MWE - making waves
While MirrorWater Entertainment (MWE) operates globally as a film development and production company it is based in the valley of the highest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitz Region. It maintains its representation in Los Angeles, California and Bethesda, Maryland. We specialize in feature films, TV shows, and documentaries for a variety of platforms.
We are a family-run business working in collaboration with handpicked producers that care about more than just the bottom line. By fostering growth and development, honesty, and fairness and by pushing each other to our creative limits, we believe in delivering content that is passionate, entertaining, educational, and real. By bringing together innovative voices and fresh talent to nurture the heart and soul of the story, we abide by the 3 E’s:
Entertainment, Education, & Enlightenment.
And by the way, we plan to be the first production company to make a film on Mars!
CHRISTINA ROSE – CEO/CO FOUNDER
Christina Rose is an American-German director, producer, and screenwriter and part of the new Hollyworld Movement – bringing entertainment to the global world. She has worked in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Together with her brother Michael, she co-founded MirrorWater Entertainment LLC (MWE). Prior to setting up a production company, Christina’s worked at such prestigious companies as Arad Productions, Exclusive Media, and in distribution at ZDF-Enterprises. Most recently, she was an executive at the European network Sky, acquiring new projects for development.
Since starting MWE, she produced documentaries, and TV shows for the international market. Christina is currently stepping into the world of feature films. The daughter of a US Army Officer, she learned that discipline, dedication, and honor are key traits in developing and producing noteworthy and meaningful content. While she has had her share of learning curves and living an adventurous roller coaster life, she seeks to produce content that entertains, educates, and engages audiences. She is a thinker and wants to push others to challenge underlying assumptions in all they do. It is what pushes and motivates Christina, especially during times of crisis. Just ask her, there have been a boatload of tough days and challenges she’s had to overcome.
Next to working in the entertainment industry, Christina is currently writing a book on leadership and resilience. It is written for those starting out in the film business, or those wanting to see how others have succeeded when faced with great odds of failure. When not working on a project, she finds inspiration hiking and climbing with her dog, Shiva, in the German Bavarian Alps.

Our every day goal is to work on projects where we share stories and together reach:
Moral Elevation “describes the feeling of being uplifted by an act of uncommon goodness. Elevation brings out what Abraham Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.’ Even in the face of atrocity, elevation leads us to looks at our similarities instead of our differences. We see the potential for good in others and gain hope that we can survive and rebuild. We become inspired to express compassion and battle injustice. As Martin Luther King Junior said, ‘ let no man pull you so low as to hate him.'”
