After living in the US for a few years, she returned to Brazil to expand her production expertise and ended up co-founding Film Planet. As Executive Producer and managing director for international projects, she established Film Planet as one of the first Brazilian production companies to work for the foreign market, opening offices in the USA and Argentina.

Karin believes that the changes in global production, greater access to technology and the growth of Brazil and neighboring countries, is creating diverse opportunities for the industry in South America. Last year, she launched Home Productions, a concept brand to handle production service with high standards in South America. Having acquired vast experience producing in these markets, Karin partners with producers in different countries and guarantees clients will be serviced with high quality production and feel as safe as they are at Home.
