Philipp Weinges

In the late 80s Philipp Weinges started writing German-dubbed versions of American sitcoms. After attending Robert McKee’s seminar ‘Story structure’ he sold his first script Alone among women (1991), which became a major German box office hit.

In the 90s, together with Günter Knarr, he created scripts for film and television. In 2000 they decided to produce their scripts by themselves and founded ‘rome-film’. The company produced four television movies (including Crazy Race and Crazy Race 2) and one sitcom pilot.

In 2004 Weinges and Knarr left rome and, together with Andreas Richter, they founded a new company called ‘Crazy Film’. They have now produced five television films, and are in production for their first movie for the big screen.
