Frankfurter Kreuz", is a 60 minutes story made for the TV station
Arte and has a number of particular aspectswhich deserve a mention.
The story is set in a "watering hole", a pub, in Frankfurt.
After some research the production designers drew up their illustrations.
All the possibilities were weighed up: first of all "realism"
- everything filmed on location; the second possibility "naturalism"
- everything built specially; and the third alternative - a "cinemagic"
combination of typical set construction combining the studio set and
filming exteriors on location. The possibility of using electronic
compositions and green screens was also looked into.
