Jazzanova - like a band: a documentary film that tracks the Berlin-based, world-reknowned musical collective Jazzanova.

For 15 years, Jazzanova has been producing music of the highest quality. They're living proof that we achieve more when we band together.

Their motto: as long as you do what you believe in, you win.

That faith is palpable in their music, but it hasn't come without a price, as the film will reveal. The film takes stock of a generation of people who want to live out their dreams. Jazzanova is symbolic of this generation.

Filmmakers freier.eckert pose the questions:

How do we manifest our dreams?

How do we survive?


After three years of shooting, it's time to finish the film and the soundtrack. That's going to cost € 70,000.

Help us write this piece of musical history and become part of this production. Tell your friends.

A film in Dolby SRD, 90 min. Locations include Berlin, London, Rotterdam, Rio de Janeiro.

Project Creator

Regisseur & Produzenten von
Jazzanova like a band:

freier.eckert. Das ist der kurze und unkomplizierte Name für das Regie-/Produktions-Duo, das sich aus dem Regisseur Matthias Freier und dem Co-Produzenten an diesem Projekt Alexander Eckert zusammensetzt. Beide sind Autodidakten und haben ihre ersten Schritte mit Kurzfilmen getan.

Gemeinsam drehten sie unter anderem für Künstler wie Udo Lindenberg, Nena und die Fantastischen Vier, sowie im Bereich Werbung und Imagefilm für Opel, Baden Württemberg, ARD, Mc Donald’s, ZDF, DSM und Vodafone.

freier.eckert glaubt an die Kraft des Zusammentuns und lebt den kollektiven Gedanken.

Executive Producer ist die Dreamwalker GmbH mit deren Geschäftsführer Mark Dare Schmiedel. Neben Audio/Video-Auftragsarbeiten ist dessen Hauptinteresse, den Künstler in den Mittelpunkt der Aufmerksamkeit zu rücken, in der Vergangenheit über Internetportale und Einzelproduktionen und jetzt das erste Mal über einen Dokumentarfilm.

The director/producers of
Jazzanova like a band:

freier.eckert: that's the short and sweet name for this team of two, the self-taught director Matthias Freier und co-producer on this project, Alexander Eckert.

As a team, they have worked with artists like Udo Lindenberg, Nena and die Fantastischen Vier. They have produced corporate media and commericals for Opel, Baden Württemberg, ARD, McDonald’s, ZDF, DSM and Vodafone.

freier.eckert believes in the power of collaboration and collective thought.

Executive Producer is Dreamwalker. Its Managing Director Mark Dare Schmiedel’s goal is to focus attention on the artist via internet platforms and, more recently, documentary film.
