Matthäus is half German and half Sicilian. This would normally qualify anyone either for organised crime or film production. Some people claim there is no difference between the two.
Matthäus Bussmann is an award- winning director whose work includes commercials for VW, Porsche, Opel, Mercedes, T-Mobile, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Sears, Reebok and many others. His style is driven by a contemporary visual aesthetic with engaging performances across a range of genres and categories, including automotive, fashion and lifestyle.
Born in Frankfurt, Bussman grew up being inspired by films and their reflection of ever-changing youth culture. He fed his appetite reading behind-the-scenes books about his favorite TV series. Before starting directing in 1996 he learnt the rope of production and postproduction, in the lighting and camera departments and became a first rate editor mastering the craft of telling an entire story in seconds.
It is in his nature to be always searching for new challenges. We believe that this is the secret behind his enduring success and extraordinary showreel displaying an innate understanding of what is hot, right here, right now.
Matthäus’s work is epic, emotive and unexpected. He can turn an idea into a sensory feast that leaves both the viewer and the commissioning client hungry for more.
