The SHANTIPHANT project started out as a pilot project where many of my creative friends would chime in and contribute with whatever they could. The 2nd and even 3rd PHANT(FILM)WEEKS could only happen because they believed in me and encouraged me to work on the project independently from this time on. I believe that working in a collective where love and respect is generated, the outcome will be magical. Thus I want to express my gratitude for my following heroes!
After all, I would love to send out some special thanks to my P H A N T S :
Sina, Frauke, Laura, Carina, Karo, Brigitte, Sarasvati, Corinna, Cristina, Bettina, Sangita, Samantha, Merle and Samira for offering us deep insights in your soul and life.
