Matthias' passion for life is what inspires every aspect of his work across the spectrum of filmmaking, design, still photography, installation work and live events. Matthias began his career as writer and photographer for travel magazines, inspiring a lifelong passion for discovery. Matthias founded Velvet Mediendesign, which is his highly acclaimed design/visual effects house in Munich and has been honored at the highest level with a host of awards from D&AD to Cannes Lions.
His approach to cinematography is unconventional, his perfection in aesthetical finesse is part of his discipline. His sensitivity for unseen imagery derives from a technical expertise in visual effects as well from his experience in photography.
His aesthetic feel for human motion was best demonstrated in his first ballet commissioned for Tod’s and La Scala, Milano. The site-specific piece is a celebration of craftsmanship, Italian heritage and visual rhythm that earned a standing ovation during its debut at Fashion Week.
His recent work includes a 2017 Super Bowl spot for Turkish Airlines featuring legendary actor Morgan Freeman. Other clients include Ford, Nikon, Brita, GE, and Audi.
