Leipzig and Sundance Filmfestivals and are tensly awaiting their decisions. Please keep all your real and virtual fingers crossed that we make it into the competition.

Furthermore, we’ve started our planning and schemeing about our possibilities of distributing the film to the rest of the world. Thoughts are flying around about whether we should go theatrical, television, online or direct to DVD marketing – or maybe all together???!!! From reading the comments we’re getting it seems you’re all eager to see the film. So any input you have on how YOU would like to get is appreciated by us. Go ahead and tell it straight to our virtual faces whether you’d prefer to go to a ‘cinema near you’ or rather be a couch potatoe and just watch it on your TV-sets or computer screens. We will try our best and utmost to deliver it any way you like it. In case you yourself have means of distribution, online or RL platforms to those means, or whatever else you believe could be helpful – just go right ahead and drop us a line…

Thanks for the support so far and keep coming back as we’ll keep you posted on the latest progress…

Best regards from all of the team! Stay tuned…
