v JP Vision


Since 1992 Jan Peter, acting both as author and director, has realized hundreds of minutes of film for television and cinema as well as documentaries. For twenty years he has been cooperating with Dresden writer and author Yury Winterberg and together they have successfully completed numerous film projects.

Jan Peter’s works are particularly rooted in the field of historical documentaries and fictionalizations. For ZDF/ARD and various international partners he filmed more than ten large documentary dramas in the environment of the Vatican, having exclusive access to contemporary witnesses and archives. He filmed documentaries in over sixty countries, ranging from a night time shoot at the Mayan pyramids in Cancun to film scenes in the Renaissance palace of Caprarola, near Rome, to a documentary in the Chinese countryside.

In addition to his expertise in history, Jan Peter is also in demand to inspire and develop new ideas, amongst others for the ZDF series "Soko Leipzig" and "Macht der Wunder".

Jan Peter is working for the first time on a large scale as series developer and author, on the eight-part documentary feature-flm-length series „14-Diaries of the Great War“. This international co-production - which has a budget of 8.2 million euros - was designed by him, and he collaborated as screenwriter on all episodes.
