Wastecooking is a crossmedia project. It includes performances and happenings, a web series, 2 seasons of a TV series and a cinema documentary. Wastecooking is a movement that protests against food waste! Without a moral point finger and with a certain ease. Initiator of wastecooking is the trained cook, filmmaker and activist David Gross. He travels through ten European countries to recycle what is otherwise wasted.
refugee.tv is an act of empowerment. The vision is to create a TV station, which is designed by refugees in cooperation with a German/Austrian film team.
The reporters of refugee.tv came to Europe as refugees. Amongst the refugees coming to Europe are many skilled workers, some filmmakers, journalists and camera men. Many refugees had to flee their home country because they were putting the spotlight on problems and injustices in their home countries. refugee.tv provides them a platform to continue their passionate work.

In 2005, David Gross directed the first of 260 episodes of Gross am Land (David Gross on the countryside). The series soon gained cult status on the TV station Salzburg TV and will be repeated on the successor channel Servus TV, also in 2017. It is an early form of the Slow TV: decelerated random journalism instead of breathless sensation reporting.
