"More time for production instead of planning"

Leonardo Re has always had a passion for film and television. During his studies, he worked as an assistant director on several film sets, gaining an insight into the complex world of media production. After graduating, he began his career in the media industry and quickly rose to the position of production manager for documentary series.

In his role as production manager, he was responsible for company-wide project management, staff scheduling and contract negotiations. But one of the biggest challenges he faced was controlling and optimising post-production. Good post-production planning was important on many levels, as late deliveries could lead to contractual penalties and vacancies were prohibitively expensive.

While working in the media industry, Leonardo noticed that many companies struggled to plan and organise their post-production processes efficiently. Many relied on shared calendars or large Excel spreadsheets to organise their processes. This reliance on individual people led to massive wastage of time due to redundant communication and confusion.

Leonardo realised that there had to be a way to streamline these processes and help media companies spend more time on production. With this in mind, he and co-founder Alexander Hirschfeld set up freispace GmbH in June 2022.

Alexander, who is responsible for the technical side of the company, and Leonardo have worked hard to develop a software solution that meets the needs of the media industry. Together with their team in Berlin and Potsdam, they worked to create a solution that would revolutionise post-production processes in the industry. The hard work and dedication of the team has paid off, and at the beginning of July the company was able to celebrate with a festive launch party at their office in Berlin-Gesundbrunnen. The party was a great success and gave the team confirmation that they were on the right track.

The support of the MediaTech Hub Accelerator Babelsberg and acceptance into the Media Fellowship Programme of the Media Lab Bayern helped the company to develop close to the industry and to be in close exchange with the film and media industry. With each passing day, the company grew and gained importance in the industry.

In December 2022, the company was finally able to open an office in Potsdam in order to consolidate and further expand its regional contacts. The opening of the new office was an important milestone for the company, which was now able to develop and improve its software solution in close cooperation with the film and media industry. Today, freispace is the most advanced and intuitive software solution for your PostPro!
