After a brief excursion directing music videos, Truninger made the leap to feature films in 1996 with Waiting for Michelangelo, a critically acclaimed romantic comedy about four friends lucky in life but unlucky in love. It featured popular Canadian star Roy Dupuis, and was shot in Toronto and Lucerne. The film, distributed by Channel 4 in London, went on to become one of the most widely distributed Swiss films.

During the 1980s he was host of the film programme Neu im Kino, and honed his writing skills working for Swiss and German print media as a film, cultural critic, and photographer. He then went to Munich, where he worked for the Bavarian Public Broadcaster BR, contributing to their Foreign Affairs programmes such as Weltspiegel. Soon thereafter, legendary German television journalist Reinhard Hoffmeister, lured Truninger to join the team of the Arts programme Aspekte. At the German Broadcaster ZDF he also wrote and directed documentaries and docu-dramas. Concurrently he hosted the talk show "Begegnungen", which was broadcast in all of Europe's German speaking regions. As a respected television journalist Truninger was granted unique access to the TV series Wagner where he conducted one of the last on-camera interviews with ailing star Richard Burton.
