Michael is a commercials director.
This is his Fabrik.
Michael grew up in a family of artists. His uncle is a novelist of Europe-wide fame, his grandmother one of Switzerland's most famous actresses and his grandfather has founded Switzerland's biggest production company, later to be run by his father. During school Michael was engaged in photography and made Super-8 films. With the pocket money he earned from editing films for his dad, he bought his first drum kit.
After graduation Michael spent his time gigging and recording; both as a drummer and a singer, until he had nightmare one night in which he caught himself playing in a hotel band at age sixty, and decided to start working in the film industry.
Starting off in the camera department, he soon turned director. Since then, he has shot for clients such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, Renault, Mazda, Switzerland Tourism, Carlsberg Breweries, COI, Swisscom, AXA, Credit Suisse, Swiss Post and many others.
His commercials have won over a hundred awards at festivals including Cannes Lions, Epica Awards, Eurobest, Cristal Festival, Art Director's Club New York, New York Festivals, Klappe Germany, Art Director's Club Germany, Art Director's Club Switzerland, EDI Switzerland. He is member of the Art Directors Club Switzerland (ADC) and of the Director's Guild of America (DGA).
Michael is using our Calico theme, which gives his video content plenty of space to breathe. Each of his films are supported by a series of still images, making for a very engaging and dramatic portfolio of work.
If a picture can speak a thousand words then your cover image is pretty important. Our themes and layouts have options to display large, high-focus cover images for your projects and blog posts. If you’re looking for an ultra-slick portfolio we can cover your video files with a clickable high-resolution cover image too.
Within each theme choose from a variety of layouts to fine-tune how your content is presented. From grids of small, medium or large thumbnails to stacks, magazine layouts, gallery slideshows and fullscreen options - find the perfect fit yourself. And the best news of all; you can change layouts from page to page too, so if one project looks better in one layout then go with it.
Our support team are on-hand to help you get your Fabrik site set up and live. If you need help adding your content or more technical aspects such as linking your domain then look no further.
