About Me

My name is Richard Hemmer and before I started consulting TV, film and video-game productions on historical issues, I used to work as a senior consultant for PR and Digital Media.

While I am specialized in the Early Medieval period, I am available for research, consulting or story development in all other periods as well.

I am based in Vienna, Austria where I also obtained my postgraduate-degree in history at the University of Vienna.

I am happy to work remotely and am open to contributing on long- and short-term projects. Have a look at my Services page to find out more about what I do.

Don’t just rely on what I say, though. Here’s what video-game veteran Georg Backer, founder of A Brave Plan has to say:

“Richard’s in-depth research and advice has been immensely invaluable; he clearly loves what he is doing, and he is very, very, incredibly good at it. From broad research to detailed reports and to condensed summaries with the just the required essentials, Richard’s versatile approach is amazing! He also understands and embraces the contextual requirements, in our case an interactive entertainment product (which has its own set of challenges). I cannot recommend Richard highly enough.”
