Ahh.. he's not Hollywood.
He is a German. There is a loophole in the German law. It basically goes like this: To support German movie development, the government will write-off any German movie's loss. The movie does not have to be shot in German but just the studio is located there. Uwe gets financial backing from rich investors (what other type is there) to make a movie. If the movie flops, the investors get a nice big tax write-off. If it does well (HA HA!), they get money back.
