Liz P.Hi Matthias,
Thank you to you and the team for all your great work on the video for us. I know the client was very pleased with the quality. I wouldn’t be surprised if they come back asking for more edits at some point, but for now they are quiet.
Warm wishes,

Liz P.

Lena Rasmus, Production ManagerWe are one of the leading independent TV and Film production companies in Germany that produces a wide variety of formats for all major German TV-channels.We hired Matthias as our cameraman and director in Spain for the production of a complete season of a new German reality show in Lloret de Mar, Spain. With his background in broadcast journalism, Matthias was the ideal candidate to fill this interface function. He is highly professional, quick and always knows what is needed by the producer and which picture best suits the story. Always willing to go the extra mile with a smile, Matthias is a pleasure to work with and an asset to any team. Already in the pre-production phase he could give us valuable advice on the use of cameras and equipment. Later during the busy production phase he was able to provide us with missing equipment parts at short notice through his excellent local network.

Michael G.Dear Matthias
I just wanted to take this moment to express our gratitude towards Oriol. He has an excellent work ethic, was always on time and eager to help out wherever required. His camera work was to a high grade as is his technical knowledge. The whole team really appreciated all his efforts and we thoroughly enjoyed working with him and will hopefully have the chance to again in the future.

Many thanks!

Michael G.

Translation of Sabina WolfTranslation of Sabine Wolf:

The filming in Barcelona with Matthias Popp’s crew was first-rate. A great team, fantastic pictures, incredible commitment. We shot TV features and got everything out of the story that we needed, from early in the morning to 11.30 at night - a long day, but as we got it all in the can we didn’t need another day of filming.

Sabina WolfDer Dreh in Barcelona mit dem Team von Matthias Popp war aller erste Sahne. Super Team, tolle Bilder, unglaubliches Engagement. Wir haben reportagig gearbeitet und alles bekommen, was die Story hergab, von früh bis abends um 23h 30. ein langer Tag, aber alles im Kasten und deshalb auch kein weiterer Drehtag nötig.

<br /><p>William Allen, Producer</p>Matthias was a super good production fixer for me in Barcelona on several occasions. He has a great network of production resources and has been able to help me staff and rent reliable crew and equipment. If I need production in Spain I call them first.

We booked Popular Pictures for several days' shooting on the 'DHL Partnership for Volvo Ocean Race' project for the prelude and start of the Volvo Ocean Race in Alicante. His excellent regional contacts in Spain, as well as of course perfect command of both German AND Spanish, made Matthias the ideal media partner for us on location. Accelerated processes, simplified communication and fair prices were the result.

Translation of MEAVISION, Bonn

"Wir haben Popular Pictures für mehrere Drehtage im Projekt "Partnerschaft DHL - Volvo Ocean Race" für den Auftakt des Rennens in Alicante gebucht. Die sehr guten regionalen Kontakte in Spanien, sowie natürlich die perfekte Sprachbeherrschung Deutsch UND Spanisch haben Matthias für uns zum idealen Medienpartner vor Ort gemacht. Beschleunigte Prozesse, vereinfachte Kommunikation und faire Preise waren das Ergebnis."


Translation of Peter CarstensHi Matthias!

Thank you very much for your untiring work on the sailing reportage with Boris Herrmann.
You brought your qualities to the job in a very professional manner: knowledge of the area, fluency in 2 languages, quick (and right) decision making, a great eye for unusual and emotional camera angles, a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere and all of that without even an extra sound man.

Hope to see you in Barcelona soon!

Best regards,

Peter CarstensHallo Matthias!

Vielen Dank für Deinen unermüdlichen Einsatz für die Segelreportage mit Boris Herrmann.
Du hast Deine Qualitäten sehr professionell mit eingebracht:
Ortskundig, fließend in 2 Sprachen, schnelle (und richtige) Entscheidungen, das Feingefühl für die besonderen emotionalen Einstellungen, angenehm entspannte Atmosphäre und das alles auch noch ohne Extra-Tonmann.

Hoffentlich auf bald in Barcelona!

Beste Grüße

Translation of Dirk BorowskiFor a new overseas format from the RTL broadcasting group we entrusted Popular Pictures with the on-site research and protagonist search in Spain. The collaboration process was swift, straightforward and reliable.
We thoroughly recommend Popular Pictures. We'd gladly work with PP again!

<br /><p>Lena Rasmus, Production Manager</p>We highly recommend the work of Matthias in Spain. The material looks great and we were so pleased with his work that we hired him again even outside of Spain for the production of the next season of the reality show in the Austrian Alps.

Matthias Popp worked for us a director and producer for projects up to a length of 10 minutes. He was responsible for the final research, the organization and the realization of several projects within a strict timetable and budget. The shooting of some of these projects had to be done under extreme pressure of time and Matthias Popp managed these projects without problems.
The comments of the crew members were always positive and so were the results of his work.
We are looking forward to working with Matthias Popp in the future.
