After finishing his degree in Economics and Management Science, Tobias Bauckhage worked for three years as a strategy consultant for the Boston Consulting Group. He specialised in projects in the media and telecommunication sector. In 2004, he quit his job and founded the independent film production and distribution company jetfilm together with his best friend Jon Handschin. Since then they have successfully produced and/or distributed six feature films in Germany (including Bye Bye Berlusconi!).  In 2007, the two friends started moviepilot, a community-driven online entertainment guide and recommendation engine (some have called it “the for movies”), which is now is by far the largest community on film in Germany. International versions of moviepilot are in beta right now.

Tobias’ all-time favourite movie is Rushmore by Wes Anderson.
