Hi. I'm Mitch. A Swiss director and DoP. I'm based in Zurich but work around the globe.
I'm the creator of worlds first interactive super slow motion music video. That was back in 2012.
I wrote, directed, DoP'ed, edited after effects'ed and coded it myself. Thanks to that interactive video, within one year of graduation at Zurich University of the Arts I was an Art Directors Club of New York, Lovies, and Webby Awards winner.
Another of my interactive music videos ended up competing against Pharrell Williams at the Webbies and Bob Dylan at the Lovie Awards.
After that, I spent three years as an art director film in various ad agencies, helping brands to reach millions of users.
I wrote, directed and post-produced interactive videos, virals, 360° VR experiences, PreRoll Ads and good old TVCs.
Brands I worked with include Under Armour, Swisscom, Samsung, FREITAG, Sharoo and Postfinance and I had the privilege to work with personalities like Stephan Remmler, Ronja Furrer, Marcel Hirscher, Wendy Holdener, Andri Ragettli, Seven and James Gruntz.
I'm a member of Art Directors Club Switzerland and won over 40 national and international awards – but what matters much more to me is my passion for helping brands connect to their audience in a more modern way than by shouting at them.
In my work I always strive after getting the most out of a briefing, no matter the scale or budget.
Let's do something epic together!
