Terra Mater Factual Studios
Markus works as an Executive Producer at Terra Mater Factual Studios where he focuses on the development of new television formats.
Before joining TMFS, Markus worked as a chief editor and presenter of the television science program “Newton”, at the Austrian Public Broadcaster ORF. Prior to that, Markus worked as live reporter and editor for several editorial offices such as the daily news program at the ORF among others. Markus started his career as a journalist as a radio editor and news presenter in Salzburg.
He has a university degree (University Graz (A) / Williams College (USA)) and a deep interest and fascination in all things science. Markus considers his live attendance at the 2008 CERN LHC particle collider activation as one of his all time favorite and moving experiences. When Markus is not being moved by particle physics and not working on the development of new television formats, he passes his time with his family, exercises for the Großglockner mountain run, produces digital works of scientific art and ponders on possibilities on how he could sometime squash the Dive Master qualification in between.
Monika works as a producer in Terra Mater Factual Studios’ Factual Entertainment & Formats Development Department. She focuses on the development and creation of new, innovative formats for television. Earlier as a freelancer, she already produced several documentaries for global Red Bull TV and ServusTV on behalf of TMFS.
Even prior to that, Monika worked in various areas: she produced kids programmes for Disney Channel, numerous entertainment shows for German broadcasters like Pro7, ZDF and Sat1 and more TV shows and documentaries for all major Austrian broadcasters such as ATV, ORF, ServusTV and Puls4.
Monika holds a master’s degree in Journalism (University of Vienna). And she is a very sporty one: if you are looking for a passionate kite instructor, fearless mountain-biker or tough ski-mountaineer, call her. If she is not busy filming, you have a good chance to meet her up- and downhill all around the world.
