Fabian Wolf, Autentic/Arte/ZDF/3Sat/NHK, LIFE FROM SPACE - EXOPLANETS
A revolution in space exploration is imminent: NASA firmly believes that a planet with oxygen in its atmosphere will soon be found. A direct indication of life.
Fabian Wolf: "First of all, I would like to say thank you for giving me the award and I would just like to emphasize that I am standing here as a representative of a large team, because as you have heard, this is a high-quality production and I am not doing this alone. There's a big team behind it and, last but not least, a very good production team that accompanied me today, which, for example, made sure that we could use these great animations that we didn't draw ourselves. They came from Japan as part of a cooperation with NHK, the public broadcaster in Japan. They make great animations and provided them for this production.”Click here
