Trinkaus-Works from Matthias Cordes on Vimeo.

I recently created a short film about the artist Daniel Trinkaus.

Daniel often combines different kinds of wood and metal in order to create objects like tables or doorbell panel. The goal of the video was to communicate the look and feel of his products.

Interested in communicating your message via film? Feel free to contact me!
