Terra Mater Factual Studios

Philip-Jaime Alcazar

Producer, Digital & Communications

Philip works as Producer in the Digital & Communications Unit of Terra Mater Factual Studios. He develops and produces the video content for the YouTube- and Instagram-channel of the company.

To keep up with changing times is Philip’s tenet: He started his career in the theatrical feature film production and joined Terra Mater Factual Studios in 2012. From there, he found his way from the big screen to online and mobile content: after founding his own production company, he returned to TMFS in 2019 to lead the company’s content production for their social media channels.

With his deep proficiency in several languages, his experience in film and media production and his strong business acumen, Philip is doing his best to serve Terra Mater’s digital unit.

Katrin Blaß

Assistant Producer, Digital & Communications

As Assistant Producer in the Digital & Communications Department, Katrin supports Philip and Eva by developing and producing content for Terra Mater Factual Studios’ YouTube and Instagram channels. With a keen grasp of today’s social media needs, Katrin has quickly emerged as the department’s Instagram specialist.

Katrin loves being creative and has a passion for scientific journalism. Already during school, she started writing short-stories about animals and conservation.  Katrin holds a university degree in journalism and public relations (FH Joanneum Graz). Before joining TMFS, she worked for the Print and Online departments of German educational monthly magazine GEO in Hamburg.

During leisure time, Katrin loves spending her time with her family, dog and friends. On the weekends, you will definitely find her in the mountains – either wearing a pair of skis, in a climbing harness, or with some hot tea in front of a small hut, enjoying the scenery.

Eva Schmidt - Head of Program Development

Eva Schmidt

Head of Digital & Communications

As Head of Digital & Communications, Eva manages Terra Mater Factual Studios’ online and social media business, executes the internal and external communications and oversees all marketing activities for the internationally acclaimed company. Since spring 2019, she and her team run the digital channels of TMFS, transferring the conservation- and environment-conscious commitment of the company to YouTube and Instagram (coming fall 2019). Furthermore, Eva is working together closely with the management team and often deals with strategically significant projects. Before her maternity leave in 2015, she managed TMFS’ department of Factual Entertainment & Format Development, where she and her team developed and produced new, innovative programs for the national and international market.

25 years of experience in the television- and advertisement-industry, as well as a master’s degree in journalism provide the basis for Eva to precisely sense what the audience wants, how the story should be told and where and when a project should be communicated. For almost a decade she created and produced a wide variety of television programs in the Program Development Department of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF). In 2007, she moved to ORF’s science department, heading the weekly Science Magazine Program. In 2011, Eva joined Terra Mater Factual Studios and has been a staff member since the very beginning of the company.
