About us

Two heads – hundreds of ideas

What at first seemed to be a funny idea that came up over an after-work beer finally became reality. We can’t present a glorious story about the origin of our enterprise with the first notes on a beer mat in the funny pub next door – nevertheless the idea of our own creative media production firm never lost its hold on us. When in the middle of 2015 we had set up our first business plan, it became clear that we had chosen the right way. Since then we have been working together as a creative team doing wonderful projects and are already planning the next one at this moment.

About us - Timo Semmler



Timo Semmler

video production

Since his first encounter with a reflex camera Timo has always been searching for the next object that can be highlighted. From analogous and digital photography he finally moved on to moving pictures, but in between he started and finished successfully his studies in audio engineering.
For it is self-evident that a film does not only have to appeal with its visual, but also with its acoustic stimuli. With his broad arrangement of capacities and being responsible for the video productions done by Refining Arts, Timo can act out his complete sense of creativity.
