About Us

KOSMA was developed because there was no professional film production software covering all areas of financial planning and controllling. The solutions on the market could only create budgets or are limited to local markets. And Excel is extremely flexible, but at the same time very prone to operating errors. We didn't want to accept the fact that in all other areas of film production, innovation is changing the business, while production people are still using the same old software like they did 20 years ago.

Founders Valentin Greutert and Joachim Knaf combine the business knowledge and the technical knowledge that was needed to undertake this challenge. KOSMA is the next generation budget management software, making the management of film finances more easy, precise and efficient. Our team of product development experts, programmers and customer support specialists is now working towards making KOSMA known all over Europe.

KOSMA was initially released under the name APMS. In 2019 it was rebranded to KOSMA. The development of the software was supported by the MEDIA fund of the European Union as well as by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture. Headstart Media, which is developing and distributing KOSMA, has offices in Zurich, Switzerland and Tallinn, Estonia.
