WHO WE ARE
Al Dente Entertainment GmbH is a film production company for brands and companies, founded in Munich in 2004. As the two-time winner of the German Business Film Award (2013, 2015), the company has had a significant impact on the world of corporate videos. In addition to numerous other award-winning films, the most successful corporate film of all time in German-speaking Europe was made by the Munich filmmakers: “S’Lebn is a Freid! – The mother of all image films”. This satire about the image film genre in general, which made a small Munich fruit stand known throughout Germany, has been seen by more than a million people.
Since 2017, al Dente Entertainment has been the exclusive film partner of the F.A.Z. Institute and partner of the platform “Students in the Labour Market” operated by the LMU University of Munich.
WE PRODUCE GLOBALLY
Productions in more than 26 countries, on 5 continents and in more than 13 languages. Many of our customers are true global players and thus have special marketing needs.

Now the Managing Director, Peter had been previously working in the media industry for over twenty-five years, including as a film and series curator for RTL and as a producer and director of various award-winning TV formats and shows before he founded al Dente Entertainment in 2004. Schels is a lecturer for corporate film at the Bavarian Television Academy, the LMU Munich and the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. Peter collects festival prizes for al Dente as a director and author. He is a member of the Grand Jury at the New York Festival and the Cannes Corporate Awards. Due to his very direct communication philosophy he may be not the best choice for the diplomatic service, but very much so if clear communication is something you desire.
Responsible for digitalisation, technology and production. David Meadows-Hertig seeks to constantly expand al Dente’s freelancer network and is always on the lookout for new system improvements (especially regarding his personal sweetheart, the al Dente editing server). He is a juror for the “Deutsche Webvideopreis” (German Web Video Prize) and has let the company drones rise on four continents to date. Considered a very charming late night worker.
Co-founder of al Dente Entertainment. Oliver Berger has a stake in a number of other corporate endeavours through his company Berger Venture. As a communications expert (master of all important dialects, even Schwyzerdütsch!) with a unique quick-wittedness, he is a specialist for “ice breaking”. Doesn’t take himself too seriously, like everyone else at al Dente.
