Frankfurt, Germany (Weltexpress). Born in the UK and educated in both England and the US, Geraldine is of dual-nationality. With a solid background in journalism, music and the performing arts, (and several decades in the music business), she moved on to become an active film and TV screenwriter, lyricist, music and script consultant for numerous European productions and production houses, specializing in screenplay development and dramaturgy in Europe and the USA.
Parallel to these activities and upon relocating to Germany in 1984, she worked as a screenwriter, TV journalist and producer (IHT-TV, RTL, ZDF, Deutsche Bank TV), and as a freelance print journalist for a variety of music and film industry publications.
In 2001, she entered the corporate world, joining the Board of Directors of publicly-traded, US film production company Kings Road Entertainment Inc. in Los Angeles, producer of more than 28 motion pictures including SLAP SHOT, ALL OF ME, THE BIG EASY, JACKNIFE, FASTBREAK, and the KICKBOXER franchise, where she served as CEO until 2007. During her tenure she was responsible for administering all aspects of a US publicly trading corporation: management, IR, public filings, film library administration, and was in charge of feature film development and international co-production activities. Ms. Blecker is still a shareholder of this Company.
Back in Germany since 2007, Geraldine has been focusing her talents on journalism and creative writing, including screenplays, literary adaptations, and film reviews, as well as working as a voice-over artist.
