    Matthias Hedwig

    After graduation I completed a degree in German and worked in the newsrooms of the broadcasters WDR and RTL. But since I wanted to direct, I switched to the live direction and supervised as a scheduling coordinator various news and magazine formats.
    At the same time as the Master's thesis, I took up the training as Assistant Director at the Filmhaus Köln.
    It then followed different series formats as an assistant, including "The Rescue Flyer", "Linden Street", "Coast Guard" and "The Country Doctor". My way also led me abroad to shoot the movie "World Express" in Mexico. This resulted in a long-standing collaboration with the English director Robert del Maestro, who was a great teacher to me.
    In 2012, I directed the series "Alles was zählt" for the first time and staged 46 episodes in 3 years. This was followed by the series "Soko Leipzig", "Mila" and "Unter uns".
