At the age of 11, Roman spent five days filming alongside Matthias Schweighöfer and Caroline Herfurth in the TV comedy "Kiss Me Frog" by Dagmar Hirtz. When this experience was over, Roman cried a lot. But his passion for film and television was awakened from then on.
Matthias gets his own camera at the same time to film himself and his parents on vacation. But he much preferred shooting short action clips with explosions and lightsabers.
Matthias and Roman found the company "Picmention", driven by their common passion to produce films. Matthias is also training to become an IT specialist in Dresden. Roman studies law in Leipzig.
