A small video camera was the best toy little Matthias ever had. It was through this youthful passion Matthias learned about every aspect of filmmaking. Even in an early professional context, he never hesitated to do camera, editing and compositing just by himself. And yes, even acting is on the list. This multi-skill background makes him the director he is today: a perfectionist that fully understands every discipline involved, and is on top of every single one of them.
Matthias’ style excels in stories that rely heavily on atmosphere. He uses an alluring mix of graceful art direction, cinematography and sound design to create a strong atmosphere that guides the audience to another world from the very first second. Matthias is not afraid to use special effects, on set or in post, to make his stories go beyond reality.
