about

frank martin schmidt - more widely known by his artis name: martines - was born in germany and spent some of his childhood in new york. since  his early days he has two passions. film and sport.  The logic consequence, he studied both. journalism and sport.

After a work placement for axel springer verlag, he worked as a freelance journalist for german tv stations like ard, zdf, and as well private televison like rlt and sat1. martin began his career shooting documentaries, where he worked as a cameraman and director.

the experience he has gained throughout his life has enhanced his intuition and sense for catching moments of humanity. this talent which has successfully employed him during his steady career in commercials and advertisements he started 2000.

martines focuses precisely on the essence – the core – of each story he encounters, permitting him to deliver the message within the shortest timeframe.

his films drive their authenticity from his process of constantly juggling inspirational insights with ideas based on everyday life situations. at the same time martines' vision is clearly story-based, humorous, frequently visual and always human.

in addition his work is characterised by an intuitive gift for casting and rhythm, perfectly matching each story he directs.

He loves the close exchange with clients and agencies and is always interested in the product - it´s history, it´s present and it´s future.
