About Matthias


Matthias is an acclaimed director whose work spans both narrative and TV commercials. Since his first short film, Brod Ludaka, was placed on the shortlist for the Oscars, he’s helmed adverts for leading brands around the world. His talent in composing images with exacting precision has led to a raft of awards, including two Gold Cannes Lions.

His aesthetically unique camera style and love for using special effects in front of the lens has seen him direct adverts for Nikon, Samsung, Oppo, Nespresso and McLaren. His work for Nissan and Playstation won two Gold Cannes Lions, and his work for Nespresso was awarded both Silver and Bronze EVCOM Awards.

He has strengthened his long-format skills while directing The Craftsmen’s Dinner, a documentary series for The Balvenie whisky featuring Michel Roux; a mini doc series for the 2021 Rolex Awards Laureates; and a three-part documentary about cultural life in the Emirates for BBC StoryWorks.

Matthias’s music-video portfolio includes the award-winning video for Mark Knopfler’s Wherever I Go, and a partnership with Belgian band Hooverphonic, for whom he directed their 2020 Eurovision song entry, Release Me, and acted as Creative Director on Looking For Stars, a film in collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana.

Right now Matthias is focusing more on fiction. Together with the director of The Serpent, he is developing a six-episode TV series, This Is Not A Murder Mystery, while his first feature film, The Fearless Tigers, is in pre-production with the producers of the Oscar-nominated films The Insult and Days Of Glory.
