International production and distribution company Off the Fence (OTF) has announced it is opening a German office to be headed by Ralf Blasius. Off the Fence Deutschland will be based in Mainz, near Frankfurt and is opening in an attempt to strengthen OTF’s realtionship in the German market. This decision follows OTF’s commission from German broadcaster ZDF for the program Grenzgaenger which follows Andreas Kieling as he explores the wilderness that stretches the length of the former Iron Curtain. The German office joins OTF’s other offices in Amsterdam, Singapore, South Africa, Bristol and New York.
