1919 On January 1, Peter Ostermayr’s company “Münchner Lichtspielkunst GmbH” is converted into the “Münchner Lichtspielkunst AG (M.L.K.)” with the assistance of the Bavarian Trade Bank. It is provided with the unusually high capital of two million Marks.
1920 The first film made in the glass workshop at Geiselgasteig is DER OCHSENKRIEG based on the novel by Ludwig Ganghofer. Peter Ostermayr’s brother Franz, who calls himself Franz Osten as a producer, directs the film. Franz Planer is the cameraman.
On May 1, production companies, a further hire company and a cinema are affiliated to the Münchner Lichtspielkunst AG. The Emelka group is born. The share capital is increased to 10 million Marks. The foundation of the group is to be understood as a reaction to the Universum-Film AG (Ufa) founded in Berlin in December 1917, following General Ludendorff’s wish for “standardisation of the German film industry”.
