- She believes she has tracked down a corruption scandal on Norderney and demands help from inspectors Thorsten Falke and Julia Grosz.
Who is the actress of the journalist Imke Leopold?
The character, whose passion borders on fanaticism, is played convincingly by Franziska Hartmann. Born in 1984 near Munich, she studied drama in Leipzig. In Hamburg, where she lives today, she was a permanent member of the Thalia
The ater ensemble for many years and continues to perform there. A psychologically intense role Franziska Hartmann also played in 2017 in the award-winning television film “Über Barbarossaplatz” as a therapy patient alongside Joachim Kròl and Bibiana Beglau.
In “Stars Above Us” she was seen as a single mother who, after giving up an apartment, begins to spend the night with her son in the forest. That was why there was the in 2020 German television award for best actress. When a crime story she had spoken received the German Audiobook Prize for the best children’s book in 2018, Franziska Hartmann gave the media site of the Catholic Borromeo Association an interview in which she gave the Likening her acting career to traveling: “It happens automatically, through the lyrics, the costumes and the mask. It’s even easier from piece to piece. Different ensembles, different stages – it’s like traveling to another place.”
Traveling alone, like music (she sings and plays the violin), is another passion of Franziska Hartmann: “I enjoy it, with a camera, diary and backpack to travel around the area and to be completely guided by impulses. “She has traveled a lot:” Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, India, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Georgia, Armenia, Cuba, Iran, Myanmar, Peru, Sri Lanka, Australia … “
The world has so much to offer and I want to see a lot more. “
What makes the music of this “crime scene” so special?
The 38-year-old was the guest conductor of the NDR Radiophilharmonie Christian Schumannwho also works as a film composer himself.

As a conductor, I also like to make suggestions to the composer. This time I could just turn around in the recording room and ask: Should we try it one way or another? Wouldn’t it be better if the sound quickly became quiet at this point instead of slowly flattening out? “
How is such a film score created?
Also Composer Stefan Will (“4 Blocks”) explains his work in the press booklet. It is particularly important to him when reading a script Outline ideas. And “as soon as the first editing sequences are available, I will make the music that is already intended for the rough cut approval. Otherwise, that happens when editing any music from Hollywood productions is placed under the scenes, which everyone finds great after watching them twenty times. And then I should write something similar. I’ve been trying to avoid that for years. That’s why I put them early Basic mood and some subjects fest.”
The re is three large atmospheric sequences in the film, at the beginning, in the middle and at the end, which really give space to the music. Otherwise our music will hold up inconspicuously in the background and don’t interfere when the commissioners speak. We didn’t set ‘Indiana Jones’ to music, but one north german ‘crime scene’who has a completely different attitude than an American fantasy saga. “
