Born in Salzburg, Austria, Thomas studied directing at the prestigious FilmAkademie Baden Württemberg and, due to his immense talent, was picked up by a French production company while he was still in school. Shortly after his signing he was nominated for the Young Director Award at Cannes and profiled at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors showcase. Thomas hasn’t stopped since. He’s become a sought- after director worldwide for his distinct style of dazzling imagery and effective action sequences, something that has translated particularly well in his automotive work.
