Arte premieres a 90-minute feature film length version. In autumn and winter more versions to come, in 3 and 5 episodes on Arte and Terra X on ZDF.
Soul-Singer THEO recorded a new album in Los Angeles, with all new self-written songs, featuring a bunch of fantastic session musicians. The band members played in studios and on stage with the likes of James Brown or Aretha Franklin. We produced the videos of the album title-song Heart of Soul and also for Songs of Marvin Gaye. Plus the making-of from THEO’s recording sessions in L.A.
