How it started
Prodigium founders Tobias Deml and Hiroki Kamada met as immigrant film students, and in 2011 they founded Prodigium with a dream of doing big things in Hollywood. It was around this time that Tobias had a near-death experience, which changed his perspective on filmmaking and made him question what kind of legacy he wanted to leave behind. This is how the idea of a Social Impact Entertainment company was born.

Our ultimate goal is to transform the entertainment industry into a force for positive change not just through our work  but also through leading by example with our own high standards of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). As our company continues to grow and we take on ever-larger projects, we are dedicated to using our success to create an even larger positive impact on the world.
