ANTON POGGIO

Producer/Director, Fixer, Storyteller
A producer/director of over 10 years experience, I am based in Munich, Germany, and operate across Europe with a particular focus on Germany, Austria, Spain and home (Gibraltar).
 
After combining work in the industry with my studies, I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2005 and have been working in various editorial, development and production roles ever since. Some highlights have been: Filming and training with Xavi at FC Barcelona for MTV, taking in the world-famous Fallas festival in Valencia at close quarters, filming with wild hippos in Limpopo for Red Bull Media House, and experiencing the finest spa treatments the Alps have to offer in preparation for a Paul Merton BBC/Channel 5 travel shoot. Most recently I have been travelling the world for Red Bull Media House and GoPro, filming intriguing cultural festivals such as the Onbashira, Tomatina, or even the Great London Pram Race. Alongside this work I have concieved and produced a large number of succesful corporate films for high-profile clients, and also worked on the development and pre-production of a comedy series for Netflix.
I conceive, develop, produce & direct branded and non-branded series, films and campaigns. Whether it's 360 projects, VR social products, factual television series, or long-form documentary films, storytelling stands front and centre! After over 10 years in the industry I have a strong background in both creative and organisational roles. This means that from concept to post-production I have the know-how to get things rolling, and keep the momentum going throughout a project. My extensive network of professional collaborators across Europe and the World means I can scale my operation to fit your needs, however epic; or intimate.
