Selected Work

The unusual suspect



Hi. I’m Mitch, Director, DoP and an Art Director Film. I’m based in Zurich but work around the world.

I’m also the creator of worlds first interactive super slowmotion music video.

That was my graduation project for Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). I wrote, directed, shot, edited, after effects’ed and coded it myself.

Thanks to that interactive video, within one year from graduation I was an Art Directors Club of New York, Lovies and Webby Awards winner. After that, things took off fast and I worked for three years as Art Director Film in various Advertising Agencies where I wrote, directed and postproduced award winning campaigns for clients like Samsung, Sharoo and Postfinance.

I’m at 30 awards now. But what matters more than awards is that I really love creating things that people enjoy and to help brands connect to their clients in a more modern way than by shouting at them.

I always strive after getting the most out of a briefing, no matter the scale or budget. In my work I constantly try to push storytelling beyond the boundaries of conventional forms and techniques.

Let’s take the path less traveled together.
