Matthias Schömer - Viva La Function

„Every experience feeds ideas.“
David Lynch

The production company “Viva la Function” stands for a combination of creativity and function, inspiration and technique.
The philosophy of “Viva la function” is to define new standards, realize ideas without compromises and to take visions into consideration, because:

‘Every good idea deserves it to be alive.’

My name is Matthias Schömer, I am working as director, producer, photographer and lecturer and I am always searching for creativity and new approaches, as well as for creative partners, who want to achieve ideas together.
