We worked with Molly Aida Film and Fabian Diering april 2011 for the shooting of the new movie by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire “Punk“. We shot a few days in Berlin and Fabian organized everything for us there in a short period of time! He adapted himself very quick to the project and its difficulties and was very professional from the beginning to the end: he knew the city very well, managed to understand the atmosphere the director had in mind for the locations we were looking for and made some very nice proposals that we actually followed.
Thanks Fabian!

Fabian Diering of Molly Aida Film was our Contact on ‘Globe Trekker: Germany 2’ and ‘Globe Trekker: World War II in Europe’. I would highly recommend him and would be delighted to work with him again in the future. He was very hard working and thorough; he came up with creative ideas and solutions and had excellent organisational skills. He worked tenaciously and with good humour on a tough shoot with long hours and numerous locations.

Dear Fabian!

We have now returned to London from our very successful trip to Berlin and I’m writing to thank you for your invaluable help on our shoot. As you know, we worked at a very furious pace in order to cover the ground needed for a 60min cultural documentary and that pace would not have been possible without your expert help. You offered us much more then we ever envisaged.

– A location manager who could find and get us access to those hidden gems like the Panorama rooftop, which we would otherwise never have found.
– A first assistant director with a keen eye for time, weather changes! and movement orders
– A researcher with the ability to find and offer us interesting subjects at the … Read More »

Contact: Sarah Reddin, Producer /

I work as a producer for an independent television production company who make a travel series called ‘Getaways’ which is transmitted on local television in Northern Ireland. We recently filmed a programme in Berlin and engaged the services of Fabian Diering as a location fixer for one week. During that period we required assistance with location permits and access into a range of museums, commercial buildings, restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs. We also needed advice on vantage points, which would best illustrate these locations.

Fabian Diering provided excellent assistance with all our queries and helped overcome the language barrier as none of the crew spoke German. He also provided us with a wealth of helpful suggestions and advice. … Read More »

Fabian of Molly Aida Film acted as Supervising Producer on a 90 minute program about Berlin which I directed for Canal Plus in France. This was no simple production: it involved tanks, explosives, actors, extras, numerous props and costumes and an extremely hectic shooting schedule. He handled it all with the highest degree of professionalism, not to mention a calm and good-natured attitude. He also surrounded me by a devoted and top-class production team. I would highly recommend Molly Aida Film for any production work in Germany.

In January 2013 I shot an image/corporate film for a new client in Berlin with Producer Fabian Diering and Molly Aida Film. I have had the pleasure to experience Fabian’s efficiency before, but this time we were operating under the very tight budget confines of a fledgling company that had no money to burn. I was, to state it mildly, astounded at Fabian’s ability to secure a first-class location for us, drum up a crew of young top professionals eager to prove their mettle, and the fact that shooting and post production was a flawlessly orchestrated process where every detail was just right.

Fabian’s little black book obviously goes a long way in Berlin, and when it comes to organising a shoot or an entire production he is … Read More »

Producer Fabian Martin Diering has worked in communications long before he entered the film world. He was the managing director and owner of an advertising agency and of a systems developer for web solutions. Working at the interface between project management and creative solutions has thus become second nature to him.

After more than a decade in the film industry, he has extensive experience as a service producer and line producer for adverts, music videos, image films and feature-length movies. Fabian Martin Diering is also well-versed in the many-faceted world of private and public grants, funding and sponsoring. As a producer for Molly Aida Film he brought four short films to the screen, two of which funded by the Medienboard Berlin and one of which went on to the short list of the Berlinale Today Award in 2010. He also … Read More »
