We develop and produce movies for the big screen as well as TV series for people between 18 and 45 years. Our aim is to reach large audiences. As recent arrivals to the market, we are currently in the development of projects in cooperation with several scriptwriters and directors. In the course of this we develop for ourselves as well as for other production companies. We are especially looking to team up in the financing and production of larger TV Series and TV-Movies. The main office of NY Monkey is in Hamburg with a second office in Berlin. We do not have an office in New York yet…



Jens-Florian Groß and Veronica Priefer met as students during the M.A. program at Hamburg Media School (HMS). Although both of them had already pursued careers in the gaming, and advertising industry, they desired to make a career change into film producing. At the HMS they produced a total of six short films, which were shown at more than 150 festivals nationally and internationally and received multiple awards. After their graduation in May 2015 they founded the production company NY Monkey.



NY Monkey currently develops several movies and TV series.
Here is a selection of projects we are working on:
