Ellen Hoch-Kramer

Managing Director / Producer at Caribbean Production Company
St. James, Barbados

About me

I am born and raised in Germany, studied ‘Commercial Art’ in New Haven, CT/USA and worked in Paris/France.
I hold a Masters Degree in ‘Visual Communication’ from Berlin University of Arts/Germany.
In Berlin I was developing and publishing international lifestyle magazines and was owner and manager of full service advertising agencies, as well as music and video production companies.
Before selling my Berlin company in order to combine a new business idea with the desire for sun and sea, I had carefully planned my move to the Caribbean and I had finally decided on the Caribbean Island of Barbados
I am the Manager and Producer at "Caribbean Production Company", which is a high quality Full Service Production and Location Scouting Company supporting international production companies, advertising agencies, media companies, television networks and photographers when shooting commercials, stills, videos, documentaries and movies in the Caribbean region.
