Honored to have met Matthias Erb, Executive & Supervisory Board at ARRI. 

ARRI is a global player within the motion picture industry, employing around 1,600 staff worldwide. Named after its founders August Arnold and Robert Richter, ARRI was established in Munich, Germany, where the headquarters is still located today. Other subsidiaries are in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Australia.

During our Master’s Degree in Product Design and Communication students embarked on a month-long journey to discover the secrets of commercial video production. 

They collaborated with ARRI: this partnership granted them the rare opportunity to get hands-on experience with professional-grade cameras, offering a glimpse into the realities of film production. 

Matthias offered a glimpse into his career path, also sharing some feedback on our students projects.
